The Good As New Free Sale
Sunday, August 20, 2017 at 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm
University Center, 5th Floor 63 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY
All new and returning students are invited to shop for FREE, new and gently used school supplies, art supplies, home goods, and other fun and useful items.
Students must show New School ID. The Free Sale will end at 5:00 pm or as long as supplies last.
Good As New is a reuse and waste reduction initiative that encourages all New School students to donate reusable school supplies and materials at the end of each semester so that these items stay out of landfills, and can be used by other students in the future.
Items and materials including wood, metal, plastic, paper, art supplies, home goods, and tools are collected at drop-off points around campus including building lobbies, the Making Center at 2 West 13th Street, and in select studio classrooms. The materials are stored and sorted over the summer, then distributed free of cost at the beginning of the school year.
Good as New is a collaborative effort with planning and implementation contributions from students, faculty, and staff representing the Tishman Environment and Design Center, the Parsons Making Center, Student Success, Student Housing and Residential Education, and others.
