Students can get Fair Share of uni bargains.

Incoming Stirling students are being encouraged to shop second hand in the new semester.

The Fair Share, which is the outlet for the Student Union's reuse project, provides'pre-loved' items including homeware for students.

Items at Revolve-certified stores are checked for quality, safety and cleanliness against Scotland's reuse quality standard Revolve, awarded by ZeroWaste Scotland. This year, the outlet saved a personal record 73 tonnes of CO2e, beating their previous record of 71 tonnes.

Stirling students are being encouraged to furnish their accommodation at the outlet which is based at the campus' Green and Blue Space, situated between the bookshop and Students'Union shop in the Atrium.

Communications manager at Stirling Students'Union, Nick Manton, said:"If you're starting at Stirling, you can get all the things you need to start at University right fromThe Fair Share, our Revolve-certified store.

"We're getting ready for the term and sorting items ready for Freshers'Week, but we're still accepting donations from post-graduates so can expect the number of items to rise even more."
