Welcome to SHARE Oxford

We are passionate about saving waste.
We aim to make sharing easier, to increase access to good quality things so that we may reduce consumption and waste, save money, save the environment, and feel good about it.

What we do

We launched a Library of Things in Feb 2019,
enabling you to borrow instead of buy items
needed only occasionally,
such as outdoor, domestic, cooking equipment and more.
