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 have launched two initiatives to help people in Oxford reduce consumption and waste:

  • We run a Library of Things, launched on February 16th 2019. This enables you to borrow instead of buy items which are only occasionally needed, such as outdoor, domestic, cooking equipment and more. Read more about the concept on our mission page.
  • We run a regular series of Repair Cafés, where our volunteers will fix your broken items to keep them in use for longer.
