Objective / Goal of the activity

Throughout their mobility, students buy stuff for their daily use but they do not need to carry it back with them when they return. This was a way for them to put their stuff to good use instead of just throwing it away.


We contacted Erasmus Charity Box and a non-profit organization Pääste Armee and received charity boxes from them. These boxes were placed in all ESN section offices in Tallinn (there are 4 different sections in the city). Students could give away whatever they wished or thought that it could be useful for students who come to Tallinn in the upcoming semester.
Depending on the ESN section, students could visit the office and place anything they wanted into the boxes. The idea was that in the upcoming semester, if any one of the new students needed something and they saw it in the charity, they could just take it. Whatever was leftover we could give away to the charity organisation.

Result of the activity

Boxes were placed in each ESN section and students participated actively. Almost every box was filled to the top with clothes and other items that the students wished to give away. This was one of the nicest ways to reduce waste and reuse items in perfectly good condition that would have otherwise been thrown away.
