Revolutionary Idea: Free Shit

OUSA is running a one-week trial of a new ‘Freebox’ service this week. Students drop off items they no longer need outside the OUSA Main Office, and other students will then be able to grab themselves useful stuff for free.

The initiative is the brainchild of OUSA Colleges and Communications Officer Francisco Hernandez, who told Critic that the scheme was aimed at promoting “recycling, sustainability and all that community jazz.”
Whether or not the Freebox will become a permanent service is dependent on student reaction, so Hernandez encourages students to both donate to and utilise the box during the trial period.
As a gesture of support Critic plans to donate a chipped OUSA mug, a broken stapler, and Critic’s useless news team.
