|OwlSwap is dedicated to responsibly discarding outdated materials such as banners, signs, and apparel through our University Textile Recycling Program — a triple-bottom-line initiative at KSU! Established in 2019, OwlSwap has successfully facilitated recycling by sending excess branded materials from KSU to re:loom for upcycling. Triple-bottom-line programs support
people, benefit our planet, and are profitable. This program has resulted in the continued diversion of thousands of pounds of university textiles from the landfill; and the partnership between KSU and re:loom creates a closed-loop system. You can purchase upcycled KSU merchandise made by re:loom in the campus bookstore or on their website. This program affirms KSU's commitment to sustainability while working to lift individuals
and communities out of poverty.
|The connection between KSU and re:loom lowers the university's impact on the environment,
reduces waste disposal costs, and supports the creation of a closed-loop system. We
expect to see upcycled KSU goods made by re:loom available for purchase on campus
soon. This program affirms KSU's commitment to sustainability while positively impacting
individuals and communities.
