Reducing Waste in an Equitable Space
The Dickinson Free xChange aims to 1) reduce waste and promote reuse, 2) provide a safe, equitable and accessible space for the exchange of second-hand clothing, accesories and textbooks to every Dickinsonian and 3) create awareness of the social, economic, and environmental impacts of consumerism.
The Free xChange recognizes the variety of backgrounds, identities and experiences that exist in our community and we are dedicated to ensuring that this space remains an inclusive and equitable environment for everyone. Our goal is to make this a space where everyone can find what they need to express who they are or who they want to be. Discrimination and intolerance will not be permitted in this space.

Open Free xChange events and educational programs provide opportunities to engage the broader campus in a culture of reuse and sustainability. Ultimately, Free xChange volunteers want to provide knowledge and resources to encourage members of the campus community to change their behavior to become more mindful consumers. It’s important to note that nothing will be sold, wasted, or landfilled in this program. Excess items will be donated to the United Way of Carlisle and Cumberland County in partnership with the U-Turn Green Move Out Program. Dickinson Free xChange is managed by the Center for Sustainability Education, but is strongly supported by volunteers. Get involved today. Everyone is welcomed to participate in Free xChange and accessibility is critical to our mission.
