With support from the Eastern Midlands Region Waste Office, VOICE have partnered up with The Dublin Food Coop, ShareCity and WeShare to bring a Library of Things to Dublin for the first time as part of National Reuse Month.
A Library of Things allows people to borrow items needed only on an occasional basis. By sharing items it reduces the need for material production and consumption, and allows people to free up space in their homes and try new hobbies without the need to buy new supplies.
