Good As New


Good As New is a reuse and waste reduction initiative that encourages all New School students to donate reusable school supplies and materials at the end of each semester so that these items stay out of landfills, and can be used by other students in the future.

Items and materials including wood, metal, plastic, paper, art supplies and tools are collected at drop-off points around campus. The materials will be stored and sorted over the summer, then distributed free of cost at the beginning of the following school year.

Good as New is a collaborative effort with planning and implementation contributions from students, faculty, and staff representing the Tishman Environment and Design Center, the Parsons Making Center, Student Success, the Food and Housing Insecurity Working Group, Student Housing and Residential Education, and others.

The 2019 Good as New had 275 students attend and receive free supplies! We will be holding the next free sale at the beginning of the 2020-2021 academic year and we will be working on initiatives to make the free sale more of a year round event!
