The Clark Community Thrift Store is a student-run non-profit business that helps cut down on over-consumption and waste and provides inexpensive college essentials, house wares, furniture, and gently used clothing to the Clark community and the surrounding area. The Community Thrift Store has a mission of providing sustainable and affordable items to the community. Our session will workshop the process of opening a sustainable campus thrift store, and allow for an open conversation about what it means to run a sustainable business. The session will be built around the audience, and will be led by what they are interested in discussing and learning, in addition to the Community Thrift Store staff providing some background information about logistical challenges and how we have dealt with barriers.
