We received Harvard Sustainability Grant at the beginning of this mouth, which help us to afford the server and device expense.

Website and IOS App are still underdevelopment, we have workable prototype now. Include: tag system, login and register system, items scanner.


We met with collectors who come to Harvard Surplus Center every week, and presented our new plan for this facility.

We got a lot of useful suggestions and proposals which help us to create basic functions and build the frame of our website.

We applied the Harvard Student Sustainability Grant Program at this week. See below for the detail of this program:

“The Harvard Student Sustainability Grant Program provides seed funding to graduate and undergraduate students/student groups for environmental projects that contribute to Harvard’s campus sustainability goals. Areas of sustainable focus include: energy reduction, waste and resource reduction, community awareness, health, and research to inform policy. “
