Engaging your organisation in reuse is getting more and more popular each month, as we see and hear sentiment and content from all around the industry push this method of resource efficiency. Through Warp It, members have managed to save more than £13 million collectively, with almost £7 million coming from members of the £100k club!
With so many organisations, including businesses, charities, hospitals, NHS trusts, universities, colleges and schools now benefiting from our service, we thought it would be a great opportunity to highlight those who have exceeded £100,000 in savings.
Celebrate your successes
Continued motivation is so important for keeping a reuse programme operating - we’ve heard a few cases where the honeymoon period finishes and people struggle to keep up their engagement levels. To counteract this, we champion the idea of celebrating every victory, no matter how big or small (we even put together an epic downloadable that shows you some great celebration exercises that also build team ethic)

There’s one more organisation in the club
NIBSC are not our usual kind of member, but that hasn’t stopped them from being one of the best performers. With over £174,000 saved, we’d prefer for you to read these two articles, here, and here, to let them do the talking and explain how they’ve been so successful with reuse. It landed them a few national awards, so we highly recommend leaning on their expertise and experience.
