"We are seeing impressive savings, both monetary and carbon! Warp It is brilliant, it has changed the face of re-use for organisations forever and for the better!"

- Lucy Ardnt, Sustainability officer, University of St Andrews

"The simple attraction is the ability to advertise unwanted assets easily and conveniently, giving us the opportunity to actually reduce procurement. We have saved £1000s just by better internal sharing of surplus inkjet cartridges. We have saved £1000s for schools by redistributing lever arch files"

- Hilary Phillips, Change Management lead, Sunderland City Council

"Imperial College London registered with Warp It over a year ago and it was just what we were waiting for! With such large organisation and relatively little storage space, Warp it seems tailor made for us. More and more staff and students are registering and give positive feedback on how useful and easy it is to use"

- Helen Swanton, Waste & Recycling Officer Imperial College London

"The Warp It scheme has been a significant success in Sunderland and has progressed well beyond our expectations. It is a fantastic example of partnership working between the public, private and third sector. Warp It reflects a core aim of the City’s partners, that is to work together to achieve something much bigger than any individual organisation ever could achieve on their own"

- Jessica May, Partnership Manager

"I think it is an absolutely fantastic service and as a small business, it has been invaluable for me in getting set up. More companies should be involved in it! I will certainly recommend the website to business colleagues "

- Susan Lang, Business consultancy

"It is so easy to use, simple and quick. You will save money straightaway as well as pooling resources with other schools. It’s brilliant- I’m gobsmacked. If I had known it was this easy I would’ve used it much earlier."

- Glenis Wallace, Sunningdale School

"A pioneering tool that genuinely combines some of the Council’s top priorities: reducing waste, saving money and supporting local groups and communities"

- Bryan Harris, Sustainability Manager, Dundee City Council

"Warp it is a no brainer with so many benefits. We steer staff to the portal which reduces procurement and waste spend. After only a few months, the benefits were obvious"

- Julie Parkinson, Category Procurement Specialist, Northumberland County Council

"I would definitely recommend the system. It has solved all the issues we had trying to reuse assets. We have rolled the system out to other large organisations in the city"

- Dianne Pattison, Policy Officer, Sunderland City Council

"Warp It has achieved significant financial savings whilst also providing environmental and social benefits."

- Lee Jackson, Commercial and Procurement Services Manager, Northumberland County Council

"We are in the process of moving stations and have found Warp it an essential way to reuse and release unwanted furniture back into the community. It reduces furniture going to landfill and money saved goes into front line policing."

- Dave Matthews, Administrative Officer at Avon and Somerset Police

"I don’t think people are aware of how easy it is. Everyone’s got to look after the budget and this really will save you money."

- Linda Nesbitt, John F Kennedy Primary School

"With all the cuts in government spending, Devon County Council is radically down sizing its floor space and relocating staff to different premises. By using Warp it we can identify and move surplus furniture between offices more efficiently and pass surplus items to community organisations such as schools and charities"

- Cabinet Member for Performance and Engagement, Councillor Barry Parsons, Devon County Council.

- Anon, Cheshire & Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust

It's just perfect for re-using all that junk that accumulates in the photocopier room, making sure you don't cry at the perfectly good office chairs, desks etc. that normally get binned during office moves and finding those odds and sods that sometimes you just don't have in the office!

- John Bailey, University of London

We have had loads of help to get Warp it off the ground, many thanks!

- Matthew Shaw-Smith, Greater Manchester West NHS Foundation Trust

I think it is a brilliant way to re-use things rather than throwing away - there is far too much wastage in this world, people should value time and effort which goes into producing things.

This is an excellent way for teams to save valuable resources (financial and material) and avoid waste.

Before Warpit, equipment that was not in disrepair was dumped when it wasn't needed as there was no means to store or recycle.

- Anon, Cheshire & Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust

The site is great and improving all the time. You have always taken our feedback and supported our wacky requests.

This system has allowed us to provide resources we otherwise would not have known about and perhaps slipped passed us and out of the organisation.

We are trying to spread the word within our sector and beyond. We are about to use the system for another major project with the inventory underway as I write this.

- Anon, City of Edinburgh Council

Easy to navigate website and I have been able to claim a number of items.

- Anon, Cheshire & Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust

Warpit is very, very good.

- Anon, Dundee City Council

Great idea, well executed!

- Steve Salvini, Heriot Watt

At these times where we are constantly having to make savings for CRES, I do hope all members of staff utilise this service where ever possible.

Many thanks.
