Opening hours: Monday - Friday 11am-5pm

ReStore Lancaster is a new sustainability store concept where Lancaster University is working in partnership with St John’s Hospice and Green Lancaster. The shop is a combination of a charity shop with donated items for sale, alongside selling affordable and eco-friendly products to the campus community. The shop sells a variety of items, such as clothing, homewares, cycling equipment, eco-friendly toiletries, and more. The shop also provides a year-round space for the Green Lancaster Don’t Ditch It project, where household items are donated at the end of each year, before being upcycled and resold to new students.

ReStore Lancaster will donate a percentage of its profits to both St John’s Hospice and Green Lancaster. The shop will also aim to host events and workshops to raise awareness and educate people about sustainability and ethical consumption.

Our partners

ReStore Lancaster is a collaboration between Lancaster University, Green Lancaster and St John's Hospice.

St John's Hospice

We are working with local charity, St John's Hospice to bring pre-loved clothing and accessories to ReStore. Your donated goods and the items you buy from ReStore will bring much-needed income to directly fund the many hospice services provided - whilst supporting sustainable and environmentally friendly shopping.

Bike accessories

If you're travelling to and from campus by bike, or thinking about cycling as a healthy alternative to other travel modes, ReStore sells a small selection of cycling accessories such as equipment, locks and puncture repair kits.

University merchandise

A small range of sustainable university merchandise is available for sale in ReStore. Items include reusable water bottles and coffee cups, sustainable clothing and recyclable stationery.

Don't Ditch It

ReStore will be working in partnership with Green Lancaster to provide a place year-round for any household items donated through the Don't Ditch It project. Upcycled students' unwanted household goods helps to raise funds for Green Lancaster and their sustainable projects on campus.
