The goal of u·reuse is to encourage and enlighten users on the benefits of choosing to use reusable products over disposable ones. Many people choose the disposable option out of habit, availability, or cost. Some aren’t educated on ways that you can make a sustainable impact, even if they are small.
This site works as both a store and social platform, a place where everything is consolidated, thus taking out the extra steps that could deter the user from making the switch. The user can buy new reusable goods or link up with another user in the community to buy and sell goods. Community plays a big part in this site’s functionality as the user can participate in discussion boards to talk about sustainable events in the area or share ideas on how to cut down on waste consumption. Speculatively, the user can temporarily lock certain items or places in their home to help them break the habits of reaching for their easily accessible disposable products.
