The Thing Library: an update
TREA partnered with the Reimagine Institute for Community Sustainability to establish The Thing Library in London. The Thing Library will help Londoners build a more sustainable future by lending gardening tools, kitchen utensils, home renovation tools, and more. Why buy something you need only once, or once a year, when you can borrow it? Better for your budget, better for the planet! The Thing Library's anticipated opening is Spring 2022!

We express our sympathy, and desire to see and take greater efforts on this and similar First Nation issues that must be acknowledged, and where Canada needs to create new pathways.
