Meet Hazaar: The UK’s very first zero-waste student marketplace

We are revolutionising the way students and universities approach sustainability. Made for students, by students.

We collaborate closely with universities to change consumption behaviours and prevent valuable items from going to waste.

Our app creates university-specific marketplaces without the need for postage, facilitating affordable, sustainable solutions and supporting student entrepreneurs. Students are at the heart of what we do, and our Head of Hazaar Programme empowers students and ambassadors to drive change.
