The New School provides an incubator for environmental awareness and involvement among students. Combining our commitment to sustainability with the need to fundraise, led to the founding of our “Outta the Box” Thrift Store — an inexpensive place to shop for trendy, offbeat, and chic clothing and household wares. We are conveniently located at 8 York Street, Kennebunk (Route 1) just down the road from The New School.
