Swap trash for treasure at the Frog Trade

Holiday shopping is for the brave among us. Who really wants to stand in endless lines, waiting for hours on end for mechanical hamsters or $3 toasters?

Frog Trade, offered by the university’s Public Relations Student Society of America, provides a great alternative to sore feet and bad attitudes. Today and today only, bring your used items to Sadler Lawn from noon to 4:30 p.m. and trade them for other students’ used items.

Not only will you experience the rush of finding a great bargain, you’ll be helping out the environment – something everyone should feel good about. The whole idea for Frog Trade aims to cut down on the 4.5 pounds of waste the average person produces every day. With the end of the semester approaching, many students are packing their stuff and taking the essentials back home for break. This creates a lot of trash, and sometimes items that are still good are thrown away.

Even if you just want to pass on a couple of items, think purple, live green and go to Frog Trade.
