Lazy Blog Post: Admire the Wesleyan Enviro Organization's Tag Sale!

This is so smart. It solves the problem of what to do with these items at the end of the year if you don't need them, or have no way to ship them home, keeps the stuff out of landfills,and gives the next year's entering class a change to consume lower on the stuff chain, by reusing! And the net goes to charity!

EON Raises $9,000 for Charity with Tag Sale

Wesleyan's Environmental Organizers Network hosted a Waste Not! tag sale Sept. 5-7 inside the former Moconaughy Dining Hall.

Indeed a great project! Cliche as it may sound, but someone else's trash could definitely be another's treasure. Good job! My Well Of wealth
