Always eager to seek out new ideas implemented by other universities, I stumbled across Northern Colorado's "Swamp O' Rama" clothing swap, an annual event that calls students to donate their unwanted clothes in exchange for one ticket per item to redeem other donated clothing.

The swap is put on by the Campus Recreation Center and is a great means of freshening up your wardrobe while reducing waste.

A write-up about the event can be found on their website.

Hokies-why not implement this in Blacksburg next year? Or host a smaller one with friends?
