The Seasonal Clothing Swap hopes to attract many participants with its “Swap it Like it’s Hot” catchphrase. Eultgen says the goal of the Seasonal Clothing Swap event is to promote buying secondhand clothes.
On May 3rd, 2014 the ELO and Tigers for Community Agriculture held the first ever Tiger Farm-To-Table Dinner on campus.
“(Bike Share) is a great idea because what a university does is prepare students for the future,” RHA Sustainability Coordinator James Jordan said. “Bike Share does just that with its sustainable ideas and values.”
Events included dinner with local farmers, a taste-before-you-waste food day, a wasted food buffet, a documentary film showing and a visit to Bradford Farm.
Hill said one of her main goals with ELO is to team up with other campus groups to stage events and spread the word. “It’s something people my age care about,” she said. “It’s not just something hippies do.”
The ELO office encourages bicycles as a mode of transportation and supports the repair efforts because bicycles are an affordable and healthy mode of transportation that results in very little environmental impact.
The second farmer’s market of the year took place Thursday on Lowry Mall. Various goods, including apple butter, lettuce and naturally raised beef were available to students, faculty and staff.

By putting on the program, we hope to make biking a more affordable option for cash-strapped college students, who may be both unable to pay for regular maintenance and repairs or unable to make it to off-campus bike shops.
