ReFrog is a TCU Sustainability Committee volunteer initiative whose mission is to make TCU's move-out process more sustainable by diverting usable items from the landfill to community members. Students, alumni, parents, faculty, and staff were dismayed to see that in the rush to move out, many students discard perfectly usable items into overflowing dumpsters. In 2023, we teamed up with partners on and off campus to rescue these items from the landfill and get them into the hands of people and organizations who will continue using them.
