The idea for Tundra Trader came from a long time Sloper that hated seeing so much good material go to waste. "We need a classifieds just for the oil field that different companies can use to help each other out." Used materials and equipment are exchanged "as is," free items save costly disposal and transportation costs, and the stuff category even lets you buy and sell personal items like mini-fridges and tvs. In a low price environment, we're all looking for ways to cut costs. Tundra Trader is an online community that promotes reusing, recycling, and re-purposing. It reduces wastes and saves costly trips up and down the haul road. The site is not-for-profit. there are no ads it's free and easy to use, a green initiative, and can generate cost savings for all of us on the North Slope. .
