Here's how it works:
The goal of this swap is to provide a more eco-friendly way to "shop" outside of fast fashion. Our goal is to put gently used items in your closet that you can wear out with friends & family, to work, while being active or while lounging at home. To participate, drop off five to ten items of clothing and/or accessories, clean and in good shape, to Amanda before the event. On the night of the event, prepare to “shop!” To drop off your items ahead of time, please bring them to the Adult Services desk on the 2nd floor. All adult sizes are welcome! This event is for adults, so please no children's clothing. This year, we will also be swapping shoes! Have some extra hangers you don't need? We will also take them to use at the swap!
We will not accept:
X T-shirts (We’re talking the old frayed college tee, the random 5K tee, etc.)
X Anything with a rip/hole*, stain, or heavy fading
X Children's clothing
*If the item is purposely distressed, it is permitted. Ex: jeans with distressing.
In this Sustainable Style series of programming, we will learn ways to step out of the fast fashion vortex and answer the age old question “What will I wear?” in a sustainable way. At this clothing swap, refresh your wardrobe and share your personal style with your community! Clothing swaps are a sustainable way to refresh your wardrobe without contributing to fast fashion. By exchanging clothes, you can give new life to items that may have been discarded and find unique pieces to add to your collection. This helps reduce textile waste and the carbon footprint associated with producing new clothing. Swapping clothes is both eco-friendly and budget-friendly, making it a win-win for you and the planet.
