For the first time, three cities are coming together for a big Swap Party.
If you are around the area, join the fun!
What is a Swap Party?
A swap party is a gathering where guests bring an established amount of clothes and / or accessories and you take home pieces that you find of your liking. Usually the same amount you bring to the swap, you take home. As the old saying goes: someone’s trash is another person’s treasure. The same applies to a clothing swap. While you might be tired of that blue dress, it might be exactly what someone else is been looking for.
A Swap Party is an eco-friendly, free and fun way to refresh your wardrobe.
Did you know?
The average US Citizen throws away 70 lbs. of clothing annually.
If everyone bought one used item instead of new this year:
- We would save 5.7B lbs. of CO2 emissions.
That is half a million cars taken off the road for a year.
- Also, we would save 11B kWh of energy.
That would be enough to light up the Eiffel Tower for 141 years.
- And, we would save 25B gallons of water.
That would be enough to fill 1,140 Bellagio fountains.
