Have you been wondering how to refresh your wardrobe without heading to the shops and adding to landfill?
A community clothes swap group swapping women’s clothing is once again getting together this Saturday July 28 at Wildspace on Main Arm Road between 2 and 4pm.
‘Bring your clothes that you no longer want and return home with some new (used) clothes,’ said organiser Chritstina Cameron.
‘It’s a fun, social and relaxed community gathering that promotes sustainability.’
The fact that Australians are throwing out 6,000kg of clothing every ten minutes – which ends up in landfill – is one of the reasons Christina started the clothes swap meet-ups.
‘The goals of these events are to update our wardrobes without buying new clothes, reduce unwanted clothing going to landfill and to pass on clothes to someone else who will love them,’ she said.
‘There’s also something very satisfying about letting go of a piece of clothing you have loved and seeing someone else loving it and giving it a home.
‘Some women go home with clothes they may never have thought of wearing before and others are happy to have had a good wardrobe clean-out.
‘Please bring only clothes that are clean, in good condition (not musty) and wearable,’ Christina said.
‘Please no children’s clothes, swimwear or shoes.’
