Description

Darebin's award-winning low-waste cafe, Moon Rabbit, is launching a Bulk Foods Collective and is celebrating with a zero-waste party, free babyccinos and a day full of activities.

Moon Rabbit Bulk Foods Collective will offer affordable, everyday pantry items in bulk - doing our bit to achieve a plastic-free Darebin and create a more sustainable community. Buy only what you need, BYO containers and avoid unnecessary packaging.

Discounts are available for Collective members, concession-card holders and pensioners.

The launch party will include:

⭐The debut of the community led bulk buy shop – so bring your containers!
⭐A zero-waste brunch menu and free babyccinos at Moon Rabbit
⭐Workshops on how to properly store and set up a zero-waste pantry
A kid’s clothing swap for all genders and sizes 0 – 13 years old
⭐ A fundraising raffle for the CFA
⭐ Market stalls featuring local initiatives, such as Colourful Collective, that are re-imagining a product's life cycle

Sign up to be a member at the launch party and get 50% off your annual membership fee and a special cloth bread bag to buy fresh Northcote Bakery loaves.

Kids' clothing swap:

It’s like a big op shop where no money changes hands – the greenest and most environmentally friendly way to update your kids' wardrobes and find new homes for the clothes they've outgrown.

How it works:
1. Gather unwanted kids' clothes, size 0-13 years old, that are clean, undamaged (no rips, holes or stains) and in good condition. (A good rule to remember: if you wouldn't give it to a friend, don't bring it to the swap.) Toys and shoes will not be accepted.

2. Sort and bag the clothes by size.

3. Drop off your bags at Bridge Darebin in Preston or Thornbury (addresses below) on Thursday 20 and Friday 21 February. Volunteers will arrange all clothing donations and get them ready for the swap.

4. Attend the swap on Saturday 22 February any time from 9.30am to 2pm to 'shop'; clothes will be arranged by size and free for anyone to take. All remaining items will be dropped off at the local op shop at the end of the day.

Even if you don't have items to donate, you can still come along to 'shop' and give the clothes a new home.
