Event description

Description

Did you know that 6 tonnes of clothing are thrown out every 10 minutes? Let’s slow this down and have fun at the same time!

North Sydney Council invites residents to bring along clothes they value but no longer wear to exchange for those they will. Participants are encouraged to bring six garments or accessories to exchange using buttons as currency. Participants can take one item for each button they receive and there are swap volunteers to assist. This event is run as part of National Recycling Week. Drinks and nibbles will be provided on the night.

Clothes Swap rules – please read before registering

• We will only accept quality adult clothing (clean, well presented and undamaged with a long potential lifespan) which you would be happy to give to a friend. This year items will be refused if they do not meet our guidelines. The best items to swap are good quality garments that you once loved but are no longer your favourites or perhaps no longer fit you perfectly. This way, you’re giving them a second life with someone new who will treasure them

You can bring up to six items. If you have extra items, you’ll be asked to choose which ones you plan to swap

• We welcome all good quality women's clothing - women's accessories, daywear, eveningwear, and sportswear of all sizes

Items we won’t accept: swimmers, sleepwear, underwear or children's wear

• To make this swap extra memorable we encourage clothes which are locally made, designer, vintage, and fabulous, in one way or another

• 1 item = 1 swapping token. When you’re ready to leave just take your new goodies to the volunteers and they’ll check your items and sign you out

• If two of you see the same item and both of you want it we’ll do a coin toss and let fate decide

• Any left over clothing will be donated to the Red Cross
