Event description

Description

DID YOU KNOW THAT THE AVERAGE NORTH AMERICAN CONTRIBUTES 80 LBS OF TEXTILES TO LANDFILL EACH YEAR? AND THAT 60% OF APPAREL ENDS UP INCINERATED OR IN LANDFILL WITHIN THE FIRST YEAR OF ITS LIFE?? LET'S WORK TOGETHER TO CLOSE THE LOOP ON FASHION & COME TO OUR SWAP AND SOCIAL!

Surely there are items in your closet you’re ready to let go of. Why not add some new pieces to your wardrobe without breaking the bank! Looking to start shopping sustainably but don’t know how? Well then you're in luck! Join us Friday September 22nd for our SWAP & SOCIAL! Swap your unwanted items with our community, mingle with like-minded people and have a beverage or two!!

How Does It Work?

  1. Find quality and stylish items in your closet that you’re ready to part with. Be sure to check they are in good condition (not stained or torn), washed (no pet hair or odours) and presentable (creases ok, but not completely wrinkled) as our guests will want to see them at their best advantage for the swap.

  2. Clothing drop off in advance is preferred on either Tuesday September 19th at 215 Spadina Ave. 4th floor or Thursday September 21st at 720 Bathurst St. ground floor (both are Centre for Social Innovation locations). Drop offs must be between 10:00am-2:30pm for both days. Please ask for Fashion Takes Action when you arrive! The advantage to those who drop off in advance is you will not have to wait in line at the door!

  3. Purchase your ticket here on eventbrite ($5 in advance), otherwise it is $10 at the door. No need to print your ticket as we will have a guest list with your name on it.

  4. Come to 192 Spadina Ave on Friday September 22nd anytime between 5-9pm ready for a super fun evening!


Swap Rules

  1. Limit of 20 items max however all extra and/or unswapped items will be donated to a charity recycler. We will gladly accept odds and ends that you're looking to recycle but don’t know how (i.e underwear, socks, old linens etc).

  2. Each item of clothing accepted into the swap gets you 1 token to use toward a new-to-you item.

  3. Please stick only to clothing, bags, hats, scarves, belts and shoes. We will NOT accept jewellery or hair accessories. Swimwear, yoga/workout wear and lingerie while also NOT accepted into the swap, can be brought in for us to donate to the charity reuse/recycler.

  4. We will accept your swappables the day of the event, however you will have to wait in line for us to go through and check all items (in our experience not all items will make it to the swap). To avoid this line, we recommend you drop your items off to us during the provided dates/times.

  5. No kids clothing. Only adult sizing. Menswear is welcome!

  6. We have the right to refuse any item.

  7. All tokens are non refundable! Try and use them all, but you can feel good knowing all leftover items are being recycled.

  8. If you run out of tokens you can purchase 2 for $5!

Other Details

  1. Drinks (wine & beer) will be available for $5 each.

  2. Change room and mirror will be provided to try on items.
