COOLmob Clothes Swap Party!
THURSDAY 27 AUG 2020 | 6:00PM - 8PM
We're producing and buying an unsustainable amount of fashion. The way we design, produce, and use clothes have large scale negative environmental and social impacts. The textiles system operates in an almost completely linear way: large amounts of non-renewable resources are extracted to produce clothes that are often used for only a short time, after which the materials are mostly sent to landfill or incinerated.
That's why we’re hosting a Clothes swap party! Join us for a fun and thrifty evening where you can update your wardrobe, save money and engage in the secondhand fashion revolution!
The way it works:
- Choose up to 3 pieces of clothing or shoes you no longer love. We will only be accepting quality items, anything you'd happily pass onto a friend - in good condition, unstained and functional
- Check your items in from 6pm - 6.30pm. We'll be using a points system to grade the items, 3 points for designer, 2 points for vintage and 1 point for all other good quality items
- Grab a drink and bite to eat whilst you wait for us to set up shop
- Swapping begins at 7.15pm
We're asking for a gold coin donation to participate, with all proceeds going to COOLmob to enable more sustainable living workshops and events. Any clothing remaining at the end of the swap will be donated to local secondhand stores.
Keen to help out?
We're looking for some fashion savvy volunteers to help grade the clothing, as well as helpers to sort the items, set up shop and help hand out and collect tokens. Email Lou if this sounds like the job for you!
