Event description

Description

The fashion industry has some alarming secrets. Did you know…


* 80 billion pieces of clothing are produced globally every year.


* Approximately 7,000 litres of water are needed to produce one pair of jeans (the amount of water one individual drinks in 5-6 years).


* The wages of workers in garment factories can be as low as US$1 a day.


And what is most surprising to me is that only 10% of the clothes people donate to thrift stores or charities get sold, the rest goes to landfill.


We would like to help break the cycle of needlessly purchasing and donating clothing in a small way at Reimagine Co. Now that the weather is changing and we are hoping to get into less bulky clothing, we would like to hold a 2nd clothing swap for spring/summer attire!


Here is how it works: (please read carefully)


* The swap itself will take place on Saturday, April 13th from 12:30-2pm at Reimagine Co, 211 King St (the old Novack’s building). Arrive on time to make sure that you have an opportunity to grab the best clothes!

* You MUST drop your clothes off between 9:30am-11:30 am on Saturday, April 13th. We had some late drop-offs last swap which threw the whole event off schedule, so unfortunately we can not accommodate drop offs at any other times.

* All clothing, shoes and accessories will be accepted. Last swap we had 90% women’s clothing, however we had some kids and mens clothes as well and we are happy to have them all again this time!

*please note this is not an alternative to a thrift store drop-off. This only works if you bring your best clothes! The stuff you would trade with your sister or friends :) If you do not plan on attending the swap, please do not drop off clothes.


Any clothing that is left over after the swap will be distributed to those in need by 519pursuit.


Any questions? Please let us know :)


* If you are interested in volunteering or have and clothing racks to lend out please let us know. Thank you
