Sustainable Community Clothes Swap & Workshop!

Swapping your clothing promotes the reduction, reuse, and recycling of clothing!
This winter, you are invited to the first Sustainable Community Clothing Swap for June 2024, at "The Joinery" (111 Franklin Street, Adelaide CBD), a community connected by a love for nature, sustainable living, and a desire to lead positive change.
You will also be able to participate in a repair and upcycling workshop on the day, running from 11am-12:30pm and 1pm-2:30pm - find tickets on the Humanitix Event Page
NEVER BEEN TO A SWAP BEFORE? HERE'S HOW IT WORKS.
1. Simply gather a minimum of 5-10 pieces of clothing which are in good, wearable condition.
The more you bring along the better, if you want to bring more than 10 items for swapping, please feel welcome to do so!
2. Drop your donations into the Sustainable Clothing Co store between Monday the 17th of June and Friday the 21st of June between 10am-5pm (24A Charles Street, Adelaide City, just off Rundle Mall) and we will take your items to the venue the morning of the event.
If you can't make it into town, you are still welcome to bring your in on the morning of the swap to The Joinery as well.
3. On the day of the event (Saturday the 22nd of June) come to the Joinery and pick up some new-to-you clothing to take home!
The number of items you bring in is the same number of items you can take home.
TICKETING: Get your pre-paid $5 tickets on Humanitix, or pay with cash or card at the door on the day.
In the repair and upcycling workshop you can learn how to attach buttons, repair holes, darn, patch and hand-sew. Materials provided.

At the end of the swap, the majority of the remaining clothing will be donated onto supporting homelessness, ex-prisoners and women's shelters, along with Housing Choices SA (providing safe, secure and affordable rental housing) and the Anti Poverty Network (alliance of people affected and concerned by the effects of poverty and unemployment in Australia).
