About this Event
Threading Change is an ambitious and fully youth-led international organization. We need industries to step up, polluters to pay up, and all hands on deck.
We are hosting another clothing swap for all genders and bodies in Toronto!
Swapping instead of buying new is a great way to exercise sustainable practices in your wardrobe. Did you know that only 1% of textiles around the world are recycled properly? Keep your old clothes out of the landfill, and give them a new life by swapping and trading. As the saying goes, one person's trash is another person's treasure!
Learn more about What Really Happens to Donated Clothes?-And what can we do with them instead on our blog!
Attendees are asked to bring 1-20 items each to swap. You will be given a ticket for every item you bring in. However many items you bring, that's how many you can take.
Please note: No socks, swimsuits, and underwear at the swap. Jewelry can be swapped if it has been cleaned. Kids' clothing are also welcomed.
Swimsuits and bras can be swapped if they have never been worn, ideally with the tag still attached.
*Change rooms will be limited*
Come by to meet the Threading Change community and bring your pre-loved items to share and swap!
The 6F’s: a Feminist, Fossil-Fuel Free Fashion Future.
Threading Change is a youth-led, justice-oriented global organization created to address the systemic injustices and inequities that persist in the global fashion industry today.
We address the fashion industry holistically, which includes everything from the way we communicate sustainable fashion to how invite global communities affected by the industry at the table. Fashion can be a hugely wasteful industry, using excessive resources like water and textiles and over-producing clothes through trends.
George Chuvalo Neighbourhood Centre is on the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishinaabe, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. Tkaronto (Toronto) is covered by Treaty 13 signed with the Mississaugas of the Credit, and the Williams Treaties signed with multiple Mississaugas and Chippewa bands. Today, the meeting place of so called Toronto is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work and host this event in this territory.
