Fashion Takes Action will be hosting a clothing swap at the Canadian Circular Economy Summit, so be sure to bring clothing items you no longer reach for and swap them for new-to-you items!
How it works:
Bring up to 5 garments that are clean (i.e. free of odour, pet hair, stains or missing buttons etc). but gently worn and loved.
Note: Undergarments, active wear, swim wear and jewelry are not accepted. All other garments including hats, belts, shoes and scarves are welcome!
Drop off your clothes at registration on Day 1 of the Summit. Items will be checked and you will receive one ticket for each item that is accepted into the Swap.
These tickets then become your currency to use in the FTA Swap Shop.
Visit the FTA Swap Shop on Day 2 of the Summit, happening 10:30am-2:30pm in the Meeting Room Foyer to bring home some new-to-you treasures.
All clothing not claimed will be donated after the end of the event.
