Rethink Your Wardrobe clothes swap

Thursday, 18 April 2019


Learn how to wear clothes better, maintain and grow your personal style and have less impact on our environment at this afternoon of sustainable fashion fun.

Rethink Your Wardrobe is an afternoon of thoughtful discussion on the impacts of Australia’s growing addiction to fast fashion and what alternatives exist to help lower the impact it has on our environment.

Join Wear Aware and a panel of experts in sustainable fashion and innovators to explore how we can tackle the problem of fast fashion, which has become an increasing amount of the 60,000 tonnes of unwanted items sent to landfill by charities each year at a cost of $13 million dollars.

Wear Aware are three Inner West women passionate about tackling overconsumption and dressing ‘sustainably stylish’. Their ethos is to encourage other to take their own journey to buy less, buy better and to shop inside their own wardrobes.

Following the panel discussion, guests are invited to stay for refreshments and join in the unique clothes swap experience.

Rethink Your Wardrobe is being held in partnership with Green Living Centre and is supported by Inner West Council.

When: Saturday, 4 May, 2019, 12 midday-3:30pm, cost: FREE

Register through Eventbrite

Bring up to three items of clothing you no longer wear or love anymore for the clothes swap, ensuring they are clean, undamaged, free of stains and ready for another person to love. During the swapping, facilitators will discover the tales of the loved items to help build a connection with the clothes so they’ll find a more permanent home in someone’s wardrobe.
