A great way to reduce fashion waste, and celebrate style and individuality.

I was out riding my bike on Sunday around the Opera House when I noticed a sign that said "Clothes Swap Here".

I immediately had to ride over and have a look at what was going on. What a novel idea. I couldn't wait to find out more about it when I got home.

Swapping with The Clothing Exchange can be done both online and at any of the events held around the country.

How does it work? It's really simple. You exchange clothing you no longer want for those you do.



At the Clothing Exchange, they believe that looking good, shouldn't cost the earth.

Unfortunately, manufacturing and fashion industry practices have damaged both the environment and the lives of the clothing industry workers.

Every time you are purchasing something through The Clothing Exchange network, you are choosing to keep garments out of landfill for longer and reducing the damaging effects of fast fashion, out of control consumerism, one garment at a time.



Swapping is sharing. Sharing is social and more of our social lives are spent online.

To swap online you need to register. Once registered, you can upload your wardrobe, items you value but no longer want.

No money exchanges hands. Instead you are given Buttons as tokens. When selling, you assign a number of buttons, between 1 and 5 to the item.
There is a fee to list an item. So, it's a little bit like eBay but cheaper. An insertion fee of $1 and then there is a fee of $5 to cover costs, so that the online registry can make a profit and become bigger and better.

There is an expectation if you are selling, that all items are packaged in a certain way. Of course, there is no checking system, but being charged on your credit card ensures that some kind of quality control is taking place.

Don't be put off if stock is a little low. Sometimes, there are days when that happens.

Should you wish to go to a Clothing Exchange event, the next one is in Federation Square in Melbourne.
At least that way you can look, feel and try on the clothes. It cost $25 to purchase a ticket to the event.

Happy clothes swapping.
