Are we getting through this period of materialism? Where perfectly good unwanted items are thrown into landfill sites? Items that your next door neighbour would dearly love, that your friend’s daughter would make use of?

Clear out your unwanted items and bring them along. Swap your garden shears for a mason jar, your child’s trike for vintage lace, a floral dress for a box of plants… you can also exchange your knowledge and skills.

Come armed with your items, or the willingness to get involved in swapping. Exchange is the sustainable way forward. Swap It!
