Greenfest Philly Clothing Swap
Philly Swap at Greenfest: Clean out your closets and bring your clothing, accessories, toys, books and more! Philly Swap and Greenfest have teamed up to bring you a community swap that will be on-site at this year's event. Items collected will include: gently used and clean clothing (men, women, children, baby), toys, and books.
How it works? Bring your items to Greenfest to receive free entry to the swap area or contribute a $5 financial donation (receive a Philly Swap bag for your $5 or more contribution while supplies last). Upon entry of the swap, you are free to roam and take what you'd like. We just ask that you stay mindful of others and leave enough for everyone to discover a good find.
About Philly Swap: What started as a citywide clothing swap, Philly Swap has since inspired the swapping of all things! From exchanging ideas and supporting collaborative projects in communities, to promoting recycling and up-cycling of textiles, crafts, clothing, Philly Swap is dedicated to the act of sharing resources, skills, and imagination. We host workshops, demonstrations, and other events to continue the spirit of swapping and creative reuse in neighborhoods throughout the Philadelphia area.
