Swishing Clothes

Swishing - are you eco-chic?

Post in Climate conversation by Zoe Bedwell Cuthbertson
There will be a swishing stall at The Garve & District Community Development Company's AGM on Friday, 22 November 2019, 5 - 7pm, Garve Public Hall.

Come along to a delightful evening of swishing

Swishing - when someone donates a piece of clothing in exchange for another donated piece.

More and more we are hearing that the fashion industry is a key contributor to global pollution, people are becoming aware of fast fashion and the detrimental impact it has on our planet  Swishing is a community based initiative that believes in eco-chic, recycling and repurposing. 

TG&DDC AGM will be hosting a small swishing stall, we are asking community households to donate up to 2 items each of clean, good quality, well presented clothing (on a hanger or shoes in a box) - these can be dropped off at Garve Public Hall Monday - Friday with Uisdean.

This is a small event to introduce the idea so we don't want bags and bags of clothing, we ask you all to kindly note the clothing limit above.

Sadly, I won't be there on the evening of the AGM but will definitely be helping out prior to the event getting the clothes organised - can't wait!

Swishing costs no money and doesn’t cost the planet either. The philosophy is simple, bring something and take away something else. No holds barred.

So dig deep in your wardrobe, time to de-clutter and get swishing.  All remaining items will be given to charity.
