Nature lovers invited to ’Swap your Style’

ENVIRONMENTALLY conscious women who love a bargain are invited to the first ‘Swap your Style’ event at House of Sadaqa in Revesby this Saturday.

Inspired by founder of eco.styles, Nina Gbor, clothes-swap style is making headway across Sydney and helping to promote sustainable fashion.
Thanks to a collaboration between the community and charities, such as House of Sadaqa, women will be able to browse the range of new, heavily discounted designer wear or ‘swap your style’ with the pre-loved range and take home others’ fab garments in exchange.
Attendees are welcome to submit up to five items of clothing or accessories to add to the swap collection pool, with clothing able to be dropped off anytime before this Saturday, March 2, in the House of Sadaqa charity bins at 6/60 Marigold Street, Revesby.
Guest speakers at the event include Greens senator Mehreen Faruqi and Bankstown Greens’ Natalie Hana who will discuss how charities are invaluable in the community and how everyone can make a difference living more sustainably
Aboriginal artist Bianca Caldwell will also share her story about culture, sustainable art and workshops available, while Muslim charity MATW Foundation will have stalls and collect donations, along with the Palestinian Justice Movement who will outline upcoming campaigns.
’Swap you Style’ organiser Suzy Amira said the event was a great opportunity for women to become part of the ‘circular economy’ through extending the life of second-hand clothing and reducing our carbon footprint.
“UN Climate Change states that annually 1.2 billion tonnes of greenhouse gases are emitted from textiles production; this doesn’t include how much clothing is thrown out and destined for landfill everyday,” she said.
“Everyone’s invited to this event which is one from 2-4pm; it will be a fun, social way to connect with others and a build a sense of community around sustainable living.”
