Harrington Library is hosting a clothes swap party and anyone with unwanted items of clothing is welcome to attend.
MidCoast Council Libraries is joined by JR Richards, Sweet Pea and Mumma and The Green Laundry in organising the event on Friday, July 19, between 5.30pm to 7.30pm.
Bookings are essential and tickets cost $8 per person. RSVP by July 15.
With a focus on re-using, recycling and minimising the amount of waste generated across the Mid Coast, participants are invited to gather up to five pieces from their wardrobe that they are no longer wearing and in return they will earn up to five swap tokens to exchange for something a little different - it's a win win for your wallet and the environment.
"Clothes swap parties not only reduce waste but it's a great opportunity to swap out something of yours for great pre-loved pieces from someone else," Chris Jones, MidCoast Council Libraries manager said.
"These days we need to be more environmentally conscious and that can extend to the way we shop and the way we dispose of unwanted clothing."
Participants will also have the opportunity to attend workshops on how to mend and re-wear previously unwanted clothing.
Do you have socks that need darning, a favourite item that you don't wear anymore because it is stained, or it might have become a silverfish snack?
Bring it along and you can learn how to easily repair or alter a garment so you can start wearing it again.
This workshop will be presented by JR Richards and Sweet Pea and Mumma, while The Green Laundry will present a demonstration on how to care for your clothing.
Light refreshments will also be available. Bookings can be made at midcoastlibraries.com.au/events.
