Since 2012, over 2,000 families have attended Little Swappies events and have helped to keep over 50,000 items out of landfills by passing along their like-new kids clothing, books, and toys to others in their communities, while also exchanging them for items that are useful. Our Little Swappies’ community has grown by showing how fun and easy it can be to reduce, reuse, and recycle.
This model can be translated to adult events and last week Little Swappies launched a brand-new event series called Mama Swappies. Held at a luxurious private residence in Tribeca, the event included a mix of media and professional women who came together to share their designer clothing with others and while shopping for themselves for free! Everything that was not exchanged went to our charity partner, Henry Street Settlement – making it very easy and fun for guests to give their clothes a wonderful new home.
Prior to the swap, attendees were able to casually network and chat as they met with brands such as Dryel, Organic Gemini, Suburban Jungle Realty Group, Arianna Skincare, Angela’s Sugar Fix, Priv, Quad Jobs, Be Mixed, and Dutch’s Spirits.
