Clothing Swap

Join the Dave Sutliff-Atias for City Council campaign to swap clothes you don’t use for some new-to-you threads!

Have clothes or shoes you don’t wear anymore?  Don’t throw them away, swap them for clothes you can use.  Bring clean clothes, shoes, sheets, etc. that can’t be used anymore, we’ll recycle the textiles!

Have clothes you just want to get rid of?  Give us a call, text or e-mail and we’ll come get them for the clothes swap.  Let’s keep this stuff out of the landfill!

[Due to the overwhelming success of our previous events, we have to limit this to City of Rochester residents only.  Thank you for your understanding.]A black and white line drawing of swapping shirts

Contributing kids’ clothes and shoes is a great way for the community to make sure our children are taken care of.  Give us what you have and we’ll make sure it gets into the hands of those who can use it.

“The average American throws away about 65 pounds of clothing per year, and along with other textiles that get tossed, like sheets and bedding, the total comes out to 14.3 million tons of textile waste per year. That’s almost 6 percent of all municipal waste. While some of those textiles get recovered, most of it remains in the landfill, posing a variety of problems.”

AND

”Growing cotton, the most-used fabric in fashion, requires water & agricultural chemicals. While cotton is grown on just 2.4% of the world’s cropland, it accounts for 24% and 11% of global sales of insecticides and pesticides, respectively, according to the World Wildlife Fund.”
