The Clothing Exchange celebrating 6 years in Melbourne

Posted in Movements by JulietteA on May 20th, 2011

It wasn’t long ago that spending an evening mid week swapping clothes in a laneway bar was thought as totally out of the ordinary, perhaps even strange. 6 years later The Clothing Exchange is now part of the fabric of our sustainable city having challenged the status quo of how Melbournians acquire ‘new’ clothing. Thousands of swappers have enjoyed our events, which can now be enjoyed in cities across Australia. On June 1st we will be celebrating the last 6 years of sustainable progress by holding our Birthday Swap at Loop Bar in Melbourne. Bring along up to 6 items of clothing that you value but no longer wear to swap for ones that you will. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased here.

Seeking support for Pants to Poverty campaign

Posted in Seeking by Ferne Edwards on June 18th, 2009

Please see message below.

I am involved in a new campaign to have the chemical endosulphane present in pesticides used in the cultivation of cotton banned for its negative human and environmental side effects. The campaign is the brainchild of a UK group called Pants to Poverty. I am helping them to launch here in Australia.

I was wondering whether you would have any good ideas as to which groups would be good to approach. Also would you know of anyone working on these kinds of issues here in Melbourne?

Let me know,
