Event Details

We are excited to announce the second Eco Clothes Swap Party, run by volunteer members of your local Extinction Rebellion community! All welcome!

Let’s come together & reduce fast fashion’s effect on the environment by sharing our clothes, listening to some great local music, enjoying delicious vegan eats and getting inspired by the beautiful, strong voices and spirit of our environmentally minded community.

This year, in light of the fires that devastated so many lives and ecosystems around the country, we will be using this event as an opportunity to fundraise for some important groups for climate action and the protection and recovery of all life on the planet.

Donations will be collected upon arrival and distributed to the following organisations:
Seed Indigenous Youth Climate Network: Seed is Australia’s first Indigenous youth climate network building a movement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people for climate justice.

National Indigenous Fire Network: Firesticks Alliance Indigenous Corporation is an Indigenous led network and aims to re-invigorate the use of cultural burning by facilitating cultural learning pathways to fire and land management.

Suggested donation amount is $10, but any amount you are willing and able to give will be greatly appreciated. Donations are highly encouraged but non-compulsory. We don’t want money to hinder anyone’s participation in this joyous free community event.

Last year we had these awesome people donate their time for the event:
Food stalls by Mi & Tea & Koshari Korner
Music performances by Noisey Neighbour, Little Green & ELKI
Speech by Jenny Leong MP for Newtown
Yarn circle and Acknowledgement of Country by Warren Roberts for YARN Australia
Repairs & Repurposing stall by Boomerang Bags
Info Stall by School Strike for Climate
Screen-printing, Meditations, Crochet, Speeches and Info Stall by Extinction Rebellion

So who will be joining us this year??
