Swap Till You Drop - It's Fun Free And Green
At a Swap Party you bring along your unwanted items, exchange each for a token, browse what others have brought, then when the Swap is officially opened, exchange your token for new items. It's fun free and green. And you don't need to pay anything (although some community groups charge an entry fee as a fund raiser).
Check out RecyclingWeek.PlanetArk.org to find a Big Aussie Swap Party near you. There are parties happening all over the country.
Big Aussie School Swap
Parents, students and teachers can also download a special guide for hosting a Swap Party at school. A Big Aussie School Swap, timed for the end of the year, is perfect way for kids and parents to exchange books, sports equipment and clothes they no longer fit or need for ones they do.
By charging a small entry fee, it can also be used to raise money for the school or for another cause. Everything you need to host a School Swap is at RecyclingWeek.PlanetArk.org/kids-teachers/schoolswap.cfm
