Who doesn't love the idea of getting something for nothing and saving the planet? At a Swap Party, you bring along your unwanted items, exchange each for a token and browse what others have brought. Then, when the Swap is officially opened, you exchange your token for new items you'd like and take them home to enjoy! 

There are lots of ways to get swapping this National Recycling Week, 8th - 14th November.
