The Clothing Exchange team were very excited to be hosting and clothes swapping event with ‘1 million women’- a fantastic new initiative designed to bring women together to reduce Australia’s footprint and share stories about making the world a better place. Well, swapping was a great place to start and the 81 happy attendees left the swap with their arms filled with ‘new’ clothes. Any leftover garments were donated to ‘Fitted for Work’ a wonderful little Melbourne initiative where corporate clothes are given to women re-entering the workforce to give them a confidence boost and the professional wardrobe that will see them through their working week.
To find sign up to be one of the ‘1 million women’ and hear about their wonderful networking events, check out their website for some great ideas about being green and get in touch with like-minded ladies go to http://www.1millionwomen.com.au/
