In the old days, swapping clothes (or ‘hand-me-downs’) was something you tried to hide – both giving and receiving them. Now, with green living mainstream, recycled clothing has become a fashion statement and clothing swap events are all the rage. The makers of Green Works® natural cleaners are teaming up with Clothing Swap, Inc®, the leader in hosting clothing recycling and swapping events, to encourage clothing swaps by providing information on for individuals interested in hosting their own “mini” clothing swap with their friends and families in the comfort of their own home. With a focus on creating an eco-friendly environment, over the next 12 months Green Works will also sponsor 10 in-city clothing swap events conducted by Clothing Swap, Inc. To help women refresh their wardrobes across the country, the greener way, clothing swap events will take place in major markets including Los Angeles, Chicago and Denver. In addition, for the September back to school shopping season Green Works and Clothing Swap will host a family swap event in New York to give parents and children an opportunity to gear up for the fall season. From clothes to shoes and accessories, attendees will be able to swap their way to a new wardrobe without breaking the bank. Green Works is partnering with Clothing Swap Inc. as part of its launch of Green Works™ Natural Laundry Detergent and Green Works™ Natural Laundry Stain Remover. “We’re delighted to help moms shop responsibly for the environment and their wallets,” said Emmy Berlind, marketing manager, Green Works natural cleaners. “We look forward to partnering with Clothing Swap, Inc. to make that happen.”
