About the project Edit

The SWAP team is an non-profit organization established to support the Take Off Your Clothes and Déshabille-toi organization events. By bringing value to sharing as an antidote to overconsumption, the SWAP team helps raise awareness on human and natural resources involved in the creation, transport and bringing to market mass products.
Our mission:

1. Give good quality clothes to charities that will distribute them to the most needy
2. Fight against overconsumption
3. Encourage environmental and responsible consumption
4. Make recycled clothes from the textile industry’s scraps

30,264 exchanged clothes
37,312 pieces of clothing given to charity
67,576 clothes rescued from landfill sites
$605,280 saved through exchanging – and it continues!
