Women Against Waste
 

Our Mission:

 

Save the planet.

You can’t do everything; but you can do something.

We’re making it easier for women to share quality unwanted personal & household items; keeping stuff out of landfill & money in pockets.

Our Journey

In the beginning we wanted to help you re-home unwanted clothes + accessories, save money & reduce your impact on the planet by sharing items within your community.

But what started as a women’s clothes swap has become so much more.

Women Against Waste events make it easy for you to:
> swap & donate more than just clothes & accessories
> responsibly manage hard to recycle items
> repair items you’d love to use but can’t
> learn how to live consciously & waste free

… all while supporting local, national and international community groups and charities. Come join us. We’re doing it for the kids, each other & the planet.

 
 

How it Works

SWAP

You can bring a range of personal and household items to swap with other attendees. Each event has a different range of items you can bring, so check your event listing for specific details.

DONATE

All items which are left behind after each event are donated to specific charity and community groups locally, nationally and internationally - keeping them out of landfill.

Recycle

We know you have drawers filled with hard to recycle items. We’re able to collect some on the day; check your event for which ones.

MEND

Sometimes the only reason you’re not wearing a piece of clothing is because you can’t mend it. We have volunteers on hand to help you with a busted seam or hemming.

learn

It’s amazing what small changes we can all make at home to reduce our impact on the planet. We’ll help you learn what you can do easily at home.
