Project Description

Clothes swap… Simply more space in your wardrobe!

27th January 2019, La Chaux-de-Fonds, cave du rocher (rue du Rocher, 12)

What a success! Around 150 people took part in our clothe swap on this cold Sunday. Besides finding some nice second-hand clothes, they learned more about how much water does the production of a t-shirt require, how many tons of clothes are produced each year and how many kilometers a Tshirt makes from its production site to our cupboard. Clothes that did not find a new home were brought to second-hand shops in the region. Many people applauded this initiative and asked for a second edition.

This event was the third of the series “simply more” organised by UP in La Chaux-de-Fonds. Our goal is to show you how easy it is to live in a sustainable way and to support local people in the set up of concrete projects with the aim to make La Chaux-de-Fonds more sustainable.
