Clothes swap Bergen

Last Sunday, one of our environmental program managers spent the day with @Clothes Swap Bergen and their volunteers for an event full of positive attitudes and clothes to swap! Here is her experience of the day:

“The sun was shy but the mood was all to the top! We started the day by unpacking all the clothes that @ Norge Gir donated as a base for the event. The wonderful volunteers folded nicely and displayed pants, jeans, pullovers, T-shirts, and dresses all over the room. Glitters, colors, and style were all invited to the party!

After that, the real fun began with the many visitors who came to swap swap swap all day long and have a little chat with us. Our guests were invited to swap a maximum of 10 items during the day but Norge Gir gladly accepted all the unwanted clothes, shoes, and bags.

I guess we all had fun and it was a win for everyone: the visitors cleaned their closet and brought back nice pieces home, and all together, we succeeded in recycling 150kg of clothes!!

So thank you, everyone, for the planet, probably thank you too, and Special Big-Up to Marjolein from the Clothes swap event and all the joyful volunteers!”
