As someone who has been in the ethical fashion realm for a few years now, I have heard all the reasons why shopping responsibly is hard: It's too expensive, it’s not my style, it’s hard to find (OK, I had these problems, too, before I started my own fashion company, IMBY, to make it easier!), the list can go on and on. So what if I said one of the most responsible ways to shop was free and allowed you to chill with your friends? Enter the clothing swap.
Clothing swaps are becoming increasingly popular, and for a good reason. They provide a social opportunity to spruce up your closet without shelling out a penny and give clothes a second life so they don't end up in the landfill. Everyone wins.
