I read an article in The New York Times today about GrowNYC’s “Stop N Swap,” a free event “intended to promote recycling.” Items include clothes, books, electronics, etc. You can come and leave with as much as you want and the price tag for everything is zero.

“Trying to get people to think of their stuff as not junk, but something of value that could be useful to other people — then you get people thinking about maybe not buying things, maybe getting something repaired, reducing consumerism and, as a result, reducing their impact on the environment one item at a time.”

As I scanned the rest of the paper, I imagined how beneficial it would be if this “cleaning season” concept could be applied to some of “the looks that lingered from fashion week.”
