Description of the event: 

The Clothes Swapping project was held for the first time in our Section (ESN Politecnico Milano) in June 2019. The main objective of the project is to raise awareness of environmental sustainability issues in full ESN style, and social.

The double purpose of Clothes Swapping is in fact to counteract the enormous impact that waste in the clothing industry has on the planet and on workers, creating at the same time a moment of leisure and aggregation among the entire ESN population.

The idea is that Erasmus students wishing to have "new" clothes could find an alternative to buying clothes in normal fast-fashion stores. Such as? Getting rid of their old clothes, and exchanging them with those of others!
