World Swap Day
The entire mission of World Swap Day is to raise awareness for swapping as the new shopping, by hosting more than 100 events around the world during the month of January — clothing swaps, food swaps, book swaps, kids’ gear swaps, beauty swaps, video game swaps, seed swaps, teacher supply swaps, craft swaps, you name it — listed on our Events.Swap.com directory.
Here are 3 easy ways to participate in World Swap Day:
1. Host or attend a public swap event.
Locate one near you by browsing our Swap Events directory, or list yours if you’re already hosting one! An automatic email goes out to all Swap.com members each time a new local swap event is posted in their state.
2. Host a swap at home with your friends. It’s easy and fun, promise! If you’ve never hosted or attended a swap before, we’ve got you covered — check out our tips for hosting a Swap @ Home. Just check out how much fun our friend Sarah in Brooklyn had hosting her first clothing swap for a handful of friends last weekend for more encouragement.
3. Swap your items online, from the privacy of home!
Join in on the World Swap Day fun by using our new, free, worldwide Swap.com Market. Every listing for an item you have to swap (between now and January 28th) is an entry into our List Your Way to $1K Giveaway celebrating #SwapDay. Two lucky Swap.com members with the best Haves — one guy and one gal, as picked by our panel of expert swappers — will each receive $1,000 to put toward getting what they’ve always wanted!
If you’re hosting an event, want to blog about World Swap Day, or just spread the word, please feel free to use the banners, flyers, and Eventbrite images below (just grab the code below each image).
