Roosevelt Island Stop ‘N’ Swap, Saturday, November 8th, was a hit. Sponsor GrowNYC packed the Manhattan Park Theatre Club with eager recyclers.
GrowNYC organizes Swap ‘N’ Shop events to encourage reuse of gently used clothing and other goods. Roosevelt Islanders proved eager swappers.
Bring clean, reusable, portable items such as clothing, housewares, games, books, & toys that you no longer need, and take home something new-to-you, free! You don’t have to bring something to take something.GrowNYC / Stop ‘N’ Swap
The idea behind Stop ‘N’ Swap encourages people donate no longer needed stuff to others for reuse. There’s no charge, and it goes in both directions.
You give me a book, and I give you my lightly worn sweater. Both of us gain, and he environment wins as resources are stretched.
The line to enter Roosevelt Island Stop ‘N’ Swap extended out the door when I arrived at around 1:30. Neighbors carried bags of goods to contribute and eyed the roomful of donations waiting ahead.
