It is estimated that 82 pounds of textile waste are produced per person in the US alone. That adds up to 25 billion pounds a year! We aim to drastically reduce this number through our womens fashion swap events in San Diego.
We want to help save the planet, and have some fun while doing it, so why not turn it into a party? We hope to reduce the amount of textile waste in our communities by simply exchanging clothes with other women. It's pretty simple, bring the clothes you no longer wear, and swap to get new ones in return. Are you ready San Diego?
We all know we are at a critical time concerning our planet. Considering nearly 100% of clothes are recyclable yet 85% of the clothes we use end up in landfills, we had to come up with a solution. If the average life of clothing is extended by just three months, it would reduce it's carbon footprint up to 10%! Let's swap!
I started learning about the impact we as consumers are having on our planet, shortly after becoming vegan in 2017. Since then I've been looking for ways to reduce the waste I produce and for ways to help other people do the same, but being someone that loves fashion I knew it would be something I didn't want to give up. After some brainstorming the concept of EAT SIP SWAP was born. I wanted something that brought women together, where we would not only save the earth but get something (stylish) in return and have a lot of fun!
For me it all began when I became conscious about my health. It was through that personal change I started becoming aware of the importance of having a healthy body and mind. I became passionate about fitness and helping others through becoming a personal trainer. As I started researching about personal health I discovered that we are not just individuals but part of a whole, and our planet was also in need of our help.
