Winter is coming (back) !
Following the success of the 1st edition of the free market, we are pleased to announce the organisation of a 2nd one!
The social committee is organizing a second-hand clothes free-market
In the meeting room of the 4th floor
Thursday Nov. 3 after noon & Friday Nov. 4 all day
Soft drinks will be provided for shoppers to stay hydrated!
Bring your extra-clothes bags and place them in pile following the size indications set in the room. If you see some beautiful pieces that would look gorgeous on you, then you are welcome to try them on and go back home with them!
All adult sizes are accepted!
Any Genopode member can attend. It is not mandatory to bring piles of clothes to take part to the exchange.
The market will close on Saturday morning 9:30 A.M. All clothes that were not adopted by new humans by then should be taken back or we will bring them to the nearest clothes collection point.
By organizing such event, the social committee wishes to bring the Génopode members’ attention to the fact that buying pre-owned clothes allows us to add items to our wardrobe without using additional resources in the manufacturing process.
The fashion industry is responsible for 8-10% of global carbon emissions, uses massive amounts of water, and exploits workers and animals worldwide. Buying clothes that already exist slows down the fast fashion cycle and the relentless demands on low-paid workers in the supply chain.
