In the city, there are various events where people can exchange items that they no longer use but which are in a good state of repair. Other people may be able to give these items a new lease of life. This is the case with the municipal programmes "Renew your wardrobe" and "Revamp your toys", which are part of the 2012-2020 Waste Prevention Plan. This establishes strategies that foster a more efficient, rational use of resources, the reuse and recycling of objects and the prevention of waste generation.
“Revamp your wardrobe” is a second-hand clothing-exchange initiative aimed at fostering responsible consumerism and waste prevention. It is promoted by city organisations, associations and facilities, with the support of Barcelona City Council.
For toys given as Christmas presents, this initiative is a chance to reuse, share and consume in a more responsible way during the time of year when we consume most.
Revamping young people's clothes is an initiative for promoting responsible consumption, sustainability and waste prevention in the way clothes are used among young people aged between 12 and 35, through clothing exchanges.
