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.
“Renew your wardrobe ” is a second-hand clothing exchange campaign to foster responsible consumerism and waste prevention. It is promoted by city organisations, associations and facilities, with the support of Barcelona City Council. Barcelona.
