Clothing swaps are a great way to counter the harm of "fast fashion." Organize a clothing swap at a campus, school, community center, place of worship, or in your neighborhood. Invite participants to bring clothing they no longer use to exchange for clothing they will use.

If the clothes swap doesn’t work for you, donate your gently-worn clothes to charities in need, recycle your worn-out clothes, and shop at thrift stores. Don’t forget your shoes and accessories from jewelry to eyeglasses and purses. A quick Internet search will yield multiple results for places to donate or swap your clothes and accessories.
