The Central Cariboo Arts Centre is gearing up for a Waste Wise Clothing Swap and Film Fest on Friday, Oct. 23 in celebration of Waste Reduction Week.
The event will be held from 4 to 9 p.m. at the arts centre next to Williams Lake city hall.
Organizer Brianna van de Wijngaard says that when people arrive they will give their donation of gently used clothing and shoes to a CCCS team member who will set everything up and then everyone starts “shopping” at the same time.
The kids go first from 5 to 5:30 p.m, then the adults shop.
There will be change stations set up for people to try on clothes in private.
In-between she says there will be opportunities for watching films and visiting.
People are asked to bring along reusable bags or boxes to take home their findings.
Any left over clothing will be donated to local organizations.
