Bed Stuy Clothes Swap

Bed-Stuy Create & Connect Fund Recipient

Bed Stuy Clothes Swap is a community based safety net for Bed-Stuy residents. We provide clothing alternatives that move against the grain of capitalistic systems that unevenly take from and kill our community. As a mindful movement that centers on the sustainable wellbeing of people of color, we respond to the localized impacts of hyper-consumerism, fast fashion, gentrification and lack of equitable clothing alternatives in Bed Stuy. Our praxis is a blend of communal based sharing, exchanging and donating habits.
