About the Event
About the Event
This Toy Swap Event is not just about swapping toys – it's an opportunity for kids to discover the power of sustainability and the value of reusing. By participating, you'll help reduce our environmental footprint and contribute to the reduction of landfill waste.
The Inner West Sustainable Markets also takes place on the same day
What to expect:
- Bring along any toys, games, and books as long as they are in working condition for reuse. Please check each item and have them clean prior to the day.
- Learn about the importance of sustainability and reusing items.
- Connect with like-minded individuals who care about our community and environment.
- Have fun while making a positive impact!
Simple rules to follow:
- Bring some toys or books to swap that should not be more than a bagful
- Ask yourself: Is this item good enough for my friend or another kid?
- Due to safety concerns, you must check that all battery-operated items (toys, games and books) are in working condition and replace their batteries when necessary. Battery-operated toys should have battery cases secured by screws or other means to prevent children from prying them open.
- We may refuse any items that are not in the desired condition, and you must remove them from the premises.
Don't miss this chance to connect, learn, and contribute. Let's make a difference together!
