RAQUEL Vintage Swap Meet: A Virtual Networking Event & Workshop

Olivia Vanessa Baumgart May 2, 2021

The purpose of the Swap Meet, Virtual Networking Event & Workshop is to educate and connect like minded individuals with the common objective of sustainable development and climate action. Our aim is to put the idea in motion that there is enough fabric in circulation already that we do not need to produce new garments from raw materials. We would also talk about our company and how we turn post consumer waste into brand new garments and divert clothing from the landfill and reduce energy usage, carbon emissions and greenhouse gases and we talk about how anyone can participate and do this themselves. We demonstrate some of our ideas during this virtual swap meet by encouraging people to trade & barter their items no longer loved or fostered. People are separated into break out rooms by their sizes (small, medium, large 1x) and after they introduce themselves to each other and chat amongst themselves, they showcase their vintage. There will be a downloadable workbook companion for the event where they can write each individuals information and inadvertently create a address book of connections, theirs to keep forever.
