As you may well know Swap-O-Rama-Rama is a creative commons, non-profit that offers cities around the world assistance in producing Swap-O-Rama-Rama events in which communities are engaged in artist lead workshops, silk screening and sewing as they repurpose used clothing into new goods. The essence of the event is the transformation of consumers into creators through experiential play. The event, now in over 60 cities world wide, has recycled hundreds of thousands of pounds of clothing.
