General Description

Outdoor gear takes up a lot of storage space and eventually may get thrown away. Not only is used gear easier on the budget, but it’s also better for the environment (reducing impact by reusing old materials). An outdoor gear swap provides an opportunity for residents to leave their unwanted outdoor gear and take as many items as they wish - for free. All gear left over after the event will be donated to a local reuse retailer. Volunteers will assist with greeting residents, weighing gear brought in, and keeping swap area organized.
