Collaboration promotes sharing, community and sustainable living

We are thrilled to announce an exciting partnership with  Montreal car-sharing service Communauto!

Throughout the month of July, we’ll be driving around the city in sponsored Communauto vehicles to pick-up clothing from participants attending our July 28-29 event in the Place des Arts.

Thanks to Communauto, we’ll be able to provide more Montrealers with our home pick-up service, encouraging them to clean out their closets and make sustainable choices for our community and the environment. As Marco Viviani at Communauto says,  “Communauto and The SWAP Team are terrific examples of the sharing lifestyle – one that values access, unique experiences and simplicity over ownership.” We couldn’t agree more!

The SWAP Team and Communauto are Montreal-based businesses that are part of the worldwide Collaborative Consumption movement. Acclaimed in 2010 by Time Magazine as “One of the 10 ideas that will change the world,” Collaborative Consumption – or the “Sharing Revolution”–has exploded in popularity with its practical, network-enabled and earth-friendly approach to ownership.

The SWAP Team’s clothing pick-up service is available in select Montreal boroughs through July 22. The service is free with paid admission to Take Off Your Clothes. Tickets are $10 in advance or $12 at the door on the days of the event. To purchase tickets and request a clothing pick-up, click here.
