Come one, come all!

Join us on the 10th of December for “The Great Clothes Swap”. Bring along at least 5 items (the more the merrier!) for exchange. Please ensure all clothes donations are washed, ironed, and in good condition. The clothes left over at the end will be donated to the 4R project, which supports the women and families that Shakti (our parent body) assists.

So... What's a clothes swap?

Bring your clothes, shoes and accessories for exchange and we'll sort them for easy finding later on. We'll record how many items you bring, and the amount you bring is the limit you can take. Once we've sorted the clothes, the fun begins! We'll give you a while to have a search through and find your new wardrobe. At the end of the night, we'll collect the leftover clothes to donate to the 4R project.

We're also looking for clothing racks, hangers and mirrors to use on the night. If you are able to help with this please email Brittany at sustinnoworx@shakti.org.nz.

As we are a social enterprise we welcome donations. Please donate online to 01-0183-0244138-03 or donate with cash at the door.

4R project volunteer applications welcome. To inquire please email sustinnoworx@shakti.org.nz

See you there!

About us:
Based on the four principles of reducing, reusing, recycling and reinventing, the 4R project developed by Sustinnoworx aims to `upcycle’ donated clothing, to make it wearable either the way they are or to modify them to create new designs. The project will be delivered through an Op-shop that will be based in the West Auckland suburb of Ranui. The Op-shop will sell second hand the clothes at a discounted price and some of it will be re-donated to those who need them most.

The Op-Shop will also have a workspace where women will be taught sewing and who will also work on the some of the donated clothes. Those trained in sewing will also create cloth bags which will be sold in the Op-shop, with the intent of reducing the use of bags made of un-recyclable materials. The proceeds from the sale of these bags and clothes will be used to support the students who are learning as well as to the families that Shakti (the parent body of Sustinnoworx) supports.

Shakti is a national not-for-profit community organisation and refuge that has been working servicing New Zealand’s vulnerable ethnic immigrant communities. Sustinnoworx is the sustainable development wing of Shakti that operates through NZQA accredited organisation Setac Ltd.

Sustinnoworx delivers an NZQA Level 1 programme Certificate in Community Engagement & Employment Skills, a driving school, an Incubator Project (developing and mentoring talent and skills towards entrepreneurship) and the 4R Project. Besides contributing to reduction to landfill and being eco-friendly the other objective is to enable jobs and occupations for vulnerable women who may otherwise not be able to find jobs.
