Swap 'Til You Drop! came about in 2014 by Jessica Teal after attending a swap at Attic Studios. It was a great concept and I wanted to continue the idea on a regular basis. It started to gain momentum the more and more swaps that happened and has now flourished into it's own little life... Swap 'Til You Drop! collaborates with The HOME BKK and Soledad Designs LLC to provide a fun space with food and drink to swap as well as a REVAMP service to repair, restyle, recycle and reignite your old and newfound wardrobe. The swap has also had it’s time in Yangon and will also be running throughout the year of 2018 in Kathmandu, Nepal. Let this page be a place where we can coordinate future swaps, arrange for swap meetings for public and private events, or if you want to share some signature items to swap. Let's aim to be better to the environment by reusing and revamping our clothes rather than buy more and more (although sometimes we can't help but shop, I know!)

What can be done to improve our favorite city? Can we cool down Bangkok and clear some pollution? Can we create a new forest in our urban environment? Join us to find the answer, and better yet, let's plant a forest together, one tree at a time! The plan is to plant an entire, vertical forest during this raining season (June to November), together, in Bangkok! In this first Workshop, we'll see how to find and prepare the trees we need to make Bangkok a better place to live in! We'll also take a look at different spots where we can do that: Bangkok's unfinished buildings!

What can you do about it, whether you have a small space at home or a larger area in your garden? Learn how easy and fun it is to recycle your fruit and vegetable scraps, leaves, newspaper, coffee grounds, plant cutting--Ps etc into Black Gold!
