WHAT: Free Stop ‘N’ Swap Community Reuse Event
WHEN: Sunday, January 10, 11am–2pm
WHERE: Bay Ridge Jewish Center– 405 81st St, Bay Ridge, Brooklyn
Stop ‘N’ Swaps have developed a regular following among thrifty and environmentally conscious New Yorkers. In response to increasing demand for the events, GrowNYC has set a goal of hosting one Stop ‘N’ Swap in each of the city’s 59 community districts each year. “Brooklyn communities are some of the most enthusiastic participants in Stop ‘N’ Swaps. We look forward to seeing familiar faces at the event, as well as first-timers experiencing the joy of seeing their goods go to new homes, or taking home useful items at no cost,” said David Hurd, the Director of GrowNYC’s Office of Recycling Outreach and Education.
“Everyone knows New Yorkers have the coolest stuff! And you can find it at Stop ‘N’ Swap!” said GrowNYC Executive Director Marcel Van Ooyen. “Stop ‘N’ Swaps bring neighbors together and reduce the city’s carbon footprint by facilitating reuse and encouraging waste reduction.”
