Eco-Swap Success in Toronto

It was great  to  take  part in Swapsity's Movie Music Eco-Swap happening at the Live Green Toronto Festival on July 16 at Yonge-Dundas Square and help keep perfectly good DVDs, Blu-rays, CDs and records out of landfills.

The Live Green Toronto Festival is the annual celebration of all things green hosted by the City of Toronto. About 40,000 Torontonians are expected to attend this eco-event. Swing by Swapsity's Swap Zone at Yonge and Dundas Square with your pre-loved media items and join your fellow Torontonians in swapping, sharing and recycling movies and music. Bring as many items as you wish to trade and you'll receive one swap token per item to swap with. All media is considered of equal value. For instance, drop off An Inconvenient Truth on DVD and take home a Lady Gaga CD.Any leftover media items will be donated to Goodwill.
Nearly 3200 item were brought to the event and were exchanged. This was done to avoid these items not ending up in landfills sites.
