Swapsity Eco-swap event at Green Living show 2012 huge success

 It was a great weekend at the Direct Energy Centre in Toronto. Green Living event was held from April 13-15 featuring over 400 booths for green energy products to organic foods had great location beside the presentation and had been advertising online and offline for everyone to bring cd's, dvd's and  vinyl records. They didn't disappoint!

At the end of the three days 2,800 were swapped and a total of 3,437 media were recycled and diverted from landfills. That’s over $21,000 that Torontonians were able to save by swapping instead of shopping! The remaining 850 items are going to start off the next swap meet, happening July 21st. We also polled swappers as they left the Swap Zone and 90% of survey swappers indicated they left very happy.
