On April 22, 2023, Fashion Revolution Vietnam (FRVN), Saigon Swap and A Chau Environment will accompany at the "Keep the Revolution Going" event within the framework of Fashion Revolution Week 2023, inviting you to join us in practicing slow living through clothing exchange, refreshing your wardrobe and repairing clothes to extend their lifespan!
Thereby, together with the Community, the event aims to promote and encourage the development and spread of activities towards swapping and sharing to extend the life of clothes as well as transfer clothes that are no longer reusable to continue the life cycle of reuse - recycling - responsible and environmentally friendly treatment instead of treating them as household waste or landfill!

9:30am - 11:30am: You can bring your clothes to this early opening session to receive additional benefits such as extra exchange points and priority entry to the exchange event 30 minutes before the official opening of the exchange event.
3:00 - 5:30 p.m.: Clothing exchange event.
Participation: 150,000 VND / exchanger, including 1 drink and 15 exchange items.
1- For every piece of clothing you bring, you will receive 1 point. 1 point = 1 item of clothing or accessory that meets quality criteria.
2- With points, you can choose other items at the event. 1 point allows you to select any other part of the items.
You can exchange up to 15 items of clothing or accessories on the day of the event.
The event is based on the principle of simplicity and cooperation. In addition to being economical, this is a super eco-solution that allows you to give a second (or third!) life to clothes that are still in very good condition. You leave the event with new outfits and accessories, revamp your wardrobe and shop without any guilt!
What if your clothes are not eligible for exchange, frayed, damaged, torn and no longer usable? You can still bring it, and here we invite you to explore their next journey in the A Chau Environment:
Clothing that is still reusable but not eligible for swapping during the event, will be selected, sorted, and distributed to charities such as the Red Cross Society, religious establishments (pagodas,...), shelters, disadvantaged areas,…

Items of clothing that are not capable of reuse will be sent to local units to process (cut, sew) into industrial cleaning cloth, specifically A Chau Environment facilities that are supplying raw materials such as Industrial Sewing Facilities for the Handicapped,... The facility is contributing to creating decent and sustainable jobs for workers with disabilities, helping them confidently integrate into the community. A Chau Environment continues to participate in receiving finished products for distribution,... to factories across the country and exports to neighboring countries.
Non-reusable, non-absorbent clothing items to make wiping cloths,..., we selectively transfer to recycling units or directly pre-processing (cutting, crushing) to supply the cement plant to become an alternative combustion fuel to coal - without causing other secondary pollution.
Come along for our clothes swap to refresh your wardrobe and join us as we practice the slow act of repairing our clothes to prolong their longevity!
