Spring is a great time to revamp the closet. Out with the old, and in this case, in with the nearly new.

On May 11th HEART, a humane education organization that teaches kids about human rights, animal protection and environmental ethics, is having their 3rd annual clothing swap in New York City. Oh yes. And a vegan bake sale.

Sponsored by Ecorazzi, Vaute Couture and Girlie Girl Army, this event will raise funds to empower children to make the world better for people, animals and the planet. They tackle issues like bullying, child labor, dog fighting, companion animal overpopulation, factory farming, habitat destruction, pollution and so much more. Plus, the event itself is eco-friendly, asking people to bring items they no longer need and swapping them with other fashion and planet loving New Yorkers. At the end of the event, anything left over is given to those in need. Win win.

Grab your tickets here (only $12 if you buy in advance or $15 at the door) and start going through your closet. Last year nearly 100 people came and brought with them thousands of items ranging from shirts, skirts and dresses to handbags, ties and jewelry. Come one, come all. It’s time to get your swap on. See below for full details.
