What is the Swap Shop?

The conscientious use of resources helps protect the environment. Handing down, recycling and reusing are positive and constructive actions, which in turn extends a product’s lifespan/useful life. Everyone can effectively contribute toward responsible use and subsequent disposal of materials, thereby reducing CO2 emissions. 

In the city of Winterthur, Give & Take provides a convenient location for those interested in sustainable lifestyle options and reducing CO2. It is a venue in the heart of Winterthur where residents can bring items that others may wish to use, whilst obtaining something new for themselves. Abide by the slogan: Give & Take – so that material things enjoy a longer life. Furthermore, what is laying around unused could be of value elsewhere.

Donate only those items that are given with a clear conscience, i.e. products that are clean, intact and functional. Please refrain from dropping off perishable goods, hygiene articles and packaging materials. The Swap Shop welcomes merchandise intended for personal use only. Fair play is appealed to as a matter of honor. It takes a lot of passion to turn Give & Take into a gift shop that successfully functions continuously. The project can only survive long-term through ongoing volunteer efforts and financial donations.
