Sharing or swapping resources is one efficient method to eliminate waste and engage in reuse. Groups of people come together at a swap to exchange items for free. These swaps can also be educational. By offering training or workshops on topics associated with the swap, attendees can leave with free stuff and knowledge. Swaps can lead to community building, and you can organize a swap event for just about anything!
