It’s time to invest in our planet!

“For Earth Day 2022, we need to act (boldly), innovate (broadly), and implement (equitably). It’s going to take all of us. All in. Businesses, governments, and citizens — everyone accounted for, and everyone accountable. A partnership for the planet.”

These are the words on the Earth Day website in a call out for us to take action on climate. Oraco is investing in our planet by running an event, Earth Day with Oraco. The event will feature two main parts – a clothes swap and a sustainable market.

Clothes swap

Approximately 40 million tons of textiles are sent to landfills every year, with the fashion industry being responsible for over 8% of total greenhouse gas emissions.

To help combat this, the event will feature a clothes swap. We’re encouraging you to bring a maximum of five good quality garments along to enter the swap.

With your garments entered, you are then eligible to take or ‘swap’ out a maximum of five garments.

To register your spot in the clothes swap, please fill out the registration form below.

Please note: the clothes swap is FREE, however, we’d love you to register so we can get an idea of numbers for setup purposes.

Sustainable market

Running simultaneously will be an ethical market where sustainable businesses can showcase their products. These local businesses are taking the steps to invest in a better future for our planet and are selling products and services that are demonstrating this message.

Please note: all attendees must be double vaccinated against COVID-19 and show proof of vaccination upon entry.
