Singapore's largest T-shirt swap will be held on Jul. 13, 2024.

It will be one of several activities taking place at GreenParade: Wake Up and Swap, a "ground-up sustainability festival" at Hong Lim Park from 4pm to 10pm.

This will be the second edition of GreenParade, the first of which was held at Bedok Open Field last year.

Organised by GreenSpace+, participants can look forward to a plethora of free activities: clothing swaps, plant exchanges, as well as family-friendly sustainability workshops.

Here is a breakdown of all the activities you can expect.

#WakeUpandSwap (4pm to 7:30pm)

Participants can bring along their pre-loved clothes to personalise them with patches and designs, and exchange them with others during the T-shirt swap.

At the event's Plant Swap, you can also look forward to sharing your plants with others to diversify your plant collection.

Enjoy an eco-conscious shopping experience with Vinyl Pasar's curated vinyl playlists and funky upcycled vinyl art and take part in music quizzes to win vouchers.

Mono Foods, a sustainable food enterprise focused on redistributing foods that are near the end of their shelf lives, will also be organising food-tasting games and distributing free food items to participants.

Make sustainable practices fun by putting your creativity to the test.

Unleash your artistic talents by taking part in DIY patch, 3D plastic recycling and terrarium making workshops.

There will also be a workshop where you can grow your own food, among others.

And the best thing? They are all free.
