Green Your City: Organize A Swap

Swap meet Help the Sierra Club turn America green by taking your eco-habits to the streets. This week's tips are about how to green your town.

Tip #3: Plan a Monthly Swap Meet

Used is the new black, so consider organizing a monthly event to get rid of unwanted stuff and acquire new-to-you goodies without spending a penny or throwing a single thing in the trash. Hold it at your house or, as it grows, at a local community center. Score vintage finds and reduce your household clutter while connecting with friends and neighbors. Got leftovers? Donate 'em to your local thrift store, and don't forget to get a receipt — it'll come in handy when doing your taxes.

Tell us: What's your best swap meet score?
