Pick-up one-of-a-kind items, contribute to the sharing economy and connect with your community at this popular biannual event. Sustainably get rid of things you no longer want and swap them for things you actually do, like a cool lamp or children's clothes. See below for advance drop-off times.
Join us for a panel discussion between the Toronto Tool Library, Bunz Trading Zone and other key members of Toronto's sharing economy for a discussion about the role we can all play in buying less, sharing more and reducing our city's footprint.
Join Repair Café Toronto at their take-apart table in the Children's Garden! They'll be providing children with tools to carefully open up various household items, from mechanical toys to DVD players, to see what's inside and how they work.
Challenge your friends to a game at The Sharing Depot's Board Game Café or swing by and learn all about the amazing work that the Tool Library is doing in Toronto's circular economy.
