The mission of Lehigh University’s Swap Shop is to simultaneously divert clothing waste from landfills while providing free clothing options for members of the Lehigh Community. The Swap Shop aims to encourage sustainability, inclusion, and thrifting.
The Swap Shop operates similarly to a thrift store but without the financial exchange. Donate your gently-used, unwanted clothing or shop for “new” clothing and other miscellaneous items.
The Swap Shop is in Room 209 on the second floor of the Office of Sustainability, located at 516 Brodhead Avenue, and is open Monday-Friday from 8-5 pm. The Swap Shop follows the university holiday schedule.
