Mackay and Whitsunday Life

An Eco-Friendly And Community-Driven Second-Hand Clothing Market

A new second-hand clothing market is coming to Mackay this month aimed at promoting sustainability, affordability, and community engagement.

Healthy, Clean and Green is pleased to present the first Sweet Repeats, a market event that will have clothes for men, women and children.

By participating in the Sweet Repeats event, stall holders and shoppers will be actively helping the environment and supporting members of the Mackay community.

Selling and purchasing second hand clothing reduces textile waste and minimizes our carbon footprint.

By actively extending the lifecycle of clothing, we can collectively make a significant impact on the fast fashion industry which in turn will have a positive effect on the environment.

Customers can discover unique, stylish pieces that won’t break the bank, allowing them to express their individuality without compromising on their budget and stallholders can turn preloved wardrobe items that they no longer wear into cash, which for some could help to ease financial pressures.

Healthy Clean and Green advocates making better choices for the environment and as such there will be a big focus on making Sweet Repeats a low-waste event.

They are encouraging customers and stallholders to bring along their own water bottles, coffee cups and shopping bags.

MAD Cow Coffee will be in attendance on the day and will noy be providing single use takeaway cups, instead offering a ‘mug library’ that people can utilise if they forget to BYO.
