You want to do something for the environment and get involved in more sustainability? Then come to the Mensa Ehrenberg on January 24, 2023 between 11:00 and 18:00 ! There, students of the Task Group Sustainability at TU Ilmenau will organize a clothing swap party in cooperation with ILMPULS e.V.. Because almost everyone has clothes in his or her closet that he or she no longer wears.

According to a Greenpeace survey, 40 percent of the clothes in Germany are rarely or never worn. Instead, nearly 400,000 tons of clothing are disposed of every year. With the clothing swap party, the organizers want to give such items of clothing a second life and at the same time motivate people to adopt more sustainable consumer behavior. The production and transport of clothing not only consume many resources, but are also responsible for a large proportion of the microplastics in the oceans.

So on January 24, bring your discarded clothes that are still in good condition to the Mensa and trade them in for free! Any items that end up being left over will be donated.



  • Please only bring clothes that are in good condition and washed (max 10 items per person)!
  • Do not Offer shoes, socks or underwear!

Also feel free to let your friends know. We look forward to seeing you!
