Earth Day Swap and Shop with Fresh Collective and Paper People Clothing

Last night our Queen St store was full to the brim with lovely ladies ready to celebrate Earth Day in style at our Swap and Shop event! We had so much fun browsing the overflowing rack of pre-loved goodies, making new friends, munching on organic snacks from 4 Life Natural Foods, and finding new gems to wear for spring!

We’d like to give special thanks to Bullfrog Power who donated an amazing gift basket (and provide green energy to all three of our stores), and to our new friends at Trend Trunk who hooked up our swappers with some awesome gift cards!

Thank you to everyone who came out and participated in our Earth Day celebration! We hope you all love your new goodies!

Happy Earth Day from Fresh Collective

At Fresh Collective, we are committed to sustainability, eco-consciousness, and being a contribution to the world.

We shop local, support local talent and in the last year switched to a sustainable energy source in all our stores through Bullfrog Power.

Tonight we are hosting a Swap & Shop event in our Queen St store and it’s hosted by one of our most prominent eco-friendly designers: Jennifer Fukushima of Paper People Clothing.

At tonight’s event she will be launching The Cynthia Dress:


The handkerchief hem scarf dress is quickly becoming Paper People’s signature piece for the spring/summer season.  This year we’re pleased to offer the Cynthia Dress.  The dress features a cross over v-neck bodice with narrow lapel and long ties that can be wrapped around to cinch you in where it counts!  Made from super comfy organic cotton/spandex jersey and matching poly lining, the patterned, reclaimed scarves make each one special and unique!  Dress it up for graduation or a summer wedding or just have fun every day!

Colours: black, purple (shown), red, sage green, taupe  (these base colours will be combined with scarves in matching and complementary colours)

Fabrication: reclaimed scarves, organic cotton/spandex jersey, polyester lining

Sizes: xs, s/p, m, l/g

Retail price: $139


We’re excited for these new dresses to arrive and think they’re going to be a big hit this summer! Come by and try one on this week!
