The Green Living Show is Canada's largest consumer show dedicated to all things green. About 40,000 people are expected to attend
this eco-event. Swing by Swapsity's Swap Zone with your pre-loved media items and join your fellow Torontonians in swapping,
sharing and recycling movies and music. Bring as many items as you wish to trade and you'll receive one swap token per item to
swap with. All media is considered of equal value. For instance, drop off Planet Earth on DVD and take home a Lady Gaga CD.
You’ll be able to take home as many items as you bring.
As a community, we're aiming to create a huge media library sure to offer something that will catch your eye.
If you're coming with the kids, have them bring their gently-used CDs or DVDs and trade them for a few new selections
from our family-friendly section. Build your media library the green way by swapping your movies and music for something
that's new to you.

HOW WILL IT WORK
BRING: Take your pre-loved DVDs, CDs, vinyl records and Blu-rays to our Swap Zone.
GET: Receive a swap token for every accepted item you bring.
SWAP: Trade you swap tokens for new items from the Swap Zone.
5 DVDs + 4 records + 1 CD
- You can bring an unlimited number of DVDs, Blu-rays, CDs and vinyl records to the swap. To participate, you must contribute at least one media item.
- Participants are invited to bring movies and music of any genre. No X-rated or questionable media please. We reserve the right to not accept any items that we feel are unsuitable.
- We will have a section dedicated to kids' and family movies and music. When dropping off your items, please let us know if any are family-friendly.
- Please bring original media only. Counterfeit or pirated media items will not be accepted.
- The items must be in good condition. Please do not bring any media items which skip or do not work. We will be checking all items that are dropped off to ensure they are original and not scratched. Remember, your items will be passed on to a fellow Torontonian!
- You will be able to take the same number of items that you bring. You can choose to take back fewer items. Keep in mind that all swaps are final.
- All media items will be considered equal value. For example, if you contribute 10 DVDs, you could swap it for five records, three CDs, one Blu-ray and one DVD.
- We will be accepting movies and music in both English and French. Please refrain from bringing foreign language media to this swap event.
- There will be no money exchanged, and no purchase of swap items. Just pure swapping.
- You can redeem your tokens anytime between April 13-15 (during opening hours). If you have a token but don't find anything that you like when you arrive, you can come back to the Swap Zone later in the day or the next day to swap your token for new arrivals.
- You will receive 1 swap token for each disc you contribute. For example: if you bring the 6th Season of Smallville on 4 Blu-ray discs, you will be given 4 tokens to use toward other media items. If you bring a 2 DVD set of Planet Earth, you will be give 2 swap tokens.
- All media items must be stored in a case. Media items must be original, but the cases don't have to be.
- Live Green Toronto Membership Card holders who participate in the swap will be able to receive one bonus media item, while supplies last. For example: card holders who drop off five items, will be able to pick up six items. You must present your membership card and bring at least 1 media item to do this. You can take advantage of this special offer only once during this three day event.
See you on April 13, 14 and 15.
