❓How is QC different for The Rescue Project (TRP)?


TRP accepts items in good to gently loved condition. Other Swapaholic experiences are more stringent.




♻️Will I receive points when I declutter?


No. TRP doesn't work on a point system. TRP recirculates imperfect items by decluttering and refreshing.




💡Can I only attend the Declutter Drive or Refresh Party?


Absolutely! You can choose to do both or either one! Decluttering is free, Refreshing is at a small fee.




❓Do you only accept womenswear?


We accept menswear and kidswear along with womenswear as long as it passes our basic on spot QC.




❓What can I do with my rejected items?


We will return these items to you, but you can dispose them at recycle bins placed at certain fashion retailers.




🛍️What happens to leftover items after the Refresh Party?


Items leftover from TRP are distributed to charity partners across Singapore.
