The Seoul Metropolitan Government announced that a recycling and sharing marketplace in the center of the City will open on Saturday, September 8th through Sunday, September 23rd from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Gwanghwamun Square. Whereas the large-scale citizen’s marketplace has previously been taking place at places somewhat distant from the center, this marketplace will be opening in the center of the City at the Gwanghwamun Square to provide better access to the citizens.
The Marketplace at the Gwanghwamun Square will feature organizations related with reuse, more than 10 socially responsible companies, craft artists who make wares with scrap cloth and leather, as well as a used-goods marketplace where citizens will be able to directly sell their own goods. All in all, a very colorful event where citizens will be able to experience the culture of reusing and sharing.
This “Recycling and Sharing Marketplace at Gwanghwamun Square” will allow the citizens to directly sell their own goods, thereby providing the opportunity to provide them with the opportunity to practice reusing and live out the culture of sharing. In addition, with some of the major reuse charity stores in the nation participating, reusing and sharing culture is sure to be expanded and widely publicized to make the Marketplace a celebrated event for resource circulation.
