Why buy New when you can Swaparoo

In this article we would like to tell you who we are and how Swaparoo came to life.  Swaparoo is an online peer-to-peer platform where you can swap items that you no longer need for items that you do need.

Swaparoo founders are  Anca Minescu  (Romania) and  Annette Conway (Ireland).  Anca has a background and extensive experience  in environmental engineering, both in European academic and multinational level. Annette  has been working as chemical engineer for  20  + years in  pharma multinational companies with relevant experience in solvent recovery and  projects worth milllion euro.

,, The idea came from a  coffee talk  on how stuff clutter our homes and our lives, specially when small children are around.  We realized that a swap is healthy for our pockets and for the environment since CO2 is reduced when less goods are being produced.

Annette Conway, co-founder, Cork, Ireland:
