Provided by Stichting Slow Fashion Movement (hereinafter also referred to as "we" or "us").

Applicability and amendments

  1. These terms of use for hosts, as amended from time to time (hereinafter referred to as the "Terms of Hosting"), stipulate the terms of your participation in The Clothing Loop as a host.
  2. By signing up to become a host of one or more local clothing loops of The Clothing Loop (hereinafter also referred to as a ″Loop″), you (hereinafter also referred to as a "Host") confirm that you are of legal age in your jurisdiction of residence to enter into a binding agreement and that you agree to these Terms of Hosting.
  3. These Terms of Hosting are in addition to our Terms of Use, which remain applicable to you. The Terms of Use can be found here: In case of conflicting provisions between the Terms of Hosting and the Terms of Use, the provisions of the Terms of Hosting prevail.
  4. We reserve the right to unilaterally amend these Terms of Hosting. We will endeavour to inform you of any material changes to the Terms of Hosting in a timely manner. In addition, we may at any time modify the Platform (being our website,, our app, My Clothing Loop, and any other application(s) used by us), change and/or delete data or restrict or discontinue the use of the Platform or your participation in The Clothing Loop either as a User (being a user of the Platform)/participant or a Host, without any liability on any grounds whatsoever towards you or other third parties and without you being able to derive any rights therefrom.

General rules of conduct

  1. The Clothing Loop is an easy-to-access initiative as part of Stichting Slow Fashion Movement for swapping clothes with other people in your area or neighbourhood. The goal of The Clothing Loop is to make it easy and fun to share pre-loved clothes by connecting people in local communities that share a bag of clothes - free of charge. The Platform is solely intended to give Users the opportunity to participate in The Clothing Loop. After they have successfully registered, they will be connected to a Loop near their residence to actively start participating. Although participants and Hosts of a Loop are responsible for the implementation and monitoring of the concept of The Clothing Loop, and for all matters relating to the participation in a Loop and the conduct within a Loop, you as a Host have a key role in making sure the Loop runs smoothly – either independently, or together with one or more additional Hosts. We are happy to assist with tips and tricks, but we as Stichting Slow Fashion Movement have no responsibility and liability in respect hereto. We are only here to facilitate by providing the Platform, the rest is up to you and the participants!
  2. Your tasks and obligations as a Host include, among others, the following:
    • organizing the relevant Loop. This includes for example:
      1. sending each new participant a message as soon as possible after the participant has registered, but in any case, within 4 weeks after registration to inform the participant about how things are arranged within your specific Loop;
      2. introducing the new participant to the other participants of the Loop;
      3. placing the new participant in a logical place in the route of the Loop; and
      4. being the point of contact for participants of the Loop in case of questions, complaints or suggestions;
    • procure that participants abide by the general rules of conduct applicable to them as described in the Terms of Use and any rules agreed to by the participants of the Loop;
    • issuing a warning to participants if they do not abide by the rules as referred to above;
    • remove participants from the Loop if they no longer wish to participate or if they do not abide by the rules as referred to above;
    • introducing and managing the bags that circulate within the Loop; and
