What we stand for

Let’s Trade Goods promotes good values above all else! Integrity and morality are highly valued by the Agents involved with LTG.

Let’s Trade Goods promotes children to rethink, reduce, reuse & recycle. LTG teaches children to trade their unwanted goods for something they hold a value to. By trading, users save the environment and subsequently children learn independence and gain confidence to navigate the world of their own business of creating a Greener Future. We help to save the environment by recycling/reusing products rather than sending them to landfills and polluting the earth. We also save money because it is free to trade, we don’t need to buy new items. We can keep trading till we have what we want!

Teaching children good values is the only key to changing our world.

Let’s Trade Goods uses Safe Trading Zones to ensure the safety of their young traders. Children are incentivized to use the Safe Zones. Potential criminal activity is minimized if the children adhere to these trade rules. Parents must also take note of the notifications that are built into the system.

LTG has partnered with Earth's Call Foundation as their chosen NPO. LTG wishes to have a paradigm shift in the world steering it towards a sustainable future in which we all benefit. Earth’s Calls Foundation’s vision is to answer the call!

Trade platform for children and young adults

Let’s Trade Goods is a safe and social platform for children to trade their unwanted goods for items/goods they want. By using LTG, children have a safe and convenient way to trade their wares with friends they know or with new friends they are going to make!

A world without money is unthinkable, but yet it is possible! Eons ago mankind did not have the monetary system we now use today. In fact, our monetary system is based on a form of bartering, exchanging money for products & possessions that we desire. In a modern day environment, the challenges facing a pure trade system without money will actually be less.

Now we have technology which gives us a platform to connect with many people instantly. It enables us to find new owners for our used possessions with a click of a button!

The toy box is full of items that are no longer played with and your child’s wallet or piggy bank is empty. Thank goodness you can solve both issues with the using the Let’s Trade Goods website and mobile application! You’ll be one proud parent when you see your child assigning a value to unwanted items and trading with other Let’s Trade Goods members.

They’ll want to keep toys and things in good condition, so they may trade them later on for maximum value. Keeping your items in great condition will allow them to have nicer things in the future!
