Our Swap Shop allows you to ditch Fast Fashion and change your wardrobe without destroying the planet.
Fast Fashion describes a highly profitable and exploitative business model based on replicating catwalk trends and high-fashion designs, mass-producing them at low cost. This often entails exploiting workers in inhumane conditions.
We buy more clothes in the UK than any other country in Europe.
Last year, 300,000 tonnes of new or used clothes were destroyed or landfilled (that’s equivalent to 24,000 double decker buses!).
We can make a difference by not buying new, but by swapping.
Swap your used clothes for some pre-loved ones and help make the planet a better place.
We’ll even give you tokens to spend later if you don’t see clothes that you love when you visit us.
We’ve been doing some great work! To date, our Swap Shop has saved 443kg of clothes from landfill. Why not pop in, and help us make it a tonne?
