Mini-swish (or clothes swap) is simply what it says, a clothes swap. Bring along a few good quality items to swap for something else (please bring items you would be happy to take home yourself).
In the UK alone, 10,000 items of clothing being sent to landfill every five minutes, equivalent to £140 million in value every year! But it’s not just the impact on landfill that’s an issue. It’s also the amount of raw materials used to produce the items that are going to waste too. To put it into perspective, it takes around 1,800 gallons of water to make a single pair of jeans!!
Join in with the mini-swish and help reduce the impact of our clothing on the planet!
