Before you give away or dispose, why not attend one of our pop-up swap shops and exchange them for something new to you?
Every new item we buy has gone through extensive production & transportation processes before it arrives in our hands creating carbon emissions that have a big impact on the environment. By swapping rather than disposing / buying new we can minimise the consumerist process and utilise existing resources within our community.
Do you know that by extending the lifetime of clothing by three months of active use through ways of swapping, mending or up-cycling would result in 5-10% reduction in each item of the carbon, water and waste footprints? What is better than spending no money, saving the environment, and getting things you like from an alternative shopping experience?
Our swap shop focuses on clothing and books and is located at Glasgow City Centre (G2 6HJ). We also run as a pop-up shop in various locations. Our monthly swap shop on the last Wed of each month. See more details here.
