OLD CLOTHES, NEW ME

SUSTAINABLE FASHION // CLOTHES SWAP

The Event

What we wear matters - fashion is the second largest contributor to green house gas emissions after meat consumption. We wanted to show that combatting fast fashion is something we can all fit into our lives.

 

After we were inspired by our speakers, who were leading experts and entrepreneurs at the vanguard of sustainable fashion, we were able to embrace what sustainable fashion is all about with a clothes swap.

Impact

Our attendees brought a total of 129 items of clothing for the clothes swap and had the chance to get a new look without any cost to them or the planet! 

All extra items of clothing that were left behind after the swap were donated to a local Crisis Charity Shop.
