Fancy a new wardrobe for free?

01 Jun 2011

Update your wardrobe and beat the credit crunch by bringing a minimum of three items of clean clothing to the SUST Swapshop at Eighth Day Café on Oxford Road, Manchester on Monday 6 June.

  • Clothes drop-off 5.45-6.15pm
  • Swapping 6.15-7pm
  • FREE if you have three items of clothing and £1 if you don't
  • Donations also welcome

Items can include garments, shoes, bags, accessories, please make sure all items are clean. Please, no underwear!

The swapshop is a simple way of reusing old clothes, which we believe makes sense to the environment and financial sense too. The Swapshop is a collaboration between Action for Sustainable Living, Manchester Friends of the Earth, STARS at The University of Manchester and Eighth Day Cafe.

Did you know that it's great if you pass on your clothes to charity shops, but that you can do even more by actually using second-hand clothes? An issue for British charity shops is that only 10-20 per cent of their clothes are actually resold in the UK.

Please forward this email to your friends. We look forward to seeing you on 6 June.
