Clothes swap shops are a fun way to get new garments for your clothing collection (for little to no money) and pass on the clothes you no longer want.


It is great for the planet too as it helps reduce the amount of clothes being wasted.

Swapping is a fun and sustainable to get new-to-you clothing. About 30% of the clothes in our wardrobes hasn’t been worn in the last year- so let’s put them to good use and give them a new lease of life.


Hosting a clothes swap can be done with friends, family members or even your local community group.


You can theme your swap to anything you like including:

  • School uniform
  • Halloween costumes
  • Baby clothes
  • Formal wear
  • Christmas jumpers
  • Or even just normal everyday clothes!
