We are looking for people who would like to set up a Swishing Event or a clothes swap in Ely and in other parts of East Cambridgeshire.
Why Swap Clothes?
The clothing and textiles industry produces around 10% of global carbon emissions and is the world’s second largest industrial polluter. Clothes swaps are a practical way for local communities to take part in the circular economy/sharing economy at a grassroots level. They provide an easy viable alternative to buying new clothes (perfect for those on a low income), whilst also providing a way for people to recycle clothes easily, reducing the risk of clothing contaminating recycling waste streams.
What is a Clothes Swap and Who Runs Them?
Free Online Session on How to Run a Swish in Your Community
In addition, Cambridge Carbon Footprint (CCF) are also running a free online session on Tuesday 13 Feb 2024, 7:00pm – 7:45pm. To join this training please email Nicole at CCF with your name, email, location, and the name of any organisation that you might be representing.
