It might be tough to love your clothes and keep wearing them for longer when faced with a tempting array of newness on offer in the shops. But before you head out into the January sales for those irresistible deals, spare a thought for the impact of fast fashion on the environment, human rights and health.

Join us in an evening to explore and discuss Fast Fashion! We will watch the documentary “The True Cost” (see trailer here: https://youtube.com/watch?v=QPMU1VHgmEo), hear from Nu Wardrobe* and have our own little clothing swap!

*Nu Wardrobe is a female-led startup that is dedicated to providing alternatives to fast-fashion that are affordable and accessible no matter what your budget. Find more here:https://thenuwardrobe.com/

Clothing swap — how it works
1. Dig out all your old clothing that you no longer wear and have been collecting dust.
2. For every piece you bring, you will get to bring an item home.
3. Surplus items will go to those in need, homeless and hidden homeless.
