Extinction Rebellion Green Friday Clothes Swap at MIMMO Studios

Friday 26th November 1pm - 4pm

WHY CLOTHES SWAP?

Disrupt fast fashion by proving there's alternatives to buying new;

The average consumer now buys 60% more clothing than 15 years ago, and disposes of them much more quickly. Only 1% of clothes are recycled to make new ones, 2 tonnes of clothes are bought in the UK each minute in the UK. Each week in the UK, 11 million garments end up in landfill. If clothing stayed in active use for 9 months longer (to an average of 3 years), this could reduce the carbon and waste footprint by 20-30%

WHY BLACK FRIDAY?

Black Friday sales reinforce the societal pressure that people need new things all the time. We want to celebrate the act of sharing and swapping on Black Friday - and make it Green Friday instead.

Swap, don't shop!

HOW IT WORKS

Please bring no more than 5 items of clothing, accessories and/or footwear ready to be added to the rail.

We accept all shapes and sizes including children's clothing. Please be considerate with the items you are swapping and make sure they are in reasonable condition and freshly cleaned.

Take your pick from the rail of garments which are being swapped by others!

This is a free event organised by Extinction Rebellion.
