Did you know that 26% of the items in our wardrobes go unworn? We're holding clothes swap shops across the year so that pre-loved clothing doesn't go to waste, and you can find something new you love. Join us on the last Friday of every month during term time at the Student Centre.

We all love fashion, but it can have a huge impact on the environment and the people who make our clothes. We will be running Swap Shops throughout the year!

Did you know?

  • The UK bins 235 million items of clothing each spring.
  • Textile manufacturing uses huge amounts of water, much of which gets flushed into waterways laden with contaminants such as bleaches, acids, inks and dyes. Farmers in parts of China and India are reportedly predicting fashion’s next biggest hues by the colour of rivers tainted by textile industry runoff.
  • Workers in developing nations are often paid a pittance to work in unsafe conditions.

Save money and the environment by swapping your clothes at our swap shops!

How it works

  1. Bring along your preloved clothing that you want to swap.
  2. Browse the clothes available in the Swap Shop.
  3. Swap your preloved clothing for these clothes.
  4. If you don't see anything you like, collect a tag and come along to a future Swap Shop to find something there that you'd like to swap: the clothes available are always changing.
  5. No resellers please. We're here to rehome clothes so they can be loved again and to limit the impact feeling great in a new look has on the planet. We're not here for us or others to make money from generously swapped clothes. Suspected resellers will be politely asked to leave.
