How it works

 

1. Weigh

Put your container on to the scales and print out a label. The label tells us the tare weight (empty weight) of your container. Leave the sticker on for future uses.

2. Fill

Fill your container with however much you need of a single product. You can always use a funnel to help avoid spillages.

3. Pay

Take your pots full of lovely stuff to the cash desk to pay. The till will automatically deduct the weight of your container.

Clothes Swap

Tuesday 24th September, 6.30-8.45pm

Café Movida, Hughenden Yard, Marlborough

Swap don't Shop! Come, have a drink, update your wardrobe and chat zero waste fashion!

Why not buy new clothes?

Did you know that the textile and fashion production:

- Consumes lake-sized volumes of fresh water

- Contributes more to climate change than aviation and shipping combined

- Exploits countries with little trade union representation and weak environmental protection

- Exploits child labour, forced labour, prison labour and bonded labour

(Information from UK Parliament's inquiry Sustainability of the Fashion Industry)

How does the clothes swap work?

  • Bring along 6 - 12 items, including shoes, bags, accessories

  • Receive tokens, spend your tokens on clothes and accessories that you love

18.30 : Arrival - exchange clothes for tokens

18.30 - 18.50: Drinks, plus zero waste fashion chat/Q and A with Hayley
