Swap your way to a new wardrobe

Every year in the UK we throw away a massive 300,000 tonnes of clothing! This is bad for our pockets and the environment.

It's estimated that the value of unused clothing in wardrobes is around £30 billion and that £140 million worth of clothing goes into landfill each year.

The annual footprint of a household’s newly bought clothing, along with the washing and cleaning of its clothes, is estimated to be equivalent to the:

  • carbon emissions from driving an average modern car for 6,000 miles

  • water needed to fill over 1,000 bathtubs

  • weight of over 100 pairs of jeans

So what can we about it?

Swap your way to a new wardrobe at Sacred Heart Environment Group's Swishing Evening!

Swishing is a fun and social way of encouraging people to make the most of what they’ve got hanging in their wardrobe, sitting in a drawer or packed away in a box.
