Did you know people in the UK have an estimated £30 billion worth of unworn clothes in their wardrobes*. Plus £140 million of unused clothing (UK) goes to landfill every year*. Landfill, not even recycled! The clothing and textile industry is the second biggest polluter on the planet behind oil. Shocking statistics, which are hard to put into context, I know!
I’ve shopped in charity shops, at car boot sales or on eBay for years for the majority of my clothes (except my underwear 😉 ) but this year I’ve been doing things different. A friend of mine organised a clothes swap at the beginning of the year, then another.
Let me know if you and your friends do something similar. It’d be nice to know we can make a tiny difference 💚
