Frock Swap reminder

FASHIONISTAS’ FROCK SWAP RETURNS

Wednesday October 15th 7.30pm

The Green Room (above SUSSED)

Back by popular demand-the classy clear-out returns. A chance to raid your closet for items you know longer wear, swap them and go home with something amazing to freshen up your wardrobe. At the same time we can reduce our carbon footprint and have fun. That can’t be bad!! says charity Sustainable Wales.

“As a nation we have a staggering £30 billion worth of clothes stashed within wardrobes that we never wear. Around 30 per cent of clothes bought every year are not worn. 0.4 kg of CO2 is saved for every item of clothing that is re-used rather than bought new, stated Director, Margaret Minhinnick.

Participants should bring at least one loved item (clothing / shoes, accessories and jewellery), considered too good for charity shops. They must be of decent quality, permitting a same value swap.“You know the stuff”, Margaret said, “those shoes you brought but were a little bit too big, that dress you love but just isn’t your colour or no longer fits! But please don’t bring anything with holes, out of shape or stained! Men’s clothes and children’s clothes are also welcome.*, she added.

1item =1swap, 2 items = 2 swaps etc
