EALING Broadway shopping centre is teaming with the sustainable fashion campaign, #LoveNotLandfill, to host its first clothes swap event on Thursday, May 30.

The event, in Town Square, will give visitors the opportunity to trade unwanted clothes. Up to ten tokens will be given for every item donated.

A free clothes workshop will help children upcycle white T-shirts with craft items and decorations.

Timings are as follows:

  • 9.30 – 10.30am: Drop off clothes and receive tokens
  • 11am – 1pm: Clothes swap
  • 11am – 2pm: Children’s workshop

#LoveNotLandfill is a campaign which encourages young Londoners to donate their unwanted clothes to charity, put them in clothes banks, swap them, borrow them and buy second-hand.

The shopping centre first partnered with the charity last year when it installed a clothes bank.

Shoppers at Ealing Broadway have already recycled two and a half tons worth of unwanted clothing since the initiative began.
