Time for a wardrobe clear-out! Donating clothes you no longer wear to the charity shop is a double win - one for the environment and one for the charity.

What difference does it make?

The fashion industry causes about 10% of global carbon emissions, and nearly 20% of wastewater - more than planes and ships combined. Buying and selling/donating secondhand is one of the best things we can do for the planet.

What do you need?

  • Good quality clothes and accessories you no longer wear

Where can I read more about buying and wearing clothes sustainably?

We found this brilliant article which we think is well worth a read when you have time

Then ... if clothes are made of synthetic fibres ... well. that comes from the oil industry... And then the synthetic fibres rub off the clothes and get into the soil and water ... Yup, best to go easy on fashion shopping!

So shouldn't I buy the new kit every summer?

Er ... if your existing kit has worn out, then sure ... But if it's just to be cool ... better to practise your tricks and skills. Here's some suggestions.
