Clothes swap event drops with massive success

Clothes swap event helps us to give clothes a new lease of life

Clothes can be a hinderance. We all have them clothes that we don’t wear but are too good to throw out. So, what do we do with them? Promise ourselves that we will donate them to a (very worthy) charity.
We get life is busy and sometimes we never actually get to do what we want. What if we threw in something special as a little treat and a bit of motivation for you to take that plunge and give them old clothes a new lease of life.
Here at The Recycle Project, promoting a circular economy is at the heart of what we do. Creating an environment where being able to recycle, reuse and discover a whole new world.

What is a clothes swap? How does it work?

The clothes swap is as it sounds. You bring along the bag of clothes that you want rid of, have a look through our selection of clothes and boom, take that item, and pop yours in for someone else to take advantage of and get it back into the community.

We discovered this online, one of our volunteers had mentioned it and we thought it was a fantastic, very creative concept that we could adapt and make our own, thus The Recycle Project clothes swap was born. We run this event every two weeks. It runs from 9am until 2pm on a Saturday.

customers shopping within the recycle project
Not only can you come and swap some clothes, but you are also invited into the shop to have a look at The Project’s array of different items we have in our shop. Kids toys, musical instruments, furniture, and sports equipment are but a few of the things we have waiting to be set free, back into the community to bring joy to our locals.

Take a look at our FREE workshops!

From working with pallets to art, crafts and furniture upcycling. We have a little something for everyone
