About this Event
Calling all fashion lovers, equality supporters and local community members!
Fashion Week is fast approaching and Women’s Equality Party York invites you to join us for an evening of bubblies and clothes swapping!
Research shows that fashion generates 4% of the world’s waste each year, amounting to 92 million tons across the world. An average consumer throws away 70 lbs of clothing each year, 95% of which could be reused or recycled.
As an environmental and socially sustainable approach to updating your wardrobe, this year’s community clothes swap will be held at Heslington Village Meeting Hall on 26 March from 19:00-21:00.
Drop by with your old clothes and fill a bag-for-life with new-to-you items to update your wardrobe. Last year’s event included such gems as cozy jumpers, party dresses, athletic wear and even a few vintage-made pieces.
Curious to see what this year’s event will include?
Tickets for the event will be £5 or £10 (depending on what you’re able to donate) and will be payable at the door. In addition to covering the cost of attaining a bag full of new-to-you clothes, tickets will also include a glass of Prosecco or soft drink.
All proceeds raised will be used to fund future WEP events/campaigns.
Whether you’re a WEP supporter. community member and/or keen to support sustainable fashion, we hope we’ll see you there!
