London might be the fashion capital of the world, but the way we’re buying clothes is changing. Fast fashion is starting to unravel, and conscious consumption is taking off, with more and more demand for eco-friendly options.
Here in London there’s a number of ways to get new threads sustainably, from supporting ethical brands to buying from local designers. But there’s one sustainable shopping trend that promises to be better for the environment AND your bank balance: the swap shop. Pop-up events invite swappers to bring along old, unwanted clothes and swap them for someone else’s pre-loved garbs. It’s a simple, sustainable way to update your wardrobe, and keep clothes out of the landfill. So hit pause on fast fashion – here are the best swap shops in London.
