New 2 Me Clothes Swap

 

As part of Jersey Governments ‘New 2 Me’ campaign, we will be hosting a clothes swap event.

Swapping or buying second-hand clothing reduces the need for raw materials to make your clothes. This will be a fun and sustainable way to trade some of your old unwanted items for something that’s new to you, but not new to the earth.

The Government of Jersey's 'New 2 Me' campaign aims to inspire people to reduce the number of new items they buy and encourages sharing, swapping, re-using, buying second-hand, fixing and re-wearing items.

It’s simple:

1) Get a free ticket through this page

2) Drop off all of your unwanted clothing at our drop-off zones (Monday 20 September, 9 – 5, Tuesday 21 September, 3 – 5 or Thursday 23rd September, 1.30-4 at Santander Work Café) or bring them on the evening (we advise getting there earlier if this is the case)

3) Exchange them for tokens. You can donate as many clothes as you wish but will receive a max of 15 tokens and the system is as follows: (3 tokens: Coats, Jackets. 2 tokens: Jeans, Jumpers. 1 token: Skirts, Tops, Trousers, Shorts, Accessories)

4) Come down to the Santander Work Cafe on the 23rd September and use your tokens to get something New to you!

All items must be clean and in decent condition and you'll need to have at least one token to gain entry.

Any leftover clothes will be donated to charity! Please remember to bring your own bags.

With good tunes provided, this is the perfect opportunity to swap you unwanted clothes for pre-loved items and do your bit for the planet.
