Hounslow Library Swish
Date and time
Saturday 06 May 2017
11:30am - 1:30pm
Bored of what’s hanging in your closet? Then it’s time to GET SWISHING!
Dig out those clothes lurking at the back of your wardrobe and use them as currency to get clothes you’ll wear.
Bring up to 10 items of clothing you no longer want that are clean and in good condition to swap.
Drop them off from 11:30am – 12:00pm in exchange for tokens (1 item = 1 token).
The Swish opens at 12:30pm, and then it’s time to shop! Browse the rails and use your tokens to take away a fabulous new outfit.

Fashion Revolution Week
It’s Fashion Revolution Week and we’re celebrating to raise awareness of textile waste. Did you know in the UK we throw away roughly 350,000 tonnes of clothing and textiles worth over £140 million annually. In west London most of this ends up being burned for energy recovery – not the best use of clothing for our economy…
