The Urban Upcycle Clothing Swap is an eco friendly way to refresh your wardrobe.
At Urban Upcycle, it is our aim to help preserve the Earth by minimising negative environmental impact through upcycling reusable and interesting items which would otherwise be heading for landfill.

The swap is hosted by Project Selvage. To take part bring 6-10 pieces of quality clothing in very good condition, these are exchanged for a token which you can shop for with clothes also bought by swappers on the night.
Head in for 7pm to check in and drop off, there will then be a presentation on sustainability and the swapping takes place before ending at 9pm.
Places are limited so book now. Great way to catch up with some friends too.
