TRAID Late Night Shopping
Clothing recycling charity TRAID are hosting a late night fundraising shopping event in their Dalston store, allowing you the chance to get your hands on some bargains while all proceeds go to families in need.
The hashtag of the day is #insideout as participants are encouraged to wear their clothes inside out and snap a picture of their outfit using the aforementioned hashtag. Let’s help raise awareness on where our clothes come from. Let’s get a better sense of who made our clothes and have a bit of fun with finding out.
