The make do and mend ethos is having a serious revival! From the 17th-23rd November, clothes recycling charity shop TRAID presents #secondhandfirst week, encouraging us to get into the spirit of reusing and repairing our clothes.
You can also take part by pledging a percentage of your future wardrobe as second hand, to challenge yourself to alternative ways of shopping that doesn’t involve fast fashion and promotes sustainably.
Make sure to check out Bough to Beauty and TRAID’s swap event at Strongroom Bar & Kitchen, in collaboration with TRAID (image left), on the 23rd November.
You can also get involved by tweeting the hashtag #secondhandfirst and sharing your love for all things pre-loved!
