Clothes swapping at Pop Swap

How does it work?

Bring along any unwanted clothing, shoes, accessories, books and magazines (anything really) that are in good condition that you no longer love. You can bring your items along on the day or to a collection point prior to our Swap. You can get a maximum of 10 coupons (1 per item), which you then use at Pop Swap. For example, if you donate two tees and a book, you get two clothing coupons and one book token. There are always loads of items, for both men and women why not check out some of the items that have already had donated which will be up for grabs on our Facebook page.

Around £140 million worth (350,000 tonnes) of used clothing goes to landfill in the UK every year.

Supporting local charities

In November, over 200 items were rehomed with participants and over 250 leftover items were donated to charities including Goodstock. Staff and students also donated special items to go directly to homeless charity Mustard Tree, items including warm clothing, blankets, sleeping bag, toiletries and sanitary products.
