Our final swap of 2016 will be taking place on Wednesday 30th November from 3 – 5pm in Geoffrey Manton.
Pop Swap is a pop-up clothing and book swap held termly on Manchester Metropolitan University’s campus run by the Environment Team in collaboration with our Student Sustainability Ambassadors. Open to all we have been celebrating second-hand, promoting zero waste and discouraging buying new since 2013. We also support local charities through donations ensuring nothing leftover is wasted or thrown away.
In addition to the swap, we will also be collecting items for Manchester’s homeless community supporting Mad Dog Street Project’s sock drive. If you can donate, please bring only any clean socks, hats, gloves and underwear and we will pass these on to be distributed over the winter months.
Bring any clean, intact, unloved items of clothing, shoes, accessories and books (up to 15) and receive tokens to exchange for new (well new to you). Swapping will begin at 3pm; items can be exchanged for tokens from 2pm.
Leftover items will be donated to support local charities included Goodstock on Oxford Road.
