tones of Carbon saved

Our Swap Shop started working in July, and has been open every Tuesday and Thursday since in line with the EWfC food support opening hours. We have diverted a total of 1009.7 kg of clothes and accessories going to land fill between the 21st of July till the 8th of December. This is a carbon saving of 28.1 Tonnes. 

The Swap Shop has been a life saver to many ethnic minority people that did not have any warm clothing or bedding. It helped a lot families to get ready for a cold winter. 

It has also gave a very great opportunity for people that have been having a clear out during lockdown and needed to donate their clothes. 

Swap Shop became a place where everyone could exchange positivity, good emotions and help each other.
