Inter-Schools Clothes Swap

Concern:  The fashion industry could be more environmentally friendly.

Response: Green United decided to host an inter-schools clothes swap, which took place on 16th March 2024 and was a great success! For this pilot year it was only open to participating Lewes schools, but watch this space!

Support: We would like to thank the head teachers, and teachers from participating schools for supporting this project and for allowing Green United to present at assemblies and put up posters to promote the event. A special thank you goes to sustainable fashion pioneer, Abigail Petit, who advised Green United, organised the hanging of the clothes and provided live eco fashion edits at the event. We would also like to extend our thanks to the University of Sussex for colour printing all of the posters designed by Green United members to promote the clothes swap.
