Join the launch of Circular Textiles Greenwich on 16 July


This student-led initiative launch aims to support and raise awareness of sustainable consumption practices. At the event you can swap your pre-loved clothes and learn about the effects of over consumption and human rights impacts of textiles production.

About the Circular Textiles Greenwich Hub

The hub aims to create a space in the minds of people in the Greenwich community and beyond by creating a physical space in the University of Greenwich and a virtual platform. A place where sustainable consumption practices and knowledge is shared and promoted with a view to providing solutions which can be easily replicated and actioned at collective and individual level.

Launching their hub here at Greenwich is their first step to promote sustainable consumption in the Greenwich community by creating a place for swapping clothes, organising styling and repair workshops, public engagement events on sustainable consumption and production and promoting change by raising awareness on human rights and environmental abuses in the fashion industry.

How it works

The Hub currently showcases its work through the Clothes Swap and the Repair station.

The Clothes Swap provides individuals with the opportunity to swap their pre-loved clothing for marbles during the Hub’s collection and drop off dates. On the swap day, those marbles can be exchange for any item of pre-loved clothing, depending on the number of marbles the item is valued at.

The Repair Station provides the opportunity for individuals to learn how to repair and up-cycle their own clothing through the re-use of textiles that would otherwise be resigned to life in landfill.
