So we ran the first #maidstone#swapshop today! People bought clothes that no longer sparked joy for them and swapped them for someone else's! It was so much fun, we all got new wardrobes without spending a penny and our old clothes went to someone that loved them 🌿 I got this jacket which I adore 💕 this not only is fun and free but by swapping instead of buying new we help the environment 🌿 anything left over was either saved for the next event or donated to a women's refuge, mum's in need or charity 🙌 would you join in one of these events?
Ahhhh this makes us so happyyyyy!!!!😍☝🏻🥳😝 @thredup did a recent poll and their results show that the modern women of 2019 are recognising just how AWFUL fast fashion is for the environment (and humanity at large, tbh) and they want a BETTER, ethical and more sustainable alternative!
We’re all about helping people make small steps to being that little bit more sustainable in their fashion choices; be it through our swap shops, charity shop crawls or workshops and talks, and we are *so* excited to see more and more of you joining onboard our initiatives and helping to make each event just so fun and feelgood!
It’s onwards and upwards from here, gals😘 #sustainability#sustainablefashion#womenempowerment#yaaas

Just finished reading a copy of @ginamartin 's book "Be the Change" ; there's a few reasons why you follow this gram account (interests in #fashionexchange or #swapshop#swapparty 's) , but we reckon, you probably will be into everything this lovely lass has to say. She advocates using social media for good, fighting for women's rights and #sustainability - which is a big one for us and you lot.
Available via amazon or whatever, but better still, whoever wants this copy, would love to recycle it 😇😂📚 #bethechange
Smiling, laughing, and dancing❤️... ...
So excited for the next Swap Shop + Mend & Repair Event! ...
I always look forward to events because it is a way to bring like-minded individuals and community together. It is also really exciting to educate people that are curious about sustainibility.
Stay tuned for our next event!🤸🏼♂️🤸🏼♂️🤸🏼♂️🤸🏼♂️🤸🏼♂️
Today, Raconteur is making the conscious effort to stop shopping 🛍 and start swapping ♻️
Fast fashion is having a hugely detrimental impact on the planet socially, economically and environmentally. By thinking more about what we are buying and whether we *really* need it, and by giving our pre-loved items a new lease of life, we can all work towards living more sustainably 🌱💚
