Three women wearing swapped clothes

Stop & Swap

Calling all north Londoners! Are you looking for a sustainable yet fashionable way to refresh your wardrobe? NLWA, in partnership with Love Not Landfill, is bringing you a series of online clothes swap events where you can exchange items you’ve fallen out of love with for new pieces, using the Nuw mobile app for FREE – normally worth £7.99 a month.

JOIN THE ONLINE SWAP – DOWNLOAD THE APP HERE

You can join the first online swap on Wednesday 11 November by downloading the Nuw mobile app here for free.

We’re also presenting a series of Instagram Live events hosted by Love Not Landfill, where fashionistas and sustainable fashion advocates will be exploring how we can all reduce the impact of our clothes on the planet. There are £30 billion worth of unworn clothes in the UK’s wardrobes and research shows that extending the life of clothes by 9 months reduces their impact on the environment by 25%. Clothes swaps have become popular with young fashion lovers - in fact, 75% of 16-24s recently polled said they have swapped or would swap clothes. Due to COVID-19 restrictions many in-person events have been halted, so NLWA and Love Not Landfill created the online Stop & Swap so the swapping can continue.
