POP IN TO OUR CLOTHES SWAP

CLOTHES SWAP

  • The Clothing Swap Shop is now officially open in Granton Parish Church hall. There are three rails of clothing – one for women’s clothing, one for men’s and one for children’s with baby clothes on a table. The swap shop will be open all the time but will be staffed at the following times: Monday 4 – 5pm Tuesday 4.30 – 6pm Friday 12 noon – 1pm

RESCUE BREAD

  • Additionally on Fridays we have bread and other goodies from local bakeries available.

ALL FREE OF CHARGE!

  • This project is about reducing waste - so there is no charge for any of our services. You don't even need to swap clothes - if you see something you like, just weigh it and take it!

PLASTIC FREE JULY

Climate Change isn’t the only environmental issue. Plastics have recently dominated the headlines largely due to the success of the Blue Planet television programme. 

Plastic waste is a huge issue, causing widespread pollution and killing sea animals that mistake plastic as food. But we can all do something about this! 

Plastic Free July is encouraging people to pledge to reduce their use of plastics for July (and hopefully beyond). You can find out more at www.plasticfreejuly.org and if you’re not able to sign up online you can still pledge privately to reduce your plastic use! Here are just a few ideas:

• When you’re on the go use a reusable stainless-steel bottle for water instead of buying bottled water
• If you buy takeaway coffee, invest in a reusable cup (most cafes now give you a discount for using your own cup!)
• Use a reusable fabric carrier bag instead of throwaway plastic carriers
• Use loose tea rather than tea bags (most tea bags include plastic!)

Join the project team

We’re looking for enthusiastic people to help us make an impact in reducing the carbon footprint of the local community of Granton.
