TRAID Hammersmith Opens Till Late On Thursday
Shop for second hand treasures or take part in Sew Good workshop
Revive your wardrobe at TRAID Hammersmith’s late night opening on Thursday February 20, 6.30pm – 9pm at 119 King Street.
The special opening offers shoppers the chance to browse the rails of the charity’s newly refurbished shop for the best in hand-picked second hand clothes, vintage and shoes, while the shop DJ will be playing live es.
Staff will be on hand to share their ideas on how to create a sustainable wardrobe and make the most of second hand finds.
TRAID will also be asking people to sign up to the Second Hand First pledge asking customers to commit to getting at least 50% of their wardrobe from sustainable sources like charity shops and swapping.
This is the first in a series of late night openings run by TRAID in 2014 which will feature special events including talks, films, workshops and a fashion show.
During the evening, the shop's team will also be running a Sew Good workshop teaching all the sewing and up-cycling skills you need to love your clothes again.
Booking is essential for the workshops as space is limited. If you are interested in taking part please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book a place.
TRAID is a charity taking practical action to stop clothes being thrown away, working with local authorities, businesses, housing associations, households and schools to divert clothes from the waste stream for reuse.
Around one million tonnes of textiles are sent to landfill and incineration every year, much of which can be worn again. With UK landfill at bursting point, and textiles contributing disproportionately to greenhouse emissions, TRAID’s work to find positive reuses for clothes waste is more relevant than ever.
