Don’t bin it – shwop it says M&S and Oxfam

Have you heard about shwopping yet? It’s a brilliant initiative from M&S who have teamed up with Oxfam to give old clothes a new lease of life and reduce landfill at the same time.

Most of us have a wardrobe full of clothes we don’t wear anymore – but instead of chucking them out, M&S and Oxfam are asking you to donate them.

Just take an unwanted item of clothing with you next time you pop in to M&S buy something new or take them straight to your nearest Oxfam shop.  When you do, Oxfam will give you an M&S voucher for £5 off a £35 spend on clothing, home and beauty products in M&S stores and online.

M&S and Oxfam are hoping shwopping will raise an extra £2 million over the next 12 months alone. To give you an idea of just how amazing this is – it’s enough to fund Oxfam’s work in Zambia for a whole year!
