How to Save Money While Saving the Planet


Clothes Swap

A fun way to get a new wardrobe without breaking the bank is organising a clothes swap with friends or colleagues. Everyone brings a selection of clothes that they haven’t worn in a while and puts them in a big pile in the middle of the room. Instead of spending your paycheck, spend the evening drinking wine (or coffee from reusable cups) and modelling each other’s clothes on a makeshift catwalk before heading home with a whole new look.


Store Recycling Schemes

If you can’t convince your friends to take them home, you may be able to make money back by returning used clothes to the stores where you bought them. A number of popular high-street brands such as H&M, Intimissimi and John Lewis have ‘buy back’ schemes where they give you credit or store discount for returning worn clothes.
