Spring clean your wardrobe

Christine Rolin, Lochaber Environmental Group

Do you feel overwhelmed by your wardrobe? Want to de-clutter and simplify? According to the waste charity WRAP (Waste and Resources Action Programme) the average consumer in the UK only wears 30 per cent of their wardrobe. But how can you make the most of what you have?

Make sure the clothes you don’t wear or want any more don’t go to waste. Give away your clothes by swapping, donating or recycling them. Invite your friends around for a swap party and you can all get new outfits from each other’s wardrobes, or if there is a clothes swap near you go there. Lochaber Environmental Group have been running a series of clothes swaps in Fort William as part of their project funded by the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund. You can also donate your clothes to people in need or to raise money for your favourite charity. Avoid putting your clothes in landfill, if you can’t swap or give away your clothes look for a recycling point near you.
