Be part of the sharing economy
The Come Swap & Shop initiative is a brilliant way for you to play your part in this present climate, where more and more people are becoming aware of their carbon footprint, and in need for alternatives to traditional shopping methods. Our ethos is to encourage our members to be more environmentally responsible.
Here are a few ways to reduce your carbon footprint:
If you’re going to buy, buy quality that lasts, even if it means paying a bit more, it will last longer & you won’t have to replace it so quickly.
Be aware of the way advertisers & marketers try to make us consume more and more and are trying get us to buy things that we don’t need.
Talk to your friends and children about consumption.
We help our customers to instantly declutter, and refresh their wardrobe, making their shopping experience much more cost effective & eco friendly, so you’re actually able to reduce consumption and lessen waste.
Griffin Charitable Trust
We currently choose to support The Griffin Charitable Trust, which is a charity working at the grass roots level in some of Jamaica’s most volatile and dangerous inner-city communities, educating, training and providing care to the communities’ most vulnerable, the elders and the children at risk.
The Griffin Charitable Trust was founded by Moira Morgan in 2007.
Its a UNICEF-recognised, award winning Charity focused on behavioral changes, resolving disputes peacefully amongst vulnerable and violent communities in Jamaica.
It was so lovely catching up with Moira during her short trip back in London, UK. And just as I thought, she’s a phenomenal woman with a big beautiful heart. Click here to read more.
