Ok, so yes we have produced some funny images of clothes looking for a date or books looking to be re-homed; however, there is a more serious reason for our fun and why we are encouraging people into the Swap Shop this week.
You may have read our blog about Christmas – The most wasteful time of the year.
Well Valentines is pretty similar, with boxes of chocolates full of individually wrapped sweets, bunches of flowers that have flown half-way round the world before being bundled in plastic, and stuffed toys that are rarely cuddled or kept (especially after a break up), being lapped up and given, with the best of intentions, to our loved ones.
But all this love is causing a lot of unnecessary waste and emissions.
So, we want to suggest another way; show your love this valentines by wearing something pre-loved, make your special some-one an upcycled gift, or give them a book that has more than one story to tell.
Visit us Tues, Wed, Thurs or Sat 2-7pm this week (13th-17th Feb) for half price on Clothes and Books….
See you at the Swap Shop
