Start sorting out the things you might want to swap or have mended ready for the event. Last time we counted there were over three hundred people coming along and huge amounts of ‘stuff’ that would have gone to landfill was re – homed. If you have nothing to swap then come along anyway and take what you want, giving Greener Fram a donation. We are funded only by your donations. We also provide free fairtrade tea and coffee, and usually cakes as well.
Come and take part. You might just find that item you didn’t know you wanted and when you get fed up with bring it along to another Swap and Mend and swap it for something else.
We mend items. Bring something along and rather than throw it away get it mended. Our volunteers give their time for free and Greener Fram funds the materials. All it costs you is a donation to cover costs.
Great for children as no money is involved. ‘Just make sure they don’t try the same in the local shops.’
Swap and Mend is organised by Greener Fram your local transition group. Come and find out what that is all about.
