About the Event
Run By: Shareware
Sharewear is a charity set up to combat clothing poverty. Now in their 8th year Sharewear have provided essential support to countless individuals and families in need of clothing, bedding, and shoes. At the heart of Sharewear’s model is restoring dignity to those in need. Their users can choose from racks of clothing to ensure they have the dignity of deciding how they dress. The charity’s model relies on a combination of donations from the public as well as directly from suppliers and manufacturers local to each Sharewear outlet or franchise.
Thanks to Sharewear’s hard work over the years they have formed excellent relationships with companies who have genuinely ambitious plans for revolutionising sustainability in the industry, and the majority of clothing on offer is unworn, and often still tagged. Sharewear has helped to drive schemes that have saved a huge amount of clothing from going to landfill. Louise Cooke, founder of Sharewear will be joining us in ZERO to present a short film about how Sharewear operates followed by a Q&A session, discuss the successful campaigns its worked on, and how the community could help to bring Sharewear to Guildford.
