Reuse and Recycle Clothes by 'Shwopping'

Shwopping is all about reducing the amount of clothes that end up in landfill sites. When customers visit an M&S store to buy something new, they can also donate their unwanted clothing at Shwop Drops at the same time. The donated clothes are then collected by Oxfam and either resold in their charity shops, reused or recycled to support people in poverty (to find out more see Supporting Links in Resources).
