Head to Camden Town Brewery on 7th December for an afternoon of sustainable and vintage shopping with broadcaster and thrift-fashion advocate Laura Jackson. The TV personality has brought together of stylish pre-loved and vintage pieces from 11 TRAID stores – the environmentally conscious charity working to reduce the amount of clothes that go to waste – which visitors will be able to get their hands on at a Camden Town Brewery x TRAID Christmas pop-up store. What’s more, any visitors that donate to the clothes bank will receive a pint of Camden Hells on the house.
The pop-up marks the launch of Camden Town Brewery’s brand-new ’12-Pack Give Back’ scheme, in which 12-packs of Camden Hells beer have been converted into freepost donation parcels for clothes to be donated to TRAID. The campaign launches on 18th November, where shoppers will be able to find the 12-Pack in supermarkets nationwide, donate their unwanted items and aid the fight against clothes wastage, in which a startling 300 thousand tons of clothes were disposed of by the fashion industry and public in the UK last year alone.
Speaking about the event and campaign, Laura Jackson said: ‘When you shop second hand every item has its own story of where it’s been before, and by donating items that can still be re-used you’re able to pass on those pieces for someone else to enjoy which I love! It’s also an amazing way to be more sustainably conscious about what you’re buying which is so important to me. Camden have made it so easy for people to re-cycle their own clothes with the 12-Pack Give Back, and at the TRAID pop-up you can find something new without it impacting the environment.’
