Upcycling, put simply, is the process of putting old products to better use.
Given the rising importance of environmental issues (see London’s climate change protests this week), now is a better time than ever to do our part and get involved. London – if you search – is brimming with upcycling events including sustainable styling workshops, clothes swaps and similar happenings for books and even food; so It’s easier than you think to start doing your part. Here are 4 upcoming events that you should think about attending…
Ethical Brand Directory’s Roberta Lee is holding a styling workshop allowing guests to receive styling advice, swap clothes and enjoy a personal shopping experience.

Stylist and sustainability expert Daisy Schubert is hosting a clothes swap party with a difference.
WALK IN WARDROBE permits attendees to try on and go home with as many items as they choose, all for the ticket’s set price. All the clothes are arranged strategically by ‘seasonal colour coordination’, making your selection process that bit easier. WIW also encourage attendees to bring a canvas bag to avoid plastic usage, so it’s a win win.
