Swap, Don't Shop!

Jayda Chong, Founder, The Swap Project

Swap, Don't Shop!

The Swap Project (TSP) was launched in late 2018 by Jayda Chong and Jamie Choy, two young women who "are passionate about sustainability in a fashionable way". Fashion of course has a huge environmental cost, and it's estimated that the fashion industry is currently responsible for more annual carbon emissions than all international flights and maritime shipping, combined. How can pre-loved clothing swap-meets like The Swap Project make a change in the way we think about fashion and our personal consumption? We speak to Jayda about this and more.
