Eco-friendly vintage clothing sale returning Swindon

By Barrie Hudson - 5 June 2024


Worth The Weight will be back at Steam on Saturday 15 June.

The organisers say their vintage kilo sales are just one way to stay on trend this season, but at the same time reduce the amount of waste that could end up in landfill. 
Worth The Weight's Chris Davies said: “Our events remain increasingly popular, obviously we’re seeing summer stock fly off the rails but people know a bargain when they see it - our events have a full range of departments from kappa jackets to short shorts.”
According to Worth The Weight, as the cost living continues to rise and as purse strings remain perpetually tight, people are looking at more ways to be savvy this summer - and that goes for consumers clothes shopping habits too. 
Recent figures place the fashion industry second only to agriculture as the biggest consumer of water worldwide. The demand for clothing has meant that the industry is also responsible for 10 percent of the global carbon emissions. 
Fortunately, the fashion world is seeing a shift in the way consumers are shopping, with the pre owned clothing industry increasing by 18% to £156bn since last year and is expected to increase more than twofold by 2028. 
According to an article in March’s edition of British Vogue, it foresees ‘craft’ as a Spring/Summer trend for this year’s readers, the perfect way to reinvent any item of clothing. It also highlights how fashion brand Diesel uses shredded denim for party dresses and crochet is being embellished on garments to give life to old garments.
Entry to the Steam event, which runs from noon to 5pm, is £3 for early bird and £2 after.
