Nicole Robertson is the founder of Swap Society, an online clothing swap for women and kids that uses a points system to give members equal value for the clothes they swap.
Swap Society makes it fun, easy and affordable for women to mix up their wardrobes in a sustainable way.
The world’s fashion addiction has created a true fashion emergency. We are buying more new clothes than ever, and wearing them for half as long.
- The apparel industry puts more greenhouse gases into the environment than all international flights and maritime shipping combined
- Fashion is the second-largest water polluter
- Every second a garbage truck of textiles is landfilled or incinerated, most of which is wearable clothing
