Another man's treasure!

Last week we held another infamous Bow Arts Swap Shop as part of our Environment Campaign.

Staff and artists were invited and encouraged to bring items that they no longer wanted or used in exchange for something.

We felt it was important to hold this events as a way to tackle the shocking statistics around landfills and wastage. In the UK we produce around 1 million tonne of textile waste a year and wasted food in landfill mounts up to 20 million tonnes of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions

The swap shop proved an excellent way of getting grid of unwanted items in a sustainable way and gaining some great items like a fabulous elephant cushion and a Classic rock vinyl!
