Suited and Booted
One-way we are doing our bit is with the Suited and Booted campaign, which aims to reduce the amount of fast fashion produced while providing students with clothes for interviews and work. The trend of fast fashion has negative impacts on the environment such as water pollution, the use of toxic chemicals and increasing levels of textile waste, which most of the time ends up in landfill when we no longer want the clothes we rushed out to buy!
Instead of buying something new that you may only wear once or twice, why not check out our Suited and Booted shop and pick something up free of charge if you are a student. If you’re a staff member and have your eye on something in the Suited and Booted shop, we also run a token scheme: for every five items you donate you can choose something to take home!
Also, at the end of each academic year there will be a clothing exchange where anyone can come along and swap items one for one. This way we can update the Suited and Booted shop with fresh and up to date items of clothing ever year.
Where to find us?
Suited and Booted shops exist on four campuses, at the locations below. If you would like to browse the goods, come along to any of the locations or view our database of stock, click here. If you see something you might like that is on another campus, it can be arranged to be brought to your closest campus for you to view.
If you would like to donate items of clothing, we ask that they are in a very good, washed condition and dropped off at your most convenient location. Anyone external wishing to donate can leave items to reception at the below campuses. Suited and Booted is primarily focused on receiving items that can be worn to interviews or for work.
Eco Committees will exist on each campus, comprised of Students, Corporate and Academic Staff to stimulate innovation, experimentation and risk taking and they will become a driving force of our sustainable college.
