– Clothes Swap: Revamp your wardrobe! Bring up to 5 items of good-quality men’s or women’s clothing and take away some “new” ones. More info coming soon.
– Library of Things: Our Library will be open so you can find out how we can help you to reduce consumption by borrowing instead of buying all those things you will rarely use. Read more at www.shareoxford.org or browse the catalogue at https://shareoxford.myturn.com/library/
