Earth Day 2022 is here and the perfect time to act, innovate and implement changes. This year’s theme is “invest in our planet” and we wanted to take this time to share what we are doing here at Barnardo’s to look after our lovely planet. We are so excited to introduce our Sustainability Manager, Abi, to explain a little further about the work we are doing. Over to Abi!
Fashion Revolution Week Day 4 is here!
Next up in our Fashion Love Stories series is the effortlessly stylish Emma Carline, sustainable fashion, lifestyle and style queen and digital creator. Pre-loved clothes are such a huge part of content and we are obsessed. Check out the below love story of a piece in her wardrobe that’s 5 years old.
“RE-WEARING is COoL!
HEY I’m Emma Carline and today I want to talk to you about rewearing your clothes, EVEN those statement pieces you don’t think you’ll wear again.
I was searching through my archive, and I came across these images and knew instantly that I needed to re-wear this top!
I thrifted it at least 5 YEARS AGO! & it is still in my wardrobe. I wear it every summer, it’s truly timeless!
This item of clothing, as well as many others in my wardrobe hold a story and a meaning. For instance, I remember wearing this top to Parklife festival in 2018! I remember dancing, lauging, smiling and joking with my friends. I made some amazing memories in this top, and I will continue to do so over many more.
Just because you’ve worn something to a festival or ” big event ” doesn’t mean that you can’t wear it again! I know it takes away a lot of the wearability, but we buy clothes to WEAR them. Not just to display them once, but truly LIVE in them. So make them memories, and hand me downs for future generations – and share those memories with them.
So don’t be afraid to re-wear! Honestly, it’s one of the coolest things you can do. For you and the planet.”
These are the kind of love stories we love to hear and see, so why not get involved and tell you own? Photograph it, film it, write about it! Get involved this Fashion Revolution week and share your love story.

Sneakers, trainers, kicks, runners or whatever you call them are probably not the first thing that come to your mind when you’re going on a thrifting adventure. But very much like thrifting for clothes, venturing into the world of thrifting for sneakers can be really interesting. Finding lost silhouettes of years gone by and maybe even finding a few pairs that are worth a few quid too.
Before you all rush out the door because of the new sneaker frontier I will tell you about later, I just want to give you a few tips of what to look out for the next time you go thrifting.Read More »
