Pop Swap - Summer Swish / Give It Don't Bin It

Pop Swap is a pop-up clothing and book exchange held termly on Manchester Metropolitan University’s campus. Open to all we have been promoting zero waste through our swap since 2013.

This term we are joining forces with GIDBI to save even more from the bin and give staff and students the opportunity to swap unloved items before they are donated. Having a clear out why not drop of any unwanted items and we will donate it to help those in need.

Join us on Wednesday 24th May for an afternoon of swapping from 12.30 – 2.30pm in Room 1.22 Business School.


Your items go to the British Heart Foundation and Manchester Central Foodbank to raise funds and redistribute food to the people who need it.

Last year staff & students donated an amazing 124 tonnes of items to the British Heart Foundation (BHF), which raised a massive £230,723 to help support lifesaving research and treatments. Students also donated the equivalent of 1360 meals, which helped local people experiencing food poverty.
