Children in Milton Keynes invited to swap out used halloween costumes at local coffee house

    MK Swap Shop's costume swap rail allows children to swap their Halloween outfits and learn about a more sustainable version of getting ready for spooky season.

    Bar Bar Black Sheep is an award winning social enterprise coffee house, in Wolverton MK.

    Whilst in the run up to Halloween, the coffee house is hosting MK's Swap Shop's costume swap rail.

    Every year, 7 million fancy dress outfits are thrown away in the UK.

    The costume swap rail allows children to swap their Halloween outfits and learn about a more sustainable version of getting ready for spooky season.

    MK Swap Shop says: "Swing in with your littliez for a Half Term Hot Choc date, accompanied with their outfit from years ago that doesn’t fit them anymore, and see if we have something a bit more ghoulish for them to go trick or treating in."

    The swap shop is free to everybody, however you can make a £2 donation through Bar Bar's suspended coffee scheme.

    Operated by community interest company, the Black Sheep Collective, all of the bar's profits are reinvested into community initiatives.

    All "waste" from the shop is also recycled via local charities and projects.

    Bar Bar Black Sheep often host creative sessions and activities for the families and allow customers to view new works by local professional and emerging artists, access business and social enterprise support.
