    Eco Wear

    Eco Wear is a pupil-led charity that provides parents of students at SJC with quality-checked, second-hand, low-cost school uniforms. Originally created as a marketplace back in 2020 for parents to sell pre-loved and affordable uniforms to each other, Eco Wear then grew as we began selling the school’s old ‘stash’ of long-lost uniforms. Today, we are selling these uniforms with a website and an app, alongside our parents' marketplace. Our aim is to reduce the amount of new uniforms being manufactured, sold and disposed of incorrectly. We try to do this by encouraging the sale and use of second-hand uniforms in order to gradually minimise the waste caused by uniforms. In addition, a fraction of profits will also be donated to an Eco-charity, such as Keep Wales Tidy, this means that an Eco-initiative will also benefit other environmentally-friendly charities.
