Do Something UK
We set up Do Something UK to harness your creativity and energy to support causes you care about.
Do Something UK builds on the amazing success of Do Something in the US.
Using the power of online to inspire offline action, we want to make social action fun and easy to carry out.
Our actions have maximum impact without ever requiring money, an adult, or a car.
Our latest Do Something campaign aims to tackle the issue of waste and the current throwaway culture fulled by the rise of low cost high street fashion. 10,000 items of clothing are thrown away every five minutes in the UK alone. That comes to over two billion clothes a year – one in every four purchased – which adds around 500,000 tonnes to the UK's landfill sites.
Get Trashed launches with our Car Boot Disco Event on 24th November at the Ministry of Sound in London. The Sunday afternoon event combines music, fashion and clothes swapping to encourage you to update your wardrobe by exchanging and customising clothes instead of spending on fast fashion.
