Marks and Spencer launches 'shwopping' to cut landfill

Marks and Spencer has joined forces with Oxfam and actress Joanna Lumley to launch Shwopping, a clothes shopping and swapping scheme.

From now on, all its stores will accept unwanted clothing of any brand, all year round.

The idea is that people will bring in old clothes to donate, when buying new items, thus reducing landfill.

Joanna Lumley and Marks and Spencer chief executive Marc Bolland explained how it works.
