Good for the environment, good for the purse strings…

If you’re something of a fashionista, keeping your wardrobe updated can probably get a little pricey. But what if we told you that you could do it for less and do your bit for the environment at the same time? Say hello to Thrift for Good.

Not just any old thrift shop slinging your grandad’s old shirts, the Thrift for Good shop at Golden Mile, Palm Jumeirah, is a treasure chest full of high street and designer items ready to be claimed by their new owners. It stocks an array of shoes, handbags, clothes and accessories.

This weekend, Friday January 29 and Saturday 30, Thrift for Good is heading outdoors to the terrace and putting on a pop-up shop selling ‘slow fashion items, upcycled items, eco-friendly products and more’. Profits are donated to Gulf for Good, which fundraises to help children in need around the world.

As well as netting you some fabulous items at a fraction of their original price, shopping second hand is a great eco-friendly option. Just some of the high street brands that have found their way there include Mango, Topshop and Zara.

You’ll find the pop-up out on the terrace at Golden Mile Galleria Building 8 where it will be running from 10am to 6pm on Friday and Saturday. If you’ve got little ones in tow, there’s plenty for them to do such as painting and storytelling.

The terrace looks out onto the Palm Jumeirah running track which is a leafy oasis of calm in the midst of the city. Golden Mile plays host to plenty of restaurants so once you’ve shopped until you drop, why not head to one of them for a coffee alfresco?

Golden Mile Galleria 8, The Palm, Dubai, 10am to 6pm, Jan 29 to 30…
