Recycle for London and Jumble Trail have teamed up for a second time to bring Sutton residents together for a free event that encourages the community to come together whilst reducing waste and promoting sustainability.
The Sutton Jumble Trail is one of six events taking place across London from mid-July through to September, giving residents the opportunity to meet others in their local area to buy, sell or swap items that would otherwise go to waste, all in a street party atmosphere. Almost 9,000 people took part in last year’s Recycle for London Jumble Trails, with nearly nine out of 10 saying they would do so again.
The Sunday’s event will take place from 11am to 4pm in the Riverside area between the River Wandle and Limes Green. Successful trails have so far taken place in Havering, and before that, Wandsworth and this weekend will be followed by similar Jumble Trails in Greenwich, Brent and Merton.
Jumble Trails present an easy way for local people to meet each other while promoting a greener environment. Nearly half (47%) of those involved last year said their highlight was meeting neighbours or ‘having nice conversations’. A quarter (26%) listed ‘having a clear out’ of unwanted items as their highlight.
