Marks & Spencer has launched a tie-up with online marketplace eBay and anti-poverty charity Oxfam to sell second-hand school uniforms.

The initiative, part of Marks & Spencer’s established Shwopping waste reduction and circular economy campaign, will enable people to buy good quality ‘pre-loved’ uniforms as the cost-of-living crisis continues to take a toll on many and the back-to-school period nears.

M&S has installed dedicated Shwopping boxes in 200 branches for customers to donate old school uniforms, which will then be sold through an eBay store and Oxfam shops, raising funds for charity in the process.
