We love a tacky Christmas jumper here at Glass Onion HQ! From sequins to the luminous red and green. Festive knitwear has become a much-loved tradition, and each year there's new weird and wonderful designs. But, without sounding like a Scrooge, the festive season is also a season of increased waste. Most of these jumpers are worn once and discarded, so buying new is pretty wasteful. Hubbub says "Brits will buy 12 million festive jumpers this year, even though we already have 65 million in our wardrobes. The Christmas jumper is one of the worst examples of fast fashion, and it's adding to the plastic problem. Researchers checked over 100 Christmas jumpers and say 95% contained plastic, adding to the plastic pollution crisis." So if you're buying a Christmas jumper this year, buy second hand ♻️
By choosing a pre-loved jumper, you'll save an item of clothing from going to the landfill before it needs to. Our jumpers are unique, sustainable and charitable. We have a huge selection of vintage Christmas jumpers to suit every style and we think buying one is the perfect way to spread a little cheer this season 🌟
It's Save The Children's Christmas jumper day on the 8th December! This day is all about wearing a cheesy Christmas jumper to raise money for children across the world, helping them get the future they deserve. To support the cause, we’re selling festive jumpers online and in our Sheffield store. For every jumper sold, we will be donating 50% of the profits directly to Save the Children to help with their important work.
