Gladrags' planet-friendly principles are key to our ethos:
by fostering and promoting the concept of rehoming and recycling costumes since 1994, we have built a resource of over 8,000 items (95% of which are donated stock), that we restyle and adapt in order to benefit the community time and time again.
This in turn enables an affordable & sustainable way to reduce the impact to the environment.
The donated costumes, fabric and props rehomed to Gladrags are given a new lease of life. To complete the circle, we also offer surplus items back to the community through our 'Costume Re-homing' scheme.
Recently we have helped a couple of SEN schools start a costume box for their drama department, and provided fabric supplies to a womens' refuge crafting group. Smaller donations have supplied shirts to an up-cycling transformation challenge, and fabric scraps for free community crafting events in Brighton Festival 2021 & 2022.
