#GladToBeSomethingNew

Launched in summer 2016, the #GladToBeSomethingNew campaign embraces all things dear to Glad Rags.  With a focus on the importance of thrift, re and up-cycling, we pride ourselves on embracing creativity to produce individualised and forward thinking fashion, that’s intertwined with a distinct social conscious and aims by:

Encouraging local people to get involved in community projects

Providing a high standard of volunteering opportunities and training

Diverting usable materials from landfill

Creating a local community hub, where people feel comfortable to get involved and share collective skills and knowledge

Supporting the work of the Glad Foundation and Glad Cafe

#GladToBeSomethingNew encompasses all of the above criteria, across a diverse array of workshops, projects and events.
