R:evolve Recycle

We aim to reduce the impact of fast fashion and consumer waste on our planet, by engaging people in tangible and exciting solutions to help them reduce their carbon footprint. We offer a range of products and services in and around Glasgow that get people active about Climate Change through our swap shops and events, eco haberdashery, mend and upcycling workshops, thrift store, clothing bank, schools program, community café and food growing space.

This year has been an absolutely stunning year for R:evolve Recycle, smashing all our previous benchmarks and striving to grow the project, ensuring more people have easy solutions to help them reduce their carbon footprint. We circulated 45,000kg of preloved clothing back into our community through our swap shop, clothing bank, and thrift store. We attracted 1725 new members and 6689 sales of second-hand items. People engaged 1664 times to learn to mend or upcycle their clothes and textiles and we strengthened our long-term sustainability by focusing on social enterprise with self-generating income rising from 12% to 50% this year!
