This year TRAID were thrilled to be invited and get involved in Shangri-La at Glastonbury Festival. The message for Shangri-La (AKA ‘The Naughty Corner’) this year was REUSE RECYCLE RESIST – highlighting different forms of waste and consumption.

Festivals are notorious breeding grounds for creating incredible amounts of rubbish so we were proud to be flying the #secondhandfirst message as a call to action for festival goers to stop the waste through a series of Anti- Fast Fashion Workshops.

“I was horrified by the waste left behind at Glastonbury in 2016, so I’m taking a stand to try to combat the apathy that seems to have manifested into the minds of festival-goers everywhere. We are the only field to have a complete re-design this year – but with a difference, as the entire site has been built from recycled and repurposed materials. We are trying to set a standard across the UK festival scene, and hope to inspire as well as highlight the issues facing generations to come.” says Kaye Dunnings, Creative Director.

Friend and former TRAIDremade designer Alex Noble designed a striking tower made out of textile waste which was the base for our workshops throughout the festival where festival goers could do inside and explore, screen print anti- fast fashion slogans onto T-shirts, or onto their own clothes, and turn an unwanted T-shirt into a festival bag.

Here are a few photos from our week at Glastonbury.
