Rags to Riches is an award-winning upcycling social enterprise that uses waste to promote environmental sustainability, community engagement and education within Glasgow and the surrounding areas. 

We employ the circular economy model to provide workshops within our own venues as well as providing outreach programmes to outside organisations to upskill, train and empower local groups and support vulnerable communities.We also sell a range of handcrafted upcycled design collections on our online shop to create economic opportunities for local makers while actively reducing and reusing waste.

Working with our community

From our community outreach work to our upcycling and upskilling workshops we have had the pleasure of working with some outstanding organisations over the years. Such collaborations encourage significant social inclusion, diversity and development while using waste to promote core environmental and sustainability values. See some of the organisations we have worked with in the past below.
