We live in a throwaway culture and here at Hullabaloo we feel passionately about our ethos to optimise every opportunity to reuse, recycle and upcycle things that would otherwise end up in landfill!
Many of the buttons, beads and embellishments that are used for our fascinators, jewellery and upcycling projects are taken from things that our customers have donated and would otherwise have thrown away or sat in the back of a cupboard.
We strive to make our workshops a place where people can come and learn how to be more resourceful: whether you bring an old pair of shoes to découpage, or a tired picture frame or even a piece of furniture to upcycle or give a piece of jewellery or top you might otherwise have thrown away a new lease of life.
The thing that might surprise you is that in most cases, we find the new version is even better than the original, and ironically more original!
The activities on many of our holiday camps also strive to promote this ethos of resourcefulness, as we feel even more passionately about passing it on to our future generations!
