Boo Hodges founder of RemadeinBrighton is a designer, artist and performer with a background in Theatre, Costume, Community arts, creative play and events. A remakery project and social Enterprise where the focus is about raising awareness surrounding the impact we have on the environment in our everyday lives. RemadeInBrighton reuses items and materials destined for landfill and puts these back into circulation using creative and imaginative design and skill.
Her recent projects have included working with young people to look at the fashion industry and sustainable fashion where she explores being creative with rag bags and putting her own stamp on fast fashion items, restyling rubbish in a showcase for the Trashion show that was part of Bfest.
Alongside this there is an ongoing Brolley to Bags project where Hodges asks people to bring in discarded broken umbrellas reusing the fabric that would otherwise be dumped and thrown into landfill. Making life bags, promoting reusable bags and petitioning to put pressure on our government towards plastic bag waste are just some of the things this brand does to help our planet.
