2023 Portsmouth Trash To Trendy GalaTrash to Trendy Gala


The 2023 Portsmouth Trash to Trendy Gala is certain to be THE EcoEnlightened event of the year. This is a creative black tie event where attendees are encouraged to create their outfit or at least some part of it out of trash. Recycle, Upcyle, create it yourself or support a local company by puchasing your one of a kind outfit – or do a little of everything. The goal is to learn what is possible, be creative, and hopefully end up with an outfit that will grab attention and start a conversation!

We are also asking all attendees to perform an EcoAction in conjunction with the Gala. We are not just celebraing reducing, reusing, and recycleing we also want this event to be a catalist the encourages all sorts of acts that clean up our environment and or help fight climate change and protects the environment for future generations.
