Supplier Database

We've created this resource to help you find suppliers who are committed to promoting sustainable practice in their services and operations. This is a developing tool which we'll continue to grow with the Green Arts community.

If you are a supplier and would like to be added to this database, or if you would like to suggest a supplier that you have worked with, please get in touch at

Set up in 2011, is a freecycle website for Theatre and the related creative industries.  Our community based project provides an online message board to share and re-home your unwanted set, props, costumes.  We promote sustainability, waste reduction, and the sharing of our resources across our industry.


The Edinburgh Remakery is a project run by Remade in Edinburgh, a charity whose mission is to promote sustainability, teach people the skills to repair and reuse items to divert these from landfill, and work towards a zero waste community. The Edinburgh Remakery sells second-hand, refurbished furniture, household goods, and IT equipment, runs creative repair, refurbishment, and upcycling workshops in woodwork, sewing, and textiles, and offers affordable 1-2-1 IT and sewing repair appointments.

Edinburgh is the first UK wide community database of all of the props cupboards, costume stores and set warehouses in the country, created to promote sharing between Theatre Companies and Venues, Commercial Hire Companies and Set Builders – from the smallest to the largest flagship companies. We invite you to join our project and list your stores with us.  Hire out your items for a fee, or offer to loan or share your items to help stop the throw away culture. The site is part of the project, and is free for all.
