Recycled, Up-cycled and More!

The more I search Etsy, the more I’m amazed with the products that our crafty Etsy sellers come up with. Today, I wanted to showcase some finds that feature recycled and upcycled objects – Something that everyone can benefit from! Recycling takes a little extra time out of your day, but it’s completely worth it… Did you know… If every American recycled just one-tenth of their newspapers, we could save about 25 million trees each year? (According to DoSomething.Org) That’s amazing!

Let’s take a look at some of the creative and inventive recycled, up-cycled and eco-friendly products our lovely Etsy friends have to offer. ­čÖé
