With Earth Day approaching on Saturday, April 22nd, it is time to showcase our makers who use recycled materials in their work.
|Recycled Fabric rescued from an Interior Designer studio before it hit the trash bin.|
This stylish handbag was designed and sewn by Margaret Mousley
|Naturally Unique Rock is saving Earth's fresh water--one cube at a time. These Whisky Rocks are cut from waste granite from a countertop supplier in the St. Cloud area.|
|Would you believe this is made with strips of recycled blue plastic bags? Susie B Handicraft crafted this all-season wreath. Think of all the bags saved from the landfill with this!|
|Gemnorde created this WaterSky statement necklace, taking it's inspiration from the Earth, is made of 90% recycled vintage beads, rhinestones and jewelry findings.|
|Regan's Brain says this pillow fabric is made from recycled plastic bottles! What a great decor statement piece.|
|This reusable travel mug replaces paper cups and plastic bottles. It's also constructed out of recycled oak by Just Turned. It's a win win.|
|These mini journals by Sharon's Compedium are made with a mix of upcycled and recycled materials. They're so tiny because the strips of paper are from other projects and the covers are from packaging. This one is made from a box of Yorkshire tea.|
|From scraps to scrumptious, these tiny metal dangles have been recycled into swinging earrings. Ejoy from Metaling Susie!|
|Cloth napkins are reusable and limit paper waste in your kitchen. Shaggy Baggy offers a variety of styles in her Etsy shop.|
