Recycled treasures from Etsy

There was a time when I thought anything recycled would be something horrible, dainty and looked used, doesn’t sound too appealing does it? However, as we the human race is generating so much waste and depleting natural resources we are forced to make the ‘old things’ count. In the past couple of years, I’ve seen so many excellent creations which have used recycled or sustainable making technique and really want to support this craft! Here I have compiled a list of items on the Etsy which are recycled or made in a sustainable way. Have a look at each products seller as well and you might just find something even more incredible!!

I mean look at these creations, would you think even for a second that they were recycled? I wouldn’t! I am especially in love with the acrylic lamp, which is sold out, but it is just gorgeous! And the candles are on my shopping wish list just now! Also, the recycled wrapping paper made me really excited!!

 

Have you seen any beautiful recycled or sustainable creations?

Natures treasures – Etsy finds

Even though the lovely UK climate doesn’t always show the best of our spring, it is still in our hearts (read it is cold and windy today!). The cherry trees are blooming and the birdsong wakes us up nicely in the morning. Nature is all around us and it provides us with a refreshed sense of living and beauty. To celebrate this I collected some items inspired by nature or made out of nature’s supplies from the Etsy. Go and have a look, there are some truly amazing handmade items there! I especially like soy wax candle, as I am on a lookout for a more sustainable candle to cozy up to and the beautiful wooden items!
