Reduce, Reuse, Recycle......Can Be Beautiful!
As you know I am now donating a percentage of all my Etsy sales to The World Wildlife Fund. I also want to make small changes in my life to "reduce my carbon footprint..... BUT I want to make it fun also! :-)
So.....This is the first in a series of post I am going to do on fun green ideas. And it just so happens the first green idea is mine.
My jewelry is all about re-purposing, reusing what is already here, "reinventing vintage artifacts through modern means: looking towards the future for memory while drawing from the past for inspiration." And I feel my new line embodies this vision perfectly!
The re-purposed vintage tin necklaces are made from cast off cookie, biscuit, tea tins...even old discarded metal lunch boxes!
I would love to hear some of your green ideas!
