This post is not about a new recycling idea but about a new website that should be known by our lectors! This site is called “Recycled Market” and it is a unique online venue that encourages buyers and sellers to reduce, reuse, redesign, refashion, rework and recycle as much as possible. Recycled Market is a global marketplace focused on showcasing stylish handmade and ethically manufactured pieces made from recycled materials. Their aim is to offer a wide range of recycled products, ranging from readjusted clothing, upcycled jewellery, accessories, through to artwork, toys, homewares and gifts, created from recycled or reclaimed material, supplies needed to produce recycled goods, patterns, tutorials, and so much more. Recycled Market showcases independent artisan’s creative, exclusive eco-design.
- Promotes and sells handmade, and ethically manufactured recycled products
- Encourages artisans to utilise recycled materials
- Offers consumers the chance to purchase unique products which are friendly to our planet
“We are constantly bombarded with advertisements encouraging our thirst to spend money on new products, utilising new resources. A consumer can make a difference by choosing to buy environmentally sound products; goods that are created using materials already in circulation” Erica, Recycled Market, 2011
