Upcycled Art Not Just The Next Green Thing

Up cycled art is becoming more popular with home crafters and the environmentally conscious. Creative entrepreneurs, home crafters and artisans are making a business out of turning re-usable fabrics, ribbons, laces and everyday household objects destined for the landfill into decorative reusable items for the home, garden and more.

If art imitates life then this trend bodes well for the green movement and also seems to be calling attention to the end of the crazy consumerism that has characterized American society since the industrial revolution.  Going green is not just about recycling tin cans and changing your type of light bulbs. It's a trend in jewelry, home decor and art, a definite shift in our way of thinking. To quote a very famous Martha,  "That's a good thing."


  1. Just popped over from the Upcyclers Facebook page. I love your blog and I'm looking forward to reading more of what you have to say. And I hope hope hope that our crazy consumerism is coming to an end!

  2. Thanks Gena, I couldn't agree with you more on the consumerism. It's disturbing the amount of waste the human race creates. Look forward to talking with you again. Have a great day!
