All my map and chart books use vintage maps and charts so probably upcycled rather than recycled?

Hi! I’m a new seller and new to the forum - and especially pleased to see this thread. All my stuff is made from salvaged, left over, recycled, found or natural materials. I’ve just started listing in my new shop - what fun! More to come. I won’t clog the forum with pics - but just wanted folk to know I’m happy to have found a bunch of like-minded eco-makers! Julie

Hi Julie!

As this is a “showcase” thread, you are totally welcome to post as many pics and links as you like! I would love to see some of your items on this thread when you have an opportunity :evergreen_tree::evergreen_tree::deciduous_tree:

Great to find so many people trying to reduce our environmental impact. I make cards (both prints and original artwork) with recycled paper and envelopes and offer a free personalised message inside with delivery straight to the recipient to reduce the transport distances. Couple of examples below and lots more on the shop! Anyone got any ideas for eco-friendly printing inks??

The shop makes jewellery from recycled paper and priceeds support a shelter for homeless people.

Thanks Samantha! I’ve just been adding some stuff - and then looking for a place to ask my question - maybe in another part of the forum? Problem is - I don’t know how to categorise my hip bags and hip pouches. There are a couple of options - but there’s nothing that suits them really - not sleeves, bags, cases etc What do you think? thank you. Julie
