Upcycle, Recycle, Reuse

One thing that immediately caught my attention from my feature for this week was the name :) I jumped in excitement as I went through the shop looking at all the amazing little goodies. I hope you all will enjoy this wonderful shop and what it stands for! ! ! This week I'm featuring Upcyle, Recycle, Reuse on Etsy. Her shop is full of cute, exciting recycled goodies, I'm hoping to get a few things from URR soon!

Thank you cards
She has everything from thank you cards to hand bound journals, here is a bit about URR.

Upcycle, Recycle, Reuse is where old products are given more value not less. The goal of this shop is to prevent wasting potentially useful materials by making use of existing ones. This reduces the consumption of new raw materials when creating new products. Reducing the use of new raw materials can result in a reduction of energy usage, air pollution, water pollution and even greenhouse gas emissions. This Shop embraces Reuse and Upcycling converting waste materials into new materials or products of better quality or a higher environmental value.

I know a lot of you might agree with me how important it is to be eco friendly :) I try to be as conscious about what I reuse as often as I can, So when I find little shops like this one its like find a diamond in the rough! ! !

Here are are a few of my faves <3 Enjoy
Love this card
