|I am sure many of you have heard the term “One man’s trash, is another mans treasure! Well that is what is now called Upcycling, where you take an old item and turn it into something completely different and new. Well that is the mode I am in right now, since I started checking out and following so many fun craft blogs, I have learned so much and having a GREAT time, I was told by our neighbors about this really cute little store that is right down the street from our house, called Ecocentricity, I knew that store have driven by it at least a million times but never stopped in, well after the neighbors gave it rave reviews and told me what she had in store I had to stop by.
Ms. Loral is totaly Eco friendly and so are most of the products in her little store, most items used to be something else totaly different and upcycled into something new and fun.
That edgy swedish artist upcycled 500 plastic water bottles into a chandelier.
Loral is having a creative reuse contest starting this Friday at 6:00.
Voting starts at our light rail party Friday night and continues through the following Friday. Watch for our photo album of entries so you can vote too!
You can also vote by stopping by the store and checking out the entries in person.
Ecocentricity was founded in 2009
