Our world has it’s own very limited supply of “goods”, and one day- we might find ourselves in a dying planet, with no resources. The high increase in consumerism is a big part of that- people constantly buy things they don’t need, things that hurt our environment and end up not even using them! However, some brilliant men and women accross our planet choose differently- they choose to make/buy only items that are re-purposed, or up-cycled… Meaning- items that are made from a previous item in a different form.
You might think that these items are dirty or in poor quality- but the truth is that some people out there have learned to take used items and materials and transform them into something else- with perfection! Such people are the 3 sisters who own 3greensisters Etsy store.
Suzanne Kinavey from Oregon, and her 2 sisters- design, cut and sew their store’s products using up-cycled and re-purposed fabrics. The create beautiful table linen, knitting bags, yoga bags, everyday bags, and purses, using fabrics which have had a prior life or destined for landfill. These 3 sisters truly form a “green” company and believe it or not- this family business has been around, in various forms, for the past 124 years- as the 3 sisters come from a line of seamstresses that goes 3 generations back!
However, don’t take my word for it- see for yourselves what amazing items you could find in the 3greensisters Etsy store: (It was hard for me to choose since they have over 500!!)
