Keepin’ it Green: Lou’s Upcycles

So I have been personally been trying to reuse and waste less, but with the way some foods are packaged, it’s so hard to do! That is, until I met Lou, from Lou’s Upcycles this past weekend at the Twist Fair in Northampton!

Check out this shower curtain! It is made from plastic packaging and has a smooth texture great to take the green theme to the next level.

From wallets, to baby bibs, to purses, Lou receives materials from all over the place, even providing a discount to Twist attendees that brought her their plastic packaging! Lou does put a disclaimer on her Etsy shop that shows her true commitment to upcycling, “STOP using plastic. put me out of business. thank you”This zip wallet caught my eye, and Lou explained to me that this is a piece where she uses all of her scrap plastic and that nothing goes to waste! I have started collecting my plastic packaging and as long as there is plastic, Lou will be making great accessories! Check out Lou’s blog and Etsy shop!
