Earth Friendly Spotlight: Reduced, Reused or Recycled

Today we celebrate Earth Day and the final round up of eco-friendly, Connecticut made products.
 This collection features items that are made from re-purposed, up-cycled and/or sustainable materials.

Think Globally, Shop Locally!

Reduced, Reused or Recycled:


"Our candles are made from hand rolled sheets of 100% pure beeswax, which are natural, non-toxic, sustainable & renewable. Beeswax burns cleaner than paraffin candles and naturally give off a light, sweet honey scent without the addition of any fragrance oils. Available in pillars, tapers, and votives." - Scott owner of Little Bee

-----


"Petite textured studs handcrafted from recycled sterling silver and Moissanite (an Eco-friendly, sustainable diamond alternative)" - Erin owner of Erin Deluca Jewelry

-----


"If you love the stuff from the Burnt Shop but don't need anymore "stuff".... bring me your glass and wood pieces! I'm happy to add my original designs or something of your choosing to make your own treasured items that much more special." - Denise owner of The Burnt Shop

"Bamboo is a durable, sustainable and renewable resource. And as an added bonus the dense grain resists bacteria. My housewares are conditioned with food grade mineral oil and natural unbleached beeswax. The bright pops of color are hand painted using non-toxic water based paints and sealed with a naturally ocurring resin." Alonda owner of Designer Dwellings

-----


"All of the paper in our buttons and magnets are recycled and our notebooks and cards are all made from recycled paper and cardstock!" - Kelly owner of Our Secret Treehouse

-----


"The Silver clay that I use to make my jewelry is manufactured using recycled and reclaimed silver. The silver is from eyeglasses, photography supplies, industrial sources, utensils and from silver jewelry that has been turned in for reclamation." - Denise owner of InDee Designs
