Earth Day is celebrated around the world every year on April 22nd. We celebrate the Earth year-around by doing what we can for the environment such as recycling, buying energy efficient appliances, teaching our kids about the environment and repurposing not only at home but in our business. Did you know that approximately 80% of our handmade jewelry is created from repurposed items? In case you did not know this we thought we’d share some photos to show you what we can do with vintage and repurposed treasures.
From left to right: Dream Bracelet, from our Literacy Kansas City Collection, made from a repurposed leather belt and a vintage spoon handle. Upcycled Guitar String Earrings from our Band of Angels Collection.
If you’d like to see more of our creations come and visit us at hangupsinkc.com. Our friends at Handmade in Kansas City are also featuring several locally handmade eco-friendly creations in their blog this week. Check them out at handmadeinkc.com – you’ll love what they have to offer.
We can all make a difference! We’d love to hear how you celebrate Earth, whether it’s on Earth Day or any other day.
