Sustainable Sundays: colorstory designs

Upcycling is the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality and higher environmental value.

Upcyclers is a team on Etsy made up of 1358 shops that are upcycling!

Each Sunday we are going to feature a sustainable product from one Upcyclers shop that was active in our team's weekly conversations.

This week's featured item...
a gorgeous votive candle holder made with recycled magazines by colorstory designs!

The rolled magazines allow the light to bounce out
and playfully decorate your surface!

colorstory designs is the collaborative work of designers Amy Gibson and Andrea Read. An Upcyclers shop seeking to create a positive environmental impact with their work, by developing a unique method of collecting and repurposing discarded magazines and other paper products.
