Sustainable Sundays: Altered Perceptions

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 1372 shops that are upcycling!

Each Sunday we feature a sustainable product from one Upcyclers shop that helped with the success of our team.

This week's featured shop and item...

Upcycled Cardboard Owl Wall Hanging with Customizable Sign from Altered Perceptions. I just loved their adorable rolled cardboard owls! Perfect for eco-friendly fall decorating!

James and Katie from Altered Perceptions, like challenging themselves to alter old or reused items into new, functional and aesthetic treasures. Check out their shop for more sustainable creations!
