Sustainable Sundays: Abounding Treasures

Upcyclers is a team of 1390 shops that are upcycling all over the world!
Upcycling is the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality and higher environmental value. 

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...
Autumn Melted Crayon Upcycled Art by Abounding Treasures 

Recycled crayons, glossy photo paper, and a special technique make up this gorgeous mixed media piece.  The 3D effect allows for shadows whenever natural or artificial light is shining.

Dallas at Abounding Treasures enjoys creating 3-D paper art and whimsical collages, especially for children. Check out her shop and see what else she does with recycled children's books!

Shop Stats:
Opened February 3rd, 2009
173 items for sale

It is always hard to pick one upcycled item from all our active shops each week! You can find more sustainable creations on Etsy by using our official team search tag: teamupcyclers when shopping.

Happy Upcycling until next week,
The Wooden Bee
