It's our First Anniversary!
Woohoo! Upcyclers is one year old! And what a year it's been! We have 1468 members on our team, 1,130 Facebook fans, 815 Twitter followers and 491 followers on our blog!
And this is just the beginning! We have big plans for our next year~ and all of the ones to come! We hope you'll stay with us and enjoy the adventure!
As a thanks to all of you~ we are having an amazing giveaway from the Fisher Cat Fiber Co. ~ a handcrafted, upcycled woven plarn rug! Created in the spirit of reducing, reusing and recycling, FCFC products are recycled, scrap, salvaged or earth friendly fibers. Although a wide selection of yarns for knitting and felting are available, Fisher Cat prefers to use wool yarns and fibers from local sheep farmers and spinners. Many of their yarns are hand dyed with local flowers and plants. Plastic bags are woven on a traditional Union rug loom from the 40's that gives the appearance of rag rugs. This 2x3' rug will be a uniquely designed, one of a kind Fisher Cat original!
It's fantastic to imagine these gorgeous rugs are made from plastic bags! Annie uses approximately 80 bags to create a rug this size. That's a lot of bags that won't end up in a landfill. Or worse, floating around aimlessly on the planet waiting to wreak havoc on wildlife! And that's why we are celebrating our anniversary! One year of efforts made by Upcyclers to reduce waste and make the world a little prettier while we're at it!
