Today’s fabulous “your pick” comes from Rachel, the owner of Green Envy Eco-Boutique in Newport, RI. Everything sold in Rachel’s shop is either organic, fair trade, or eco-friendly, so naturally she love to create things using discarded and upcycled materials. One of Rachel’s favorite items are these bracelets she created using reclaimed neckties and vintage buttons.
Rachel shares the story of how she arrived at the idea for her neck tie bracelets,
“Each bracelet is completely one of a kind. Other pieces of the ties are used to create stretch headbands and pouches for coins or cell phones. I started making them because a customer donated about 100 of her husbands ties since he has just retired. I stared at them for a couple of days before the bracelet idea struck me. Now they’re a best seller at Green Envy. We get a lot of donations of odds and ends from customers who would rather not throw away their unwanted items…”
What a wonderful way to save eliminate waste & upcycle discarded ties! Keep up the good work Rachel!
