From this point we started researching waste streams - ”What was being discarded that could be transformed into something new”. This lead to the development of various product lines which has resulted in the creation of recycling programs, education and inspiration, green jobs, and most importantly, choices for Earth Conscious Consumers.

From it's grass roots efforts, It's Our Earth has been a pioneer in the Green Movement, and continues to develop new and innovative products for this market.

Richard & Xristina still craft many of the items that It's Our Earth sells and make them available here on Etsy.
