Activist Art Created by Ethical Vegans

Upcycle Cascadia was born out of a desire to ethically source clothing and art that promotes social justice and positive change. Utilizing a variety of art mediums, gently used clothes are upcycled into one of a kind statements that can be purchased in good conscience. Screen printed designs support different causes with a portion of their sale and every item is completely vegan, made by ethical vegans. Our activist art can be worn by the whole family and we strive to keep sizes and styles of all kinds in stock.

We believe in the strength and goodness of Cascadia and keep our support local. We donate portions of sales to animal sanctuaries, education projects, political campaigns and of course, the Cascadia Now! movement. While our printed designs rotate through the store based on what is current and urgent, our tie dye Doug Flag designs and Cascadia prints are a constant.

Most things in the shop are second hand sourced and all styles are created in an ethical vegan workshop so you can be assured that nothing is harmed in the making of these products. Because we upcycle and never know what will come up next, the variety of sizes, brands and styles are unpredictable and everything is pre-made and ready to ship. We will always post the fabric blend if available, sometimes tags are missing and we'll be sure to provide that information. Most items have been pre loved and shrunk before making their way through the Upcycle Cascadia studio. If you are unsure if something will fit, please send us a message so we can get exact measurements for you to compare against your favorite pieces already in your closet. If you have an idea for a custom order, send us a message and we might be able to work something out.

Designed in 1994 by Portland native Alexandre Baretich, the blue of the flag represents the moisture-rich sky above, and the Pacific Ocean, along with the Salish Sea, lakes, and inland waters. Our home is a place of continuous cascading waters flowing from the Pacific to the western slopes of the Rockies and Cascades where water cycles back to the Pacific. The white represents snow and clouds, and the green represents the evergreen forests and fields of the Pacific Northwest. The lone-standing Douglas Fir symbolizes endurance, defiance, and resilience. All these symbols come together to symbolize what being Cascadian is all about.
