Hello - welcome to The Recycling Ethic. Our passion is for original, one-of-a-kind art pieces from unknown and little known artists from the mid 20th century in California, bringing old works of art to new homes.

If you're looking for works by a particular artist or a particular kind of art to complement your living space, please message us with details. We're often finding unique pieces, and would love to help you shape the look of a room at home, an office space, or an outdoor garden wall.

Personal delivery available in and around California for large and fragile pieces that need extra attention. If you're interested in personal delivery, please message us before purchasing with your location and time frame. We also offer pick up in Central California and worldwide shipping.

Combined shipping is available - please message us with the items you're interested in and we'll send you a personalized quote.

Thanks for stopping by,

The Recycling Ethic
