zeroimpact's Shop Announcement

Welcome to Zero Impact. I am a mother and a part-time teacher who tries to find enough time in everyday to get some crafting done. I am dedicated to minimizing my impact on the environment. My items are upcycled and are all entirely unique. Upcycling or re-purposing means to take otherwise useless items and make them useful again. I carefully select all of my wool sweaters at thrift shops or church basement sales and felt them with a very high heat wash, so even though they are used, they are 100%clean.

I took a break from Etsy for awhile and was selling my work on consignment and at craft fairs, but am back to try tgis out again.

I will happily gift wrap your item using upcycled brown paper, jute string, and recycled wool. Please just make a comment to the seller when you place your order.

I love the idea that my shop will not only be able to showcase some of my work, but that it will ultimately benefit the environment as well.

By buying upcycled products you not only reduce waste, but reduce energy and raw material consumption. It is a necessary and conscienscious choice to shop with the environment in mind.
