Announcement   Hi-
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.

“Our personal consumer choices have ecological, social, and spiritual consequences. It is time to re-examine some of our deeply held notions that underlie our lifestyles.”

Welcome to Zero Impact. My goal is to create beautiful gifts without making an impact on the environment. We all love to buy and receive new things, but our consumption is having a devastating effect on the environment. Most of my items have been made using 100% upcycled materials. The goal of upcycling is to prevent wasting potentially useful materials by making use of existing ones. This reduces the consumption of new raw materials when creating new products. Reducing the use of new raw materials can result in a reduction of energy usage, air pollution, water pollution and even greenhouse gas emissions.
As a teacher and a mother, I feel that it is my responsibility to live and to craft in an environmentally friendly way.

Accepted payment methods

  • Money Order
  • Check
Payment
I will only accept paypal payments. If I don't receive your payment withing 4 days, I will cancel the sale
Shipping
All of my shipping materials will be upcycled. I don't see the point in using new materials when there are perfectly functional and attractive materials already available. I use paper bags to make an envelope and decorate your package using upcycled magazine photos.
All of my items will ship using standard Canada Post. If you want to upgrade your shipping, I will gladly do so. I am not looking to make money on shipping, so I will gladly refund your paypal account if, by mistake, I overcharge you.
Refunds and Exchanges
I am sure that you will be happy with your item, but I will not be able to accept refunds unless your item is damaged.
