The Cherries Jubilee Cupcapron from Glue and Glitter is comprised of upcycled, recyled, and vintage materials -- and is ultra cute to boot!

The Eco Binder from UrbanPosture is practical, adorable, and 97% post consumer recycled from their state-what more could an organized girl want!

Patty

Love the "Lavendar and Lilac Pouch" from Pouch. Made from pieces of fabric salvaged from other projects it very much reminded me of the ingenuity of my grandmothers, who made amazingly beautiful clothes and lovely, practical household items from scraps of fabric.

Sarah

I visited TortillaGirl becuase I love her soft french lace bags, which are made from locally sourced materials.

Stephanie Carroll

Loving the well-versed purse from tarabu! Take an old book, recycle into a new accessory! Love.

nanouke

What a treat!!!
I'm in love with the lobsters shirt from Xenotees shop :)
It's an eco-friendly shop because all items are 100% cotton, "Made in the USA -sweat-shop free!", as Noelle says :)

nanouke

Oh and I tweeted about it:

i love the lace bags from tortillagirl....they're really cute. would be so nice for this summer...
and they're locally sourced materials! which is just fantastic!

Wehaf

I adore the Deep Purple Paper Garland from kristina.marie. It's reusable and recyclable, and all the packing materials are recycled.

tomoko

I visited Sparkle Power. I love Little Scalloped Flag Garland. It's made of vintage fabric.

Amy

I love the Recycled Silver and Glass earrings from Wired Originals. The materials are all recycled and she reuses her scraps too!

Kate

The Wyoming primitive barnwood birdhouse with recycled license plate roof at http://cosaverde.com/store/barnwood4u/5266/ is simply charming! It would look great in my backyard in San Luis Obispo, CA!

Wehaf

Elisa Shere's super bling ring is not only gorgeous, but made from 100% recycled materials using sustainable processes.

Wehaf

The beautiful reclaimed oak stool by peg and awl is made from repurposed, salvaged wood, saving space in a landfill and trees in a forest.

Wehaf

Pica pica's Emma necklace is a lovely example of repurposing - here old buttons are given new life as a beautiful piece of jewelry.

Kate

I would die for the Lichen Lavender Pincushion 4 from http://cosaverde.com/store/ottoman/5562/ ... and I'm not ever a sewer!! What a cute and whimsical way to store pins!

Kate

Sweet Tooth Lip Balm Trio from http://cosaverde.com/store/littlebatchbotanicals/4660/

I'll try not to eat them up...

Wehaf

The repurposed typewriter key earrings from swan river stone are charming and a great way to keep little bits and pieces out of a landfill. Every little bit helps.

Mia

I visited many of the stores but one that I fell for is bungaloe and the clutch "the broome street clutch in cream fleather". It is made from biodegradable material and handmade!

Sarah

Western Art Glass. I love that he uses recycled glass to make such nifty jewelry and mobiles. If I had to pick a favorite, which I'm not so good at, it would be the Elf Leaf and Seeds necklace.

Wehaf

Loglike graphics makes cool t-shits, with graphics like logs and sawbenches (my favorite!) using organic materials and sustainable processes.

Kate

Recycled Three Dimensional Paper Garland Made from Antique Sheet Music - 5 feet by http://cosaverde.com/store/kristinamarie/4016/

I've seen this shop before, featured on Modish! What a fantastic idea to recycle these things that just go in the trash. Beautiful.

Kate

ok, i know i've been going a little post crazy, but this is my last one, promise!

Forest Fawn Post Earrings by http://cosaverde.com/store/figsginger/1052/

Forest-y Charm. Amazing.

Melissa

I also really like pica pica's recycled purple scarf. Of course it's great and green because it's made from recyled materials!

Melissa

Melissa

Lastly, I like the Huckleberry lip balm..yay for green ingredients!

Wehaf

The 8 x 8 rustic barnwood frame from barnwood4u is gorgeous, and made from reclaimed wood.

Wehaf

I love the Brown Organic Linen 9-Patch Pocket Tote Bag from sheree's atelier. It is not only lovely, but made using sustainable processes and materials, including organic linen and cotton scraps.

Wehaf

I could wax poetic for days about tickled pink knits. Everything in the shop is lovely, and I want it all. But let's stick to the Jasmine Green Tea Shrug. It's gorgeous, the drape is lovely, and it would be incredibly flattering on just about anyone. It's also organic, vegan, handmade, conflict-free, and fair-trade. In other words, in every possible way it makes my progressive heart go pitter-patter. I'd better start saving my silver pennies, because I am sure this shrug is from fairyland.

Wehaf

Could the spring willow scarf from designs by erin be any more ethereal or lovely? I doubt it. And since it is made using sustainable materials and a sustainable process (handknitting) it could hardly be any more sustainable, either.

Wehaf

Who knew old recycled zippers could be so lovely? The Royal Blue and Brown Wrist Corsage made by megan leone from repurposed materials is absolutely charming and covetable.

Wehaf

The Ginkgo Leaf Mobile from western art glass could be straight from the 1920s, except that it is made from reclaimed bottle glass. Even though glass is easily recycled, much of it is thrown away instead; kudos to western art glass to salvaging beer bottles for their glass (and for using lead free solder).

Wehaf

Mitchell glasswork's smooshed Large Wine Bottle Cheese Plate is not only recycled, it is recyclable. So if it breaks, you can just toss it in the green bin and get another one. It's green forwards and backwards, and a great conversation piece. What's not to love?

simone

wow--what a great giveaway! I love the recycled scarves from pica pica! Also love the sweet cloth napkins from Sheree's Atelier. I'd love to switch my family from using paper towels and go totally cloth. Thanks for the lovely goodies.

Wehaf

ottoman's lovely stuffed mushroom pins not only would make sewing more fun and would be harder to lose, but being made of repurposed materials, they're earth friendly.

Wehaf

sparkle power's bouncy bunny softies are so charming they'll bring out the little kid in anyone. Made of vintage fabrics, they're hand embroidered for extra whimsy.

ann

What an awesome round up of talent. We live in a great time where such amazing artists can get this kind of exposure. If I had to pick one favorite, it would be the hymnal garland. It is so feminine and simplistic, I'd love to drape it over a soorway in my cottage!

Wehaf

This Hard Cover Journal with Ducklings makes me feel better about my lack of get-up-and-go in the morning. The fact that nicopapergoods made it partially from recycled children's clothes makes me feel better about the the world.

Wehaf

curlymonkey's Blue bird organic baby hat is not only 100% certified organic, but it's fair trade, too. So it's cute, good for the earth, and good for the earth's people.

Wehaf

Little Batch Botanicals' Sandalwood Fig Hand and Body Skin Cream sounds dreamy, not only because of the scent, but because it is vegan, paraben-free, cruelty-free, and comes and recyclable packaging.

Jori

pica pica's scarves are quirky and original, and made from recycled materials to boot!

Wehaf

This Lavender and lilac vintage fabric clothespin bag from pouch is made from vintage materials (not only the fabric, but the wooden hanger) and it will encourage you to use the clothesline instead of the dryer, saving energy and reducing your carbon footprint.

Danielle Vincent

I have fallen in love with the Kids Journal @ Nicopapergoods for the most simple reaso: my 2 and 1/2 year old loves drawing/painting/creating. I want to always promote that in her life. A fabulous handmade journal of her own is so dead on. Keeps her entertained with style without plugging in! Bonus = it is made from sourced childrens clothing as well as using eco friendly ways to put together a book. Well done!

erin

I'm a longtime admirer of Figs & Ginger's jewelry — and I didn't know til now that they use recycled silver and environmentally responsible alternatives. Awesome!

erin

Zuzu's stuffed animals are adorable — what a great way to reuse fabric scraps and encourage upcycling.

erin

Love xenotee's French Pet Lobster tee. And even better that the shirts are sweatshop-free!

Becky

First visit is to TortillaGirl-- my favorite is her Tuileries Linen Dress. I like that she used a natural fiber, and made it from locally sourced materials, which would save on the environmental impact of transporting the goods.

Becky

KristinaMarie this time--my favorite actually is the hymnal garland. I like that she was able to recycle a book that otherwise probably would have gotten tossed out. Plus it's got music printed all over it, and I have a definite bias to that since I'm a musician myself!

Nicole

I just tweeted about this cool giveaway! http://twitter.com/NicoleChow/status/12067761594

Becky

My favorite at Wired Originals is the Omega earrings--I love that it's recycled wire, and the style looks like it would go with just about anything!

Becky

And my favorite at Elisa Shere jewelry is the Rustic Teardrop necklace. It's recycled silver, and has a really great earthy look to it. (Last one for now, but I'll be back!)

Alisha

Woohoo! What an awesome giveaway. I visited Figs & Ginger, and my favorite piece was the adorable Nesting Necklace. It's eco-friendly because they make the pieces by hand using 50% recycled silver.

Malinda

this garland from kristina mari is really pretty:

Malinda

this shirt makes me very happy:

Meagan

Also love the Sustainable Cup Cozy with the Blue Oval design. Such and ingenious idea for saving on those cardboard cup holders or for having to double up you cups when they are too hot! cute to boot! I love that they are reversible to change it up now and then!
http://cosaverde.com/store/laurabuccihandmade/4068/

Meagan

I love this sweet softie wabbit named Lilly from chunkychooky. Made from upcycled curtains and corduroy scraps, they put the 'R' back in reuse, and its so refreshing to think of a baby cuddling up to something plush rather that something plastic! And such a cute design! Love it!!

tarabu

I tweeted this hours ago and have spent the intervening time daydreaming about knoxfarmfiber's homespun - yum!

Marcie

I also tweeted about this giveaway (I did a RT from the cosaverde twitter). My twitter name is MewkMakes.

Jennifer

I am in love with the Deep Purple Paper Garland from kristina.marie. It's my favorite color and from recycled material too.

Marcie

I visited Sparkle Power and my favorite item is the Little Scalloped Flag garland. I love this not only because it uses vintage fabrics, but also because it can be re-used over and over again. Most garland is paper and usually has to be tossed, but this you can keep for multiple occasions.

Jennifer

The Coco Couture headband from Odalis Petit Menagerie is adorable. Bows are too cute! It says it's shipped in a recyclable box.

Marcie

I visited Glue and Glitter and I LOVE the Cherries Jubilee Cupcapron. Adorable. She makes these from vintage and upcycled linens and recycled felt so I could feel good about purchasing one.

Jennifer

Forgot to mention that the shirts are made in USA, not made in sweat-shop conditions.

Marcie

Malcolm's Studio Shop has an amazing vntage jewelry box listed. He recovered it with a vintage scarf and button. Great idea.

Jennifer

The Petite Organic Charm from elisa shere jewelry is also simple, but very cute! It's made from repurposed silver.

Katie

Pica Pica has an awesome purple scarf that I have to have RIGHT NOW. I love that it's recycled from old tee shirts but still maintains a really balanced palette.

Jennifer

The Scary Fish of the Depths Candle is very cool! Peg and Awl uses 100% recycled materials and donates to charity.

Jennifer

I like the recycled scarves from Pica Pica. They're made from old tee shirts, but are still very stylish.

Jennifer

Love the Key Necklace from blackstar. It would be a great accessory to have. They're made from vintage materials.

Katie

The Lady Industrialist is my favorite at prix-prix. It's made from reused materials and it's conceptually interesting as well as pretty.

Jennifer

The Lady Industrialist necklace from prix-prix is very pretty, with the ribbon laced between the pearls. Made with repurposed materials.

Jennifer

The Rainbow Yarn Upcycled Round Bangle from swanriverstone reminds me of the friendship bracelets we used to make. Cute and 100% recycled materials.

Jennifer

pass go and collect $200 necklace from lookwhatimade is too cute! Reminds me of when we used to play Monopoly with my cousins. Made from recycled materials.

Jennifer

The Pigeon shirt from loglike graphics is cute! 100% organizic cotton and sustainable.

Ellie

Megan Leone's stuff just kicks ass in general, especially because it's all recycled materials.

My favorite thing from TortillaGirl is the Tuileries Sleeveless Linen Dress in indigo.

Suzie

Suzie

illuminated perfume--solid perfume minis. cute containers and many smells. It's organic.
