Everything Old Is New Again With Repurposed Accessories

by Courtney Bissonette

In the words of Peter Allen, “Everything old is new again!” Reclaim is the name, and upcycling is the game. As we all know, upcycling not only looks great, but helps create less garbage, thus minimizing environmental impact significantly more than recycling alone.  And let’s be honest, it just looks cool. We’ve put together a list of  the coolest repurposed products that will help revamp — not cramp — your ethical ambiance.  You can find online or in person at BUST’s upcoming Spring Craftacular in LA on Saturday, May 7th
