Up-Cycled: Earth-friendly art, accessories and gifts

Posted April 13th, 2016

Global Gifts is an all-volunteer run store with handmade gifts and modern folk art from around the world.  Formerly located on Western Avenue, the shop has been located in San Pedro for more than 40 years.  Every sale raises money for UNICEF, and whenever possible they purchase their items from Fair Trade organizations or from the artists themselves.

For a variety of reasons, artists in developing countries often have access to new excess material and can get creative with these found objects.  This has resulted in clever and unique items that aren’t just beautiful and useful, and also good for the planet by giving waste manufacturing products out of landfills and oceans. Here’s just a sampling of the clever and creative up-cycled gifts and accessories to celebrate Earth Day!

Bring Your Own Container for Personalized Succulents

Pam and Denise from Inside Outside Unique Designs are masters of sensational succulents and tremendous topiaries. And now they are offering a brand new way to make their art more personal.  Bring in your favorite container and they will craft a succulent or topiary that is especially for you. Maybe you have a favorite little cup that is cracked but you can’t bring yourself to throw it out…or perhaps your great grandfather’s tobacco tin is just getting dusty. Give your treasures new life with a little creativity.
