Recycled Market is a Melbourne based online venue open to a global customer base of highly intelligent and caring people. People like, YOU! Recycled Market is a sustainable business that encourages buyers and sellers to reduce, reuse, redesign, refashion, rework and recycle as much as possible. Everything on their site is recycled and all the suppliers are recycling artisans and crafters.
How are they different to Etsy? Recycled Market is specialist: recycled only. Cornering a craft section of the LOHAS (Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability) market, this business is one to watch for sustainable growth and success.
I love them and I recommend them to anyone wanting to sell their recycled craft on-line, or buy unique and socially responsible items from across the globe. In fact, rather than offer our own e-commerce plug-in for The Junk Wave chapter owners around the country (home based recycled craft business), I have opted to use Recycled Market as my point of recommendation and on-line store referral to those chapter members who want to set up a shop as part of their business.
Co-founder, Erica Louise, is a delightful re-planted POM. A mother, a seamstress and an all round defender of the planet, Erica lives what she preaches: recycling. Erica also operates Recycled Fashion and hosts op-shop tours for Melbourne Op-Shop Tours. AMAZING!
Recycled Tours is hosting The Junk Wave's Bags, Beads and Bowls workshop in Melbourne (held at CERES, Brunswick East. Check out our Press Release about the Melbourne workshop). Come along to meet the wonderful Erica. To my absolute hearts content, the day before the workshop, I am attending an op-shop-tour of the Bayside area with Erica as my tour guide. What a blast it will be. Why don't you come and join us too?
