Welcome to our store!
Great Recycled Gifts is a different type of a gift company… everything we offer is made from something that was destined for the garbage or landfill. From broken furniture to stacks of old comic books… it was hasta la vista, adios and ... goodbye!
We’d say that our gifts are recycled ... NOT "re-gifted" like those tacky presents from Aunt Mabel that are passed around time and time again.
Nope… nothing here is mass-produced and every product has its own story!
Who creates our products?
We work with small companies and coops that are committed to creating the unusual while leaving the smallest environmental footprint possible.
Most are right here in North America.. creative, dedicated (and some might say.. crazy) artisans that work with the "stuff" we all throw away. You've got to hand it to them... that's infinitely harder than hitting the local art supply store!
Other products are made in Fair Trade coops overseas by individuals and organizations with talent, looking to improve their economic reality. There's no big Michael's Superstores there!
Not only are you supporting the recycling of discarded items, but by purchasing their products, you are truly making a difference in people's lives...
Our hope is...
That you’ll be amazed at the ingenuity and creativity that goes into the products we offer.
Take your time... browse through the different categories and products! See if you can guess what they are made from?
Not only is it fun... but you are certain to find a totally original and environmentally fabulous gift for everyone on your list... including yourself!
