What do most people do with old, damaged and broken goods? Throw them out and buy new ones. But not the folks at Resource Revival
, who turn broken bike bits into tea-light holders
. Same goes for Jeff Davis, founder of Vinylux
, who transforms discarded vinyl records into bowls
We wish we could highlight all the inventive designers doing their part to upcycle, but there are just too many creative souls out there. Luckily, Elsewares
, a NYC-based online emporium for modern goods from independent designers and artists, has gathered many of them in one place.
And in light of Earth Day's upcoming anniversary, Elsewares will sell all its recycled home goods to RentedSpaces readers at an exclusive discount!
Founded by Brooklynites Ryan Deussing and Audrey Aponte in 2004, Elsewares introduces a network of innovative designers, artists and entrepreneurs who focus on environmental sustainability. Products range from jewelry and clothes to plush toys and home goods, with the majority of products selling for under $50! The tea-light holders, made from bicycle freewheels and cogs, sells for only $12.99
and a set of six vintage-record coasters costs a mere 20 bucks
Audrey and Ryan always offer special discounts on Elsewares' Facebook fan page
and have put a lot of their items on sale
