4 Upcycled Stores to Shop From
You can splurge without the environmental guilt!
Admit it—shopping is fun. Whether you splurge on clothes, shoes, or bags, shopping makes you feel good. And for those who love to decorate and improve their homes, nothing can sound better than hearing your favorite home stores going on sale.
But aside from discounts and clearance sales, another thing that can make shopping fun is buying upcycled pieces. Not only do you take home a new chair or table, you also get to help a group of people carry on with their green practice of using scrap materials in order to produce their pieces. Now, are you ready to shop? Check these stores out:
1. Junk Not!
Junk Not! Eco-Creatives Initiatives produces items made from scrap materials like old newspapers and magazines, foil packs, and plastic wrappers, to name a few. These are used to make bags, slippers, and items for the home like newspaper baskets and placemats.

2. Upcycle Manila
Upcycle Manila spruces up old furniture pieces by reupholstering them (for seating pieces) and refurbishing or breathing new life into them. They use different kinds of materials like metal and reclaimed wood. They also make bespoke furniture, but you can buy ready-made pieces at Stall CB-90, 2/L Bldg. C., Tiendesitas, Pasig City.
