great green-ies: miss courageous

greening.... i find it exciting and hopeful that while there sure are lots of terrible things going on to pollute & harm our planet, there are so many wonderful folks doing fabulous things to help make the world a greener, healthier place! so, the rikrak studio is happy to feature great green-ies : snapshots of amazing, inspiring. eco-forward-thinking folks & groups from all sorts of fields and paths in the greening movement. some inspire by greening at home, or in their business; in their art or the larger world, or on many levels at once! i've asked each green-ie to suggest an easy eco-idea or tip we might all be able to add to our daily lives. today i'm honoured to present the next in this series!


record vinyl inlay belt buckle by the fabulous miss courageous

need an infusion of something fabulous, funky, eco-forward and stylish into your glorious wardrobe this season? look no further!

the wonderful, talented, ever-friendly millie of the shops miss courageous (pop jewelry & accessories) & buckle up is a brilliant recycler that has something stylish & fashionable for everyone! i just love her amazing belt buckles, made from inlayed record vinyl or upcycled jelly jar lid buckles. and i adore her record vinyl necklaces! what a great conversation piece her accessories would be!

so be sure to stop by her lovely shops, and follow her wonderful, fun & trashion-forward tweets on twitter! let's support upcycling artists whenever we can!

and here's millie's eco.tip!

"My tip is to re-use. If you can't there's probably an artist out there that can. For instance, I don't sew but I do swap supplies with fellow etsians. They give me jar lids & bottle caps, I give them old clothes to re-sew."


thanks so much, millie!
& there's still today to enter my eco.coasters giveaway! find it here! yay recycling!
