great green-ies: 2Revert

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 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!

turning skateboards into jewellry? brilliant! 2ReVert, husband & wife duo Jann & Jeff from lovely lovely Nova Scotia, light up the recycling world with their edgy, sporty & definitive restyled jewelry. each piece is handcrafted & recycled from well-loved, post-consumer skateboards! I just love their use of smooth shapes, & great use of colour in their work! brilliant!

and right now – you can help them celebrate their 1st year Etsy Anniversary! they're offering free shipping worldwide on everthing in their etsy shop! and visit their blog thru saturday for chances to win a 2Revert prize pack valued at $200.00! wow!

and here’s 2ReVert’s eco tip:

"2ReVert has a simple eco tip that only takes 20 minutes... watch the "Story of Stuff" by Annie Leonard. It's very educational and great for all ages. We thought we were pretty "green" but after watching this video we've become much more conscience of what we purchase. Starting with "reduce" is a great way of life."


many thanks, 2ReVert! great tip!
have someone you'd like to nominate for a rikrak studio blog great green-ie feature?
