With that being said I want to share one of my favorite Etsy Sellers with you! ArtTales is the screen name you'd look for over on http://www.etsy.com/ and adorable Upcycled Plushies are what you would be delighted to find.
If you aren't into searching for people via Etsy's search option just click here to go directly to ArtTales shop.
The plushies are playfully called LEFTZ (pronounced Le-ft-e's) and are eco-friendly plushies. Reading through her shop announcement you'll learn that the materials used are found in yard sales, thrift shops, and some come from family and friends. The adorable one eye is created out of vintage buttons and the animal itself is stuffed with plastic grocery bags.
One of these playful critters has even been nominated for Etsy's & The Daily Green's Trash to Treasure Celebration! I highly encourage you to vote for Peewee the Octopus! Click vote to help Peewee the Octopus win!
What better way to celebrate Earth Day than getting one of these absolutely adorable plushies for your bookshelf, they'd even make a cute addition to any end table. Because of the materials used to make these cuties they are not intended to a be a toy or to be used by children.
Make sure to read through the shop policies for all information on shipping, payment, etc. Oh and before I end this blog, I want to share my favorite LEFTZ plushie with you all!Thanks as always for swingin' by and checking out what we've got going on today! Everyone have a rockin' week! Earth Day is right around the corner, it's a reminder to be conscious about what we do and the impact it may have. Try recycling for the first time if you haven't, or plant a tree or a patio garden!
