Recycled Soothing Rice Bags

Recycled Soothing Rice Bags

Recycled Soothing Rice Bags

My favorite recycled gift store is at it again! Great Recycled Gifts has Recycled Soothing Rice Bags that are made right here in the U.S.A. If you have ever tried a rice bag they are perfect for every little ache and pain. Either put them in the microwave or freezer depending on what hurts and where. They last forever if taken care of properly and are much more soothing than popping a pill!

Product Description:
Made in the USA with recycled vintage fabrics, they are truly the perfect solution for life’s aches and pains, or just to pamper yourself after a long, hard day at the office. Pop it into the microwave for 30 to 60 seconds or keep them in the freezer for great cold therapy… they mold to any body part with comfort.
Each rice bag is double-lined for durability and comes with detailed instructions. Two different patterns of vintage fabric are found on each bag and due to the recycled nature, we are not able to guarantee a pattern.

Recycled Paper Earrings

Recycled Paper Earrings

Recycled Paper Earrings

I know I have been featuring alot of jewelry lately but I cannot help myself. I am in the Valentine’s spirit! On a semi-serious note accessories are a part of many women’s daily lives and sometimes recycled accessories are outrageously over priced just becuase accessories are said to be  organic, reclaimed, recycled, reused or repurposed. That is no excuse to be over priced. Personally, I think if we are purchasing recycled, reclaimed or repurposed products shouldn’t they be less because 1. We are doing our part and 2. These aren’t necessarily brand new products. This isn’t to say that the charities many of these purchases donate to or that many of these accessories are handmadeisn’t worth the extra money.  I feel high prices deter people from making the responsible choice.  These beautiful paper earrings are amazing and only $12.00!! GreatRecycledGifts.comis becoming my favorite place to shop for everything!

Product Description:

It is hard to believe that these colorful earrings were once a stack of discarded magazines and newspapers!
Each “flower” set is made by hand in Cambodia providing fair, ethical and sustainable livelihoods for some of the regions poorest people.
Each pair is cut out, folded and assembled – then coated and attached to earring wires. Delicate and beautiful… you’ll receive compliments wherever you go! Each pair is different and a true original. The Earrings come in Blue, Green, Red & Yellow.
