For the Registry: Eco-Friendly Bowls

Something to add to the registry, perhaps!? You'd be surprised as to how much personality a simple bowl can add to a kitchen island or bland tabletop. My husband and I searched forever before settling on this handmade ceramic one, found at a local gallery. The ones above though are actually upcycled (I love that word) from old vinyl records. Not sure how this gal does it, but the intricate painting technique on the organic design is really quite unique! Purchase at Eye Pop Art on Makers Market.

Recycled Inspiration: Make Online recently held a "Save Our Oceans" contest where people were encouraged to submit upcycled plastic projects. Check out some of the submissions!

It looks very unique and awesome and the best part that it is hand made and eco friendly.This is a very right time to start thinking about the earth and start promote such purchases.

What a cool idea. And I love the way the look. I really like the blue blue with the white design. It would look great on my dining room table with some flowers or fruit placed in it.
