Recycled Market Going Live!

Thank you readers, for your patience over the past few months.  We are pleased to announce that we anticipate Recycled Market to go live on Monday, ready for sellers to start listing their recycled products for sale.  All product listings will be completely free.

What is Recycled Market?

Recycled Market is a unique online venue that encourages buyers and sellers to reduce, reuse, redesign, refashion, rework and recycle as much as possible. We are a are global marketplace focused on showcasing stylish handmade and ethically manufactured pieces made from recycled materials. Our aim is to offer a wide range of recycled products, ranging from readjusted clothing, upcyled jewellery, accessories, through to artwork, toys, homewares and gifts, created from recycled or reclaimed material, supplies needed to produce recycled goods, patterns, tutorials, and so much more. Recycled Market showcases independent artisan’s creative, exclusive eco-design.

Recycled Market:
  • Promotes and sells handmade, and ethically manufactured recycled products
  • Encourages artisans to utilise recycled materials
  • Offers consumers the chance to purchase unique products which are friendly to our planet

 “We are constantly bombarded with advertisements encouraging our thirst to spend money on new products, utilising new resources. A consumer can make a difference by choosing to buy environmentally sound products; goods that are created using materials already in circulation” Erica, Recycled Market, 2011

“Our vision is for individuals to choose recycled before new”  Lester, Recycled Market, 2011

Recycled Market exists to advertise goods made from materials that may otherwise unnecessarily end in landfill. For some facts about consumption and disposal, we would highly recommend watching The Story Of Stuff by Annie Leonard

We have approached a handful of sellers to start building our product base, but we welcome new requests.

If you wish to know more information or have any specific questions, please do not hesitate to contact us

Thank you, we look forward to welcoming you to Recycled Market!
