Crafty Corner has perfected the art of making unique recycled gifts – both personal ones and large numbers of corporate ones. Many businesses have turned to Crafty Corner to create beautiful and functional recycled gifts (please see the "Commissions" page. There are several reasons why individuals and corporations alike have chosen Crafty Corner - aside from the fact that the creative minds at Crafty Corner have honed the skill of envisioning and then creating enchanting gifts!
It takes a mind shift for most people to view what is traditionally called 'waste,' 'rubbish' and 'trash' as something with value and potential. But with the right open-minded view and of course some creative skills just about everything deemed disposable can be repurposed into something useful and aesthetically pleasing. For example, Crafty Corner has made beautiful key rings from recycled glass beads, funky boxes made from recycled tin and unique book marks made from leftover wire and recycled beads, to name only a few Upcycled projects!
Corporate and individual Upcycled gifts provide an excellent opportunity for the upliftment of the community. Crafty Corner is closely involved with social entrepeneur projects in which impoverished individuals are given the chance and support necessary to earn a living by creating these eco-friendly treasures.
Recycling is an excellent habit to foster, however, Upcycling can be an even better option as the process of recycling does still require some energy. The Upcycled gifts that are created by Crafty Corner are naturally eco-friendly as 'waste' is repurposed and so our landfills are saved from being further inundated! Not only does this eco-friendliness help in the fight for our planet's survival but it also offers positive and topical PR for the businesses that choose to recruit Crafty Corner. Fortunately, being 'Green' has become trendy and a company will undoubtedly enjoy positive publicity from supporting social upliftment endeavours as well as encouraging further awareness about the environment!

First, I’m going to detail a few of the economic benefits and will follow this up with some environmental benefits (just for all the “greenies” out there).
So, as you can see, recycling makes sense from both an economic and environmental perspective, without even going into the fun that can be had by utilizing recycled goods in a creative manner. In the coming weeks I intend to focus more on this aspect, along with providing indications of which household “junk” is recyclable, where it can be recycled and what you could end up saving and gaining by practising it.
