I love featuring eco-friendy, mamma owned business on my blog. growUPCYCLE is one of those truly green business from Fort Collins, Colorado. At growUPCYCLE they use "reloved clothing" and clean gently used material to create super unique designs. The term used is upcycling meaning to take something that would not be used anymore and make something new and improved with it. Isn't that a super neat idea?
All of their designs are handmade and one of a kind, so you really get a unique piece of clothing. I love that you can send them your own your gently used (stain free) onesies/shirts and receive $1 credit per item. Making it super affordable and environmentally friendly to get new clothes for baby! I mean I have so many onesies and shirts I can send that my son wore just once or twice and look brand new. You can also send in your own onesie/shirt to get upcycled and get a $5 credit.
I received my package for the review extremely fast after arranging the details! I love the packaging and just wanted to share a photo. I love little details like that.
I really like the design they created for our onesie as well. Very cool and unique! I love that you get a one of a kind design always! I have washed the onesie a couple of times since receiving it and I've had no problems with the applique. It is still looking great!
We are even thinking about sending in some of his white/plain colored onesies to get upcycled! Getting a truly unique personalized applique in some of his clothes would be great!
Win it: growUPCYCLE has generously offered one of my lucky readers in the US a chance to win one of their super unique onesis.
