I use recycled wood to make clocks, switch plates, coasters, earrings. I also make night lights with recycled plastic and greeting cards from recycled paper. I use the materials for backing of each particular item. I get the wood from a recycled wood from Salvaged Works in Portland. The plastic I get from different sources. The paper mill store is where I get my recycled paper. I feel recycled material helps enhance my art work as well as being good for the environment.
