Lou's Upcycles  is committed to upcycling; creating new, functional pieces of wearable art sprouting from un-recyclable plastic packaging. All accessories are made from a trashion textile created from un-recyclable, post consumer plastic bags and wrappers. Through her work, Lou has kept over 20,000 bags out of the landfill by turning them into a sturdy, fun, graphically appealing fabric. 99.99% of each of her creation’s materials have been diverted from landfills including neck ties, internal fabrics, and hardware. Each bag is a one of a kind, upcycled creation.
