Hey friends, sorry we haven’t been blogging like crazy, the shop has been ridiculously busy the past 2 months between getting press from all corners of the world, to broken umbrellas coming in left and right and orders piling up all over!

Hey, I’m not complaining! I love that upcycling is catching on and people are loving it!

Just wanted to let you all know that HerCatwalk, a super sassy fashion site that I’ve recently become somewhat addicted to is giving away one of our HOODs for FREE! Go win it! NOW!

And keep sending in your broken umbrellas!

Shoot me an alchemy request to make a custom product!

 

Perfect day for a HOOD!

Well Philadelphia, it’s MISTING, which means it’s not wet enough to carry an umbrella, but just over the line where your hair goes from manageable in a ponytail to uncontrollable frizz ball. And you know it always mists when we have something to do, so how can we live, ladies?!

Oh that’s right- with a HOOD from Recycling Zychal! I’m wore mine to go to the post office today and was stopped by 2 separate and, might I add, stylish women on my way, who all loved the convenience of the HOOD and wanted to know where they could buy one. I was out of business cards, so I wrote down my website with a code for 20% off a HOOD if they purchased one before the end of the week.

A grey, misty day calls for a brown dress and a HOOD

I wanted to be sure I extended the offer to you all as well!

Enter this special code in when you place your order for a 20% off discount: AQUANET1989

Photos from our outing with Urban Outfitters!

Recycling Zychal's set up for the Go Green Market at Urban Outfitters HQ, what a beautiful piece of wood!

Last Thursday, on Earth Day, which is also Recycling Zychal’s birthday, we were invited to Urban Outfitters Headquarters as a guest artist to show off our Upcycled Umbrella goods at their Go Green Craft Market! Not only was the facility absolutely beautiful, but we made a ton of new friends and might even be doing a Flora Fauna Function Program at Urban where bins will be set up around the entrances for employees to donate their broken umbrellas to us, how cool is that!?

I wanted to share some photos with you guys from the event, which, in my eyes, was truly successful! We sold out of our Organic Cat Nip Filled Upcycled Umbrella Cat Toys and I am proud to announce the winner of our Upcycled Umbrella Dog Coat Raffle is Lindsey Reisser, an employee at Urban Outfitters! She will be getting a fully customized Upcycled Umbrella Dog Coat exclusively made for her pup!
Congrats Lindsey!
