Celebrating Earth Day: UPAVIM's Journey Towards Environmental Sustainability

As the world unites to commemorate Earth Day, we at UPAVIM Crafts are proud to share our commitment to environmental sustainability. Through a variety of initiatives, we strive to minimize our ecological footprint while crafting products that are not only stylish but also eco-conscious. Join us as we delve into our sustainability efforts and the impact they have on our community and planet.

Crafting with Care and Conscience: Upcycled Denim Products 🌿

At the heart of our sustainability journey lies our collection of Upcycled Denim products. Crafted with care and conscience, these items offer a blend of style and functionality for every home and storefront. From durable aprons to chic coasters and charming pot holders, each piece embodies the spirit of sustainability and ethical production.

Our kitchen products go beyond mere functionality; they are designed with environmental consciousness in mind. Not only are they absorbent and practical, but they also contribute to reducing waste and promoting a greener lifestyle by minimizing the need for single-use materials. Additionally, our fiber shawls add a touch of eco-friendly elegance to any outfit, proving that sustainability can be synonymous with style.

Collecting and Reusing Reclaimed Materials🌿

Central to our sustainability ethos is the concept of upcycling and repurposing materials. We actively collect scrap materials from other industries, giving them new life in our products. All of our wood products are sourced from reclaimed wood pieces: Coffee root, Laurelwood, Macawood, and Pine. Diego works tirelessly in his workshop carving each individual piece, while Raquel, Diego's wife, coats each piece in sustainable Tung Oil, to ensure each piece lives a long life. Upcycled Deadstock fabric scraps from a local clothing designer are transformed into our jumbo silk scrunchies. Upcycled Corte fabric, or traditional Mayan skirt fabric, are gathered at markets to be repurposed. We even partner with Coca-Cola, recycling old aluminum cans to make stunning and whimsical ornaments and tags.

Prioritizing Scrap Fabric Reuse🌿

In our endeavor to minimize waste, we save and reuse all scraps of fabric from our production process. These scraps are not discarded; instead, they are given priority in the creation of certain products. Our jewelry bags, animalitos, scrunchies, and cat products are all crafted using these fabric scraps, turning what might have been waste into something beautiful and functional.
