Lou's Upcycles Logo

Thank you for all your support over the years! Lou has retired the production/studio portion of the business and will not be making any new pieces. The only handmade items remaining are in her Etsy shop. Don’t fret because Lou is still teaching upcycling workshops to inspire and teach YOU the process of fused plastic upcycling. Check here for workshops in your area and come learn how to turn trash into treasure!

What else can I do to keep the mission alive?

1.  no-plastic-bagsREFUSE AND REDUCE:  Head here for tips on how to reduce your plastic bag waste.

2. RECYCLE: Print a plastic bag recycling guide.  Remember, you can’t recycle bags with your other recyclables! Pellet fuel bag recycling guide can be found here.

4. TAKE A WORKSHOP: Join an upcycling workshop with Lou and learn how to create with your own household’s waste.

5.  EDUCATE YOURSELF AND YOUR NEIGHBORS about our plastic pandemic. There are many other resources on this site including videosbooks, and other info.
