Bellwethers Upcycled & Eco-Friendly Goods

Upcycled t-shirt scarf
T-shirts and ties are not objects I tend to find terribly exciting, but when they're fashioned into detailed accessories?! That's a different story, and that is part of what makes Bellwethers a business that gets the "Pretty" seal of approval. This Jefferson County-based business likes their goods green, and we're not talking color. Bellwethers specializes in upcycled and eco-friendly products that are a "must" in any household.  Bellwethers may be best known for their wool dryer balls, but trust me, there's more to this company than lamb's wool and laundry aids.
    
Before I discuss Bellwethers' extensive inventory, you may have some questions. For instance, what is upcycling? How is upcycling different from recycling? And what exactly is a dryer ball? Here's my Cliffs Notes version:

Upcycling
You know the phrase "one man's junk is another man's treasure"-- that's upcycling.

Upcycling vs. Recycling
When something is recycled, it is broken down to a base substance (paper, plastic, glass, etc.) and then created into something new. Upcycling is all about re-purposing without the pulverizing.

Dryer Balls
Dryer balls are felted wool balls that are used in place of dryer sheets or fabric softener when doing laundry. Dryer balls have many advantages over these products but the big bonuses are that they're both re-usable and chemical free! For more information on Dryer Balls check out the Bellwethers' FAQ page: http://www.bellwethersdryerballs.com/p/dryer-ball-faqs.html


Now that you know the lingo, let's talk shop[ing]. Bellwethers currently offers quite the range of products including felted pet balls, lavender eye pillows, herbal bath salts, rosette bracelets (made from old ties), scarves (made from t-shirts), and of course the dryer balls. They also make these A-mazing nautical knot headbands, that I absolutely adore!

Since I happen to think the nautical knot headband is the best thing since sliced bread (or a sliced t-shirt as the case may be), I believe that every girl needs at least one, if not one in every color. To help you get started with your collection, Pretty in the Panhandle will be partnering with Bellwethers for the next giveaway!!! Entry details will be posted next week, so keep your eyes peeled!

Bellwethers' products can be purchased online, but you can frequently find them set up at local farmer's markets and festivals should you want to do your perusing in person. I've listed all of the products they currently carry after the page break.
