"One person’s trash is another person’s treasure, but that treasure should’ve never been trash." Along with community and design, sustainability is one of Artifact’s three main pillars. We wanted to share with our community all of the many ways we strive to be as eco-friendly as possible. Using green cleaning products and LED lightbulbs are just a few examples. Our front window is a visual journey from trash to treasure, showing a boring pile of trash transforming into a colorful and well designed treasure extravaganza. Our showcase room takes this one step further in sharing with you our community of upcyclers and local makers. Come on in and check out all the ways Artifact aims to be as sustainable as possible in all our daily practices.
Why buy 2nd hand? Here at Artifact we love to see clothing and furniture given new life and kept out of the landfill. When you shop pre-loved items, you are part of the cycle of sustainability.
To us, sustainability is a lifestyle. So while style and design makes Artifact go round, our intention is to double as an educational resource on sustainability. Of course, you can be part of the sustainable fashion loop through our Buy/Sell/Trade family. But that’s just the beginning: Artifact offers information on recycling and reusing in our town — including info on other resale shops, because guess what? We’re about community and camaraderie over competition.
Come celebrate Earth Day at Artifact! Shop incredible one-of-a-kind upcycled creations by local makers + enjoy 10% off all clothing and accessories at Artifact, Sunday from 12pm-5pm!
Plus, don't forget to drop off clean and dry, screw on bottle caps, as well as cosmetic and toiletry containers. Artifact pays to ship these recyclables to Terracycle where they are turned into new products. Visit Terracycle.com to learn more how you can recycle further at home and in your neighborhood.
