Save a tree, buy recycled frames.

The other day I was telling a costumer that the frame sample she just looked at was created from recycled water bottles. It didn’t matter that the frame wasn’t the perfect color, what mattered to the costumer was the story behind the frame.

Picture framing is the latest trend into the Go-Green concept of today’s environmentally conscious world. Companies such as Framerica out of New York are rushing to get EPP licensed to consumers purchasing recycled materials. Frames shops such as Frames USA and Art Gallery have a nice selection of these Go-Green framing products.

“It feels good to sell a frame to a costumer that I know was made out of melted down water bottles”, Adam Brand, owner of Frames USA says. “It feels really good to know that our manufacturers are looking for new ways of framing other than chopping down trees in the rain forest”, Brand says.
