EcoEtsy Team Member Little Rocks, makers of furniture and funwear in Athens Greece, is the home of visual artist Petroula Krigkou. Most of Little Rocks’ products are fabricated from recycled or upcycled materials.

Petroula’s aim is to shrink our landfills one crate, pallet and bottle at a time and turn those discarded items into something beautiful and sustainable.

Their shop includes furniture, t-shirts, jewelry, cards and more – all with their adorable and whimsical designs!

The paper for their notecards is made with post-consumer waste like orange peels and walnut or almond shells. They are 100% TREE FREE and 100% post consumer recycled waste.

The papers are manufactured using Energia Pura – electrical energy covered by RECS (Renewable Energy Certificate System) Certificates. These directly support the development of electrical energy production coming from renewable sources such as solar, wind power, hydro-electric and geothermic.

How cool is that – check out their amazing website Little Rocks Designs and their fun production video below!
