The Hipcycle team offers its top picks for unique gifts and finds for spring 2012:  

“Our goal is to bring the marketplace for upcycled products closer to the mainstream consumer,” said Andrew Sell, Founder and Chief Hipcycler. “Rather than only targeting people who are highly environmentally conscious, we want to reach the broader population. Hipcycle features a curated variety of products that are stylish and functional, and that also happen to be environmentally friendly.”

Many of the 500+ products featured on are made in the U.S. while others are purchased through a commitment to fair-trade practices. Products can be searched for by purpose (i.e., home, garden, office) or by original material (i.e., wood, fabric, glass). Hipcycle also prides itself on telling the story behind the product, from its creator to its provenance.

As it expands into new categories, Hipcycle welcomes contact from potential designers and vendors. Learn more at
