Upcycle Bazaar

King County Makers

The future of our product-driven world is to make new things from the old. The Upcycle Bazaar features the work of our local makers who upcycle materials to keep them in use as long as possible! You’ll also be able to browse upcycled products, make sock puppets with repurposed materials, and learn how small changes can make a huge difference. 


Upcycling makers & Activities featured at CHOMP!

CHOMP’S Upcycle Bazaar is about helping network King County Upcyclers to each other to create a larger, more organized, zero waste circular economy in King County. Find these featured makers below, as well as some fun activities to show off your upcycling skills!

Get the Scoop

Scoop Marketplace will be offering low waste lifestyle products such as personal care, cleaning, on the go, everyday essentials. Scoop Marketplace has a mission to normalize zero waste grocery shopping and is passionate about teaching people how to improve the quality of their lives while learning to walk more gently on the planet. By reviving the shopping methods of generations past, we are giving ourselves a healthier hereafter.

Earth-Friendly Children's Goods

Sunny Littles offers earth friendly goods for kids and families. Explore their apparel, toys, baby gear, crafting supplies, gifts and more!

Food Sticker Art

Zero Waste WA uses data to develop paintings that are made to be covered with fruit stickers. This art is beautiful before – midway – and after it’s covered by endless layers of labels. Color pallets and level of details are designed to work perfectly with what an average consumer will get resulting in an artwork made of recycled materials that everyone can be proud of! This is also a great engaging tool to educate kids about compost contamination.

Upcycling is part of a larger system called the Circular Economy
