Mary Ann works with reclaimed and recycled items. Almost all items that she sells are made with reclaimed materials to be a green as possible. Reuse, Recycle, Renew is her motto.Mary Ann finds other items during her walks and in second hand stores (a favourite place of mine.)
Mary Ann is also a painter of wildlife. You can find out more about Mary Ann and the Backyard Bear at thebackyardbear.com

A couple of other shops from etsy and team mates (Team Muskoka) to visit who love to recycle -
Alissa’s wool diaper doublers check out her etsy listing.
She calls herself the Queen of Recycling and her designs are just amazing. She says ” I am one Crazy little Clothing Designer.. with a very Bohemian Flare.” and her designs for kids and adults are definitely worth a look.
