Our story began in 2016 when Links for Greener Learning, a nonprofit organization in Niagara, sought to create a space for newcomer women to connect with each other and the Niagara community while utilizing their skills to create beautiful and eco-friendly, one-of-a-kind bags and accessories. It was then that Eco-Chic 3R’s Boutique came to life.
Since our start a few years ago, our family of designers has grown and we now provide a platform for all artisans of the community to develop their skills, connect with each other and showcase their designs. When you buy a handcrafted product from us, you are getting much more than a bag or accessory. You are getting a story – the story of what it once was and the maker who reimaged it with their personal touch.
We are dedicated to raising awareness around sustainable fashion and reducing waste through recycling and upcycling pre-loved materials, reducing the amount of textile waste to the Niagara region while creating both a positive social and environmental impact to our community.
By purchasing an eco-chic product you are helping our planet while contributing towards creating empowering opportunities for local artisans.
