Earth Day is tomorrow! How are you celebrating? At Barn Light Electric, we love to recycle classic trends and give new life to abandoned materials through our upcycled products. We’re not the only people to embrace this lifestyle. So many independent crafters and brands have accepted the challenge of creating products out of recycled resources and we’re loving the result.
