One way our partner artisan Mellisa makes a living after a life of struggle, living on and off the streets, is through her love of art and creativity. After a longtime friendship with Mellisa and a front row seat to her and many of her friends struggles, marginalization and pain, we came to find out that she had a hidden talent for creativity and art. Through the generosity of local Davis bike shops like Ken's Bike and Ski and B & L Bikes, Mellisa receives donated leftover bicycle parts, add her own flair and creativity, and the result is the trendy and eco-friendly up-cycled art you see here at Do Good Shop.
With each purchase, you are empowering a talented artist in need of a hand up. Additionally, you give a happy home to up-cycled bicycle parts that were destined for the landfill. Your purchase saves the planet AND saves lives. Thank you.
