Artisan Impact - up-cycled & handmade in the USA


artisan impact handmade in the usa for do good shop

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.
