Earth Day: Green Crafting Round-up

18 Apr

Earth Day Banner

I feel like we’ve been focusing a lot on being educational, which I’m totally into, but this is at least a part-time craft blog so there’s no way I could make it through April without an overview of eco-friendly crafting.

When Earth Day rolls around I get super excited because my favorite blogs, which are mostly on crafts and environmental issues, fall into perfect alignment.  Everyone is posting on green and upcycled crafts.  It’s basically heaven.  Every year I collect my favorites, but, being the procrastinator I am, I probably won’t get around to many of them.  I realize that this may not apply to you.  You, dear reader, may have that trait they call “organization.”  You may see a post on wonderful crafty ideas out there and actually act on them!  So, it is for those of you that are not INFPs that I present this list, in hopes of seeing the completed project on your Pinterest board (seriously, leave your link for your Pinterest board – I cannot follow enough people).

    […] During our 30 days of Earth Day celebration I started to feel a little bit guilty. It started when I used a water footprint calculator to figure out how much water my stuff uses. It grew when April wrote about being a conscience consumer. It escalated as I wrote about reducing how much we buy. It reached DEFCON 1 when April posted about green crafting projects. […]
