Earth Day is coming up… Think about crafting GREEN!

[16 Apr 2009 | By | 3 Comment(s) | 6,894 views ]

Earth Day is April 20, and besides celebrating by going to the Sweetwater 420 Festival which I’ll be doing this weekend in Atlanta, I figured we should also get some green crafting in. So here’s a few links for you to get you started…

And finally, a flickr roundup to give you some inspiration for your green crafting… Think Green – Recycled Fashion from around Flickr. Click through the links below the picture for more information on each, and to see the other cool stuff these artists & crafters do with recycled materials!

Not directly related, but I’ve been meaning to post this:
Blog friend and artist Diana Evans has a new website, Bees For A Cause, where 50% of proceeds of the sale of her cute “Bee” print go to Heifer International to help struggling families earn income through the sale of honey, beeswax and pollen. Every $30 Raised purchases a package of bees, the box and hive, plus training in beekeeping. It’s a little thing, but it shows the direct impact that people can have on others.
