Eco Art Supplies Exist!

eco art suplliesI feel like I just found a unicorn! Trying to find a one stop shop for eco art supplies is like finding a needle in a hay stack. Even if you have some earth friendly crafting supplies here and there in big chain stores, what we all yearn for is that one store that has a delightful eco minded collection and nothing else toxic to dig through. It’s such a buzzkill to have one recycled paper pad in a store full of stuff so nasty and smelly and noxious that I am hurrying out of there for some fresh air.

Before I rant anymore about how silly we humans have gotten with our toxic craft inventions, I think I shall go ahead and share this mythical creature I found. Eco Art Works! (Oh my gawd, I hardly know where to begin because this online store has such a cool and interesting selection, every single item is a green crarfters treat.) Eco Art Works crosses barriers between the artist, the crafter, and children to bring a full range of eco art supplies from non toxic professional watercolors, pastels, and paints to organic yarns, beeswax modeling clay, soy crayons and paper making kits. If you aren’t dizzy yet from this Bigfoot-like paper making kitsighting there’s even more, so hold on to your chair… They have basket weaving kits, recycled journals, hemp paper products, non toxic colored pencils and a flower press… yippee! At this point if this store was not just in virtual space I would be skipping down the aisles in amazement and completely giddy like we all won the non toxic art supply lotto. ‘Cause virtually, we did.

I think this store is a great example of what we are all working towards here at Crafting A Green World, this is where our dream store would begin.

  22. Tape is so not eco, i wonder how they could make it eco – i have heard of special non toxic floor glue for installing cork floors- maybe this can be made into tape too? FYI – tape isn’t gluten free either and for those with wheat issue it would be cool if an eco tape that was also gluten free was invented!

    Thank you for this post! I have been looking all over for eco-friendly art supplies. However, I’m still on the hunt for zero VOC acrylic paints. I found some through Green Art products, but they only sell small tubes. Does anyone know where I can purchase acrylic in larger quantities?

    WOW!!! I didn’t realize there was such a push in the eco-lovin community for “green” art supplies. I have been making artist canvas for years and have always adhered to eco-friendly standards….. I only use FSC certified wood in frame building and the canvas is a natural cotton with nontoxic gesso. Its so nice to see people are finally coming around.
