Vote In Etsy’s Handmade Kids Challenge, Win Etsy Cash

Etsy, the crafting gal (and guy’s) favorite marketplace is holding a Handmade Kids Challenge, which showcases all the crafts made for kids on Etsy.

Expert judging has started in seven categories, one of which is “eco-friendly”, and winners in each category will get a $200 Etsy shopping spree. Check out the eco-friendly entries!

More info, including a chance for you to win an Etsy shopping spree, after the jump…

Among my favorites are Plum Creek Mercantile’s reusable sandwich bags, which Eat Drink Better‘s Green Diva, Megan McWilliams, highlighted last week.

I’m also loving this adorable organic cotton dress knit dress from Grey Skies.

And Sophia Carolina’s diaper bag made of upcycled Starbucks coffee bags could be used for more than just diapers.

The best part?  Etsy wants its users to have a say in their favorite kids’ crafts, so they’re letting readers vote on three winners from each category to win between $50-$200 to spend at Etsy.  And if you vote, you could win one of fourteen $350 Etsy shopping sprees.  If you’re like me, you’re on Etsy a couple of times a week, so you might as well vote while you’re there… then all that online window shopping could become a reality!  Vote here now!

About the Author

A former high school teacher, I'm currently a part-time writer/full-time doctoral student at the University of St. Thomas in the Twin Cities, studying leadership in education from a critical pedagogy perspective along with public policy. On the green side, I'm interested in local food and agriculture (Iowa girl, born and raised), sustainability education, DIY projects, and grassroots activism. I'm slowly turning my South City, St Louis home into an urban farmstead. On the hoping-to-be-greener side, I love reading, yoga, soccer, music, backpacking, knitting, pop culture and trivia, my Tuesday Night Dinner Club, traveling, Guitar Hero, dive bars, and sitting on front porches with my husband and a cold beer. I came to Green Options via a post on Sustainablog,working the St Louis angle to get Jeff to let me in. I have a personal blog chronicling (what else?) life in South St. Louis.
