Get to Know You!


Hey there Green Crafters! The folks here at Crafting a Green World want to hear a bit about you.

We’re wondering what you’re into. What draws you to crafting and to green crafting? Do you make things as a hobby, or do you have a crafty business? Or maybe both! We’re curious, so we wanted to use the comments on this post as sort of an informal poll to learn about you guys! I’ll get the ball rolling with a little bit about myself…

My name is Becky Striepe, and along with writing for Crafting a Green World, Ecolocalizer, and Feelgood Style, I run a crafty business: Glue and Glitter. Crafting with ecofriendly materials just felt right to me. I try to reduce, reuse, and recycle in all the other parts of my life, so why not my crafty life too? I love the challenge of taking vintage and thrifted materials and turning them into something cute and new.

So jump right in and tell us about yourselves! Don’t be shy.

    Hello world! I’m Mo – a teenage crafter from New Zealand. I don’t really specialize in any distinctive type of craft, prefering to just go where the inspiration takes me! I believe that we only have the one planet, and that us humans have been thoughtlessly stripping it for too long. So when creativity and care merge, you’re gonna get something beautiful.

    Wanting to find eco-friendly organic ‘elastic’ and rubber for designing completely ‘green’ jackets for my family. Please help me, I live in New York city, midtown Manhattan and online searches have taken me nowhere. Hoping you can help me : -)
