Join me in the Etsy Virtual Labs as I talk about shopping green on Etsy – Today!

In conjunction with my Guest Curatorial post on the Storque, I will be sidling up to my computer to share some awesome Etsy finds that are both amazing and green to boot in a Shop Live.

If you’ve never participated in a virtual labs, this is a great way to get your feet wet and learn a bit more about the fabulous crafters that we highlight here on Crafting a Green World. I will be showcasing more of these eco-crafters and how their creative contributions are helping to lighten our environmental footstep.

  1. Kelly, we’re sad we missed it! On your hunt for the perfect finds, please tell us what search words you used. We currently tag our pieces with eco, reclaimed, recycled, but would love to learn from you on how you searched for your choices.

    Thanks so much for your eco-minded shopping on Etsy!

    (Our favorite place.)

    I also look for “upcycled” and “organic” where appropriate.
