I am super passionate about reusing because I love taking one person's "trash" and turning it into treasure! So many people take the easy way out and go to big box stores on items they could easily find at garage sales and thrift stores. Buying second hand reduces landfill waste and helps you skip the impact of buying new! To help inform and inspire you, I put together the top 5 items that I look for when I go to garage sales and thrift stores

When you're shopping for craft supplies, one of the easiest ways to keep it eco-friendly is to buy used rather than new. When you pick up second-hand supplies, you're doing environmental double duty: keeping those materials out of the landfill and avoiding the impacts that come with creating new tools and supplies. Hurrah!

On Wednesday, we shared a video tutorial on how to make your own fingerpaint, but let's be honest here: you are busy.

I did a little digging and found a few companies that make fingerpaints that are much healthier and more eco-friendly than the conventional ones you'd find on store shelves.
