Welcome to the Home of Sustainable Crafts

Knitting LoveGreen is the new black, as they say, but what in the world does that mean? It means living sustainably is the “cool” thing to do, but some of us have been doing these things for years. Take crafters for example – many of us keep scraps of fabrics from other projects for future use, “frog” old sweaters and scarves to have fresh yarn to work with, and tweak items and patterns we find to make them just right for our tastes. The renewed popularity of green living has benefits for creative folks as well, including new sustainable fabrics and innovate ideas for reusing a plethora of resources.

For those of us who enjoy being a part of the creative process or are beginning to experiment with do-it-yourself projects, then Crafting a Green World is for you! We’ll be featuring everything from eco-patterns, supplies, and creators to book reviews and event/sale notices. Crafting a Green World (CAGW) is working to be your #1 resource for organic, natural, and recycled crafty projects, products, media, and businesses. Whether you are a novice, a pro, or somewhere in between, Crafting a Green World will have the sustainable crafty content you are looking for.

Got a suggestion for something to cover? Leave a comment or send us an email directly via our Contact page.

Enamored with eco-crafting and want to share your discoveries? CAGW is currently looking for writers (yes, we do pay for posts)! Send us an email with a bit of your background info, writing experience and availability.

This is the beginning of a crafty revolution and Crafting a Green World is your home for all the juicy details!

I think of myself as a creatively versatile eco-powerhouse. Freelance writer, life-long model, on-camera personality, public speaker, official U.S. spokesperson for Twice Shy Clothing - I'm a classic Renaissance woman and mistress-of-all-trades.

Though my days of growing up in the corn fields of central Indiana are behind me, forgetting where I came from is not an option. I lost my father unexpectedly in March of 2006, months before moving from NYC to San Francisco, which helped to amplify my zest for life and thirst to help change the world.

Perpetually looking for fresh ways to share my unquenchable green knowledge, I blog about everything eco on my own website, as well as for All Green Magazine and select others. Additionally, I am the editor/head writer of Crafting a Green World (part of the Green Options blog network) and a writer/web editor for Building Green TV. My diverse articles have been published in variety of reputable magazines, such as: Yoga Journal, Venus, CRAFT, Yogi Times, Recovery Solutions, M+F, and Office Solutions.

In my spare time, you can find me knitting, reading, singing, taking pictures, practicing yoga, taking long walks, and working on my first non-fiction book. Other random facts about me: I'm a Buddhist, latex fan, have four tattoos, and an attempting locavore.

  1. Please count me in. I’d love to be a part of this site. I will definitely be back to visit and provide ideas about green crafting. I have many free patterns at my site that I’d love to share too. Best wishes on your new venture here.

  2. Hi!

    I work for a big industry that receives mail by the thousands. I started noticing the stamps on the envelopes and cut them out. I began turning them into craft projects by decoupaging them onto ornaments and little paper mache boxes. I sold some and entered some in a juried art show.
    Since then I have been researching stamps and have found that even cancelled stamps are worth money.

  3. Well, nice idea, but your first post is about BUYING a kit to make beauty products!
    Just another con.

    • If you’re referring to the kits from Herban Crafts, I have to disagree with you there. Each kit is hand assembled with all of the materials and supplies you need. I don’t think making crafting easy negates the act of crafting, and I’m sorry to hear that you feel that way. I also really appreciate that you went straight to name calling.
