Craftster is all about promoting environmentally friendly crafts. We Craftsters will take anything apart to reuse it. We save every little thing just waiting for that perfect craft opportunity. It’s a labor of love that we all appreciate. Every once in a while, though, it’s really nice to have some ready made craft supplies that are also environmentally friendly! Well, Coats and Clark has come out with some great new yarns that make being environmentally friendly a breeze!
They’re introducing two new Red Heart “eco-yarns” with a “Friendly to our Earth™” theme. Red Heart Eco-Cotton Blend is 75 percent recycled cotton from t-shirt manufacturing remnants and Red Heart Eco-Ways is made with 30% recycled polyester from plastic. These are both great ways to keep things out of the waste stream. While changing plastics into fiber is completely amazing, I’m particularly excited about the textile waste! It seems like such a no-brainer to take fibers that would otherwise get discarded and turn them into something fabulous!
There’s lots more info about these great yarns at the Coats and Clark website.
