So I saw this mentioned in a board elsewhere and I thought "what in the world are we waiting for, lets get this started right now!"
I guess my idea is something like each month you kind of designate what eco-friendly craftrelated goal you would like to accomplish (ie. sew/ knit/ crochet grocery totes, plant your own veggies, make reusable swiffer covers, make a reusable lunch bag and pack eco-friendly lunches, ... the list could go on and on) and then post here about how it goes and we can all kind of cheer each other on and help each other out and gain new ideas from each other.
I have never even particpated in a craftalong and I know this is a rough draft of how it could work but what do you all think. I feel like this could help motivate me and hopefully others to take some risks and try new eco-friendly crafty things!
Okay so I pasted this up here so it was easy to find... I also didn't want to get rid of my original post... so here are the themes so far.... I am wide open to suggestions for the rest so feel free to PM me.
May: eco friendly cleaning?
(craft a eco-friendly cleaning kit, reusable swiffer covers, dusting?, craft a clothes drying rack, washcloths, shower scrubbies, etc.....)
June: reducing plastic waste?
(grocery bags, crafts using grocery bags, any other creative crafty ideas)
July: make your "garbage" into something reusable?
August: reducing paper waste?
(journals, make "new" paper, recycled into cards, etc....)[/b]
