Details of swap:
Swap for a "Going Green" Item. You have 1 weekend to craft and send. We want to prove to the world, how quick and easy it is to "go green", or just live how we should be.

This swap is for 1 medium item!

A change to your partner's lifestyle to help them go green.
Some ideas for it off the top of my head for crafts:
Reusable Shopping bag
Wool Dryer balls
Cloth napkins
Cloth "Paper" Towels
Reusable "lady" pads
handmade laundry soap
Reusable lunch bags


The things that are most important about this swap: Proving that it's not a huge lifestyle change to help out our plant just a little.
We can craft in a weekend!
We can help the planet with one item!
Reclaimed Craft Supplies Highly Welcomed!

will have to sign up this evening. I'm going to be a difficult participant, as I can only  make 2 things right now(wool dryer balls and mesh bags for produce at the grocery, instead of plastic ones)  because my sewing machine either hates me or is dying.....

Belladune, you're a easy match- lots of people want precisely the two things you can make! I still love the produce bag i got from you in the MAF. It's easy the most used item i have ever received in a swap.

I will do my best to have the partners done by noon tomorrow, so everyone has time to gather their supplies (hopefully from existing stash) and get going.
