1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / eco-craftalong on: May 14, 2007 06:42:44 PM
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! Smiley


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. Wink

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....)
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / fabric's that are safe for food??? on: March 27, 2007 06:47:31 PM
errr... I wasn't sure where to put this so here goes nothing.

I was wondering if anyone had reccomendations for a fabric that is good for making something that has direct contact with food. (room temp or refridgerated)
Maybe it is something so simple I am not thinking of it but I just want to be double sure about food safety before I create this item and give it to someone.

Thanks for looking and any help would be much appreciated.
