Here are 3 easy ways you can help the planet as a crafter! These are just tips and tricks I use, let me know what your favorites are. Start small and simple, that's the easiest way to make change.
1: DO NOTHING, that's the best isn't it? Buy nothing new and treat your stash like the store. It's even better than the store because you don't have to pay for anything.
2: Borrow or trade with friends- If you are new to a craft borrow the tools first, or take a little from their stash in exchange. When a friend of mine started to collage, I gave her a small container of PVA so she could see how she liked it.
Or take all your supples that you know you're not going to use any longer, tell your friends to do the same and do a craft swap! It works just like a clothing swap, bring all your stuff and put it in a pile. Your friends will do the same. Then go "shopping" in the piles.
3: Just like the things you put in your body, read the back of your craft supplies. I aim to purchase all my supplies from countries that have strict environmental laws. This includes Canada, the EU, USA and Japan
What are your favorite tips? Let me know, I'm always looking for more ways to help the earth.
