Thanks for your awesome comments and great ideas! I've started a flickr group as well where you can add photos.


I love that so many artists and designers are taking a green approach to how they create and what they create. I'm going to post your pieces in March as well but I would really, really love it if everyone thought of this project as a starting point for making something new. You don't have to be an artist, you don't have to have a shop or sell your products. I would love for everyone, artists and non-artists, to take this opportunity to explore the possibilities of creating in a eco-friendly way. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

To participate please go to the first post and comment with links to your creation or send me a pic and description to

The Greenies 2008

In honor of March being Green month (according to every magazine publication!) I want to make a collection of your green and eco-friendly crafts, art, and whatnots. It can be anything as long as it is green somehow - recycled, reused, ecosavvy techniques, etc., etc. Just post a comment here with a link to your green creation or email me a pick and description. I will post EVERY SINGLE PIECE every week of March here and on

Here is some green stuff I like a lot!

1. Recycled bowls and trays from Bitters Co. - a really great green shopping resource. 2. I know everyone has been blogging about these textiles from Plover Organic but they are fantastic 3. The life and work of everyone at R. Wood Studio is inspirational. These bowls are made by hand from red clay from Georgia. 4. I want this fancy schmancy no electricity required coffee maker from Toddy Cafe. 5. This favor box is part of the Paper-Source environmentally friendly line of stationery and paper. 6. greenKarat's goal is to end destructive gold and diamond mining by creating ecologically and socially responsible jewelry. 7. My baggu is one of my favorite accessories. I use it for groceries, a lunch bag, library books, everything. 8. Cute felt birdies from the sustainable living experts at Branch Home.
