Spotlight on Eco-Friendly Etsians!

As promised, here's the 1st in a series I'll be doing which will highlight the creative ways some of my NCTriangle and Etsymom Street Teams are making eco-friendly products by recycling, upcycling and using natural, biodegradable materials. Erin, of DinnerTimeChimes, always seems to keep her ideas fresh and innovative as shown here by her whimsical stationary set. She used envelopes from bills and creatively covered them with designs from magazines. The paper is made from recycled card stock. Aren't they fun? I can't wait to see what she comes up with next!

Speaking of fun, Mojo Trashion has designed this pocket-sized Mini Oreo Cardholder perfect for keeping important cards and a little cash on hand. Made from a recycled Mini Oreos package that's sandwiched between heavy duty vinyl and felt, it's super durable. It would also make a great gift!

And Donnapool makes us smile with these charming vintage multicultural button magnets. She used original images from a vintage magazine to create these one-of-a-kind magnets. They could be used as a cute way to show off your kids artwork, pin up important notes or a number of other possibilities!
