April Monthly Challenge- 'It's Easy Being Green"

You are cordially invited to play, get more involved with the team, get inspired, share your talent, take advantage of some free promotion... get ready for March's team creative challenge!

April is Earth Month, and in honor of earth-loving events such as Earth Day on April 22nd, Arbor Day on the 24th, and overall Earth awareness, April's challenge theme is "Going Green!" Enter any items that meet your interpretation of what "green" represents, i.e., the color green, using planet-friendly materials, upcycled and recycled creations, messages that support eco-friendly practices, or even images of Earth and nature. The challenge theme is very subjective, so enter whatever handmade creations, vintage goods, or supplies, new or already listed in your shop, that fit the theme for you! ;)

This month's EtsyVeg challenge is meant to inspire, recognize, and promote team members and our shops; to spread the word about vegan/vegetarian lifestyles and living consciously; and to raise awareness about the ease of eco-friendly living. Here's how to enter...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

*Challenge Guidelines*

~Participation is open to any EtsyVeg team member. Members of Cruelty Free Etsy and VeganEtsy are also invited to join (spread the word)!

~Entry involves simply posting applicable items in your shop with the tag "easybeinggreen" (one word, without the quotations). You must also have your entry tagged with the official team tag, "etsyveg team."

~Deadline for entry is April 30th.

~At least one entry per participant will be featured in the EtsyVeg blog at the very beginning of May.

~All team members (not just participants) are invited throughout the month to initiate forum threads about the challenge, make treasuries by doing a tag search for "etsyveg team" with "easybeinggreen" and putting only those items in the treasury, or to generate other types of promotion. (If you do any of these, please let everyone know so that we can all post or click to keep it going!)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Members, we are now discussing team-challenge themes for May and June. Chime in with any ideas you have in our Google Group forum thread for this month.

~*Happy creating!*~
