EtsyVeg Earth Day Challenge - Day 1


EtsyVeg is counting down to Earth Day and our "EtsyVeg Earthly Riches Giveaway" by showcasing a few members every day who take steps to make their Etsy business more Earth-friendly. About a month ago we issued a challenge to members to make their products more environmentally friendly and tell us about it. The rules for participation were that products must somehow incorporate the 'theme' of Earth Day, and must somehow be 'earth friendly' in at least two ways: made with recycled materials, packaged conscientiously, made with sustainable materials, etc. Some members reflected on their methods and realized that they were already as eco-friendly as possible and passed along their secrets while others chose to create something completely new specifically for this challenge. Please check back daily for all the great tips and items!

Today's featured member is Heather (Aktie9) who created a grab bag of her photography specifically for this challenge!

Here is what she said about the item she created: This is a Grab bag of one 8x10 photo of my pink gerbera daisy, one 8x10 of my foxy loxy, and a assorted 4x6's of some of my digital art prints. All of these items come to you in recycled envelopes & cardboard. I am also going to walk to my mailbox and mail this package, instead of driving to the post office. I already have the stamps set aside to mail it to you.

Unfortunately this item already sold but you can still purchase the photos individually at Heather's Etsy shop.

Special Earth Day Challenge Deal!
Heather has generously offered the following deal for today ONLY! Put 'earthdaychallenge' into notes to seller & pay $10 for any 8x10 today.
