Eco-Fabulous Handmade!

Happy Earth Day! Reducing, reusing, and recycling is a great way to help preserve our Mother Earth. These can even be implemented in crafting, and some of EtsyVeg's members do just that in unique, inspired ways. Check out some fabulous examples of handmade goods created using vintage, upcycled, reclaimed, repurposed and recycled materials. Eco-friendly and veg artisans at their best!
