Apr 9, 2019

by Katie Hawley handmade and vintage goods

This Earth Month, we’re debunking the myth that going green means giving up or going without (or worse yet, settling for uninspired alternatives in the name of saving the planet). To help make our case, we’re shining a light on some of the eco-friendly Etsy items making it easy to incorporate sustainability into your everyday life, without sacrificing style. “Moving toward a more environmentally conscious way of life starts with becoming more aware of the items you purchase,” says Etsy Trend Expert Dayna Isom Johnson. “The good news? Many of today’s designers are prioritizing Earth-friendly materials and putting fresh, creative spins on sustainable pieces, and there’s truly something for everyone.” From reusable essentials like eco-chic biodegradable sponges and colorful glass straws to an effortlessly wearable jumpsuit made from all-natural fibers, here are Dayna’s favorite sustainable Etsy items of the moment.

    So cool products! Love the glass straw and sponges, Going to purchase those for me! I don't have sustainable products In my shop but I'm trying to be consciousness about environment. So, I switched paper envelopes to plastic because, according to PAC, there are recyclable and you can through them away with plastic bags in supermarkets).

    I knew that washable bags will win the game at some point of time! I love the idea of washable baggies, especially for weddings! I do wash ziplock bags at home and my family still takes it as a useless action. But I totally believe it saves the world.

    Reuse and Recycle! Plastic Straws and plastic bags are so harmful to sea creatures - its easy to find market bags with personality on Etsy. New York State will be banning plastic bags in supermarkets, so hop on it a get yourself an armful of unique carryalls here.

    Thank you for bringing up such an imporatant theme! Eco-bags, eco-mugs, eco-clothers, eco-carpets, -blankets and even - bedclothers... Hope everybody will use more such kind of products. I have another eco-problem in my city. We have snowy winters with slippery roads. Some chemicals placed on roads to keep the ice melting. So we have spoiled shoes, dogs have sick paws, skin diseases and lung deseases,... Hope, this problem will be solved soon. We must be eco-friendly! What remains after us ??!!

    I've been always fond of natural materials, i.e. cotton, clay, wood... My husband makes different things in natural wood and I'm really proud of his craftsmanship. It's a great idea to celebrate earth month together throughout the world.

    Slava K. from HappyWoodenGifts said 1 year ago

    Recently, I started thinking about how much plastic we use every day and how much it pollutes our planet. it hurts me to see people mindlessly buy at least packages to throw them away in 5 minutes! and most of them aren't even in the trash, they're right under your feet. I am glad to see how the masters create cool and beautiful things that do not harm our planet and at the same time emphasize the style.
