Below you can find charitable events, sales, specials and calls for new members from a handful of some active Etsy Teams. To join an Etsy Team, check out the Join page here!

Team Eco Etsy will be holding an eco-friendly basket auction from October 20th – October 30th, 2008, featuring eco-friendly handmade goods donated generously by Eco Etsy Team members. The contents of the basket are worth $300, and the Team is looking to raise money to donate to the Nature Conservancy by auctioning this basket off.

The brand new Queer Etsy Street Team is currently seeking new members. Each week the Queer Team hops into the Etsy forum with FRI-GAY! The FRI-GAY thread is dedicated to special promos from Team members and the deals are sweet, hot and only last for a week. If you miss them at least there’s always next FRI-GAY! The Queer Team welcomes all LGBTQIQ Etsians to join our frolicsome quest for world art domination through mutually supportive cross promotional efforts. If you want in on the action, visit the Team profile page or contact their fearless leader, queenofqueens.

    Great article..and I know just how much work the members of the Natural Kids Team does...I am always seeing some sort of communication and group promoting from them. Every member of that team is extremely talented, artistic and innovative and you can really tell just how much they each stand behind what they create! It is so refreshing to see women and mothers crafting imaginative items for children that spark creativity. Truly in the Waldorf fashion! Congrats to them all as they really deserve to be recognized!!!

    Teams have been a huge part of my time here on Etsy. I just want to say "Bravo!" to the Interior Design Team for launching their new website! Also want to say that the Gallery United Team of Fine Artists here in Etsy have launched their own Blog where we are posting Artist Interviews. Gallery United is dedicated to promoting fine 2D and 3D Art over $300 on Etsy. I hope everyone gets involved in a team...the Etsy community is so diverse, and supportive!
