Recycled Ideas!

As most of you probably know, April 22nd is Earth Day, and what better way to celebrate than changing some of our habits to be a little more earth-friendly? Recycling is available in most areas as a service of waste management, but what else can we do?

Many Etsy sellers incorporate recycling into their craft, and recycledideas is such a seller. Using junk mail and other scrap papers, she creates lovely papers, cards, and boxes in a rainbow of soft and vibrant colors.
What better way to store Etsy jewelry treasures than in this gorgeous and environmentally friendly little box?

Other items offered are monkeys! Monkey jewelry, cards, and stuffed animals! These cuties are all, of course, handmade and use the same recycling materials techniques employed in her paper goods.

Like most Etsy sellers, her price are very reasonable, with most items in the $6-12 range, so it's affordable as well as earth-friendly!
