Giveaway | Teresa Collins Signature Series Idea Book

Eco Green Crafts Lives Earth Day Everyday (Giveaway)

Today is Earth Day, so everyone is talking and thinking “green”. What can we do to save the planet? But one crafts company lives and works by the principles of Earth Day everyday.

Eco Green Crafts debuted to heavy buzz (heavy enough to be a Scrapbook Update hot pick) at CHA Winter 2010. The company was co-founded by Julia Andrus and Susan Sepaniak. Andrus’s “green” motivation comes from being a survivor of a rare form of cancer, which lead her to believe we need to get rid of the toxins in our environment. As a dedicated crafter, she wanted chemically safe crafting supplies to use. Sepaniak brings to Eco Green a wealth of expertise about craft mediums, having formerly been Director of Product Development at Plaid.

The color palette introduced by Eco Green at CHA Winter 2010 was described to me as based on several influences: 1963 fashion colors, Royal French, Biblioteque, and Country French. Basic metals were also included.

Eco Green’s ink pads are an excellent example of the company’s commitment and attention to detail in their “green” mission. During my visit to their booth, I was told the inks are vegetable-based, the bottom of the case is made of recycled plastic, and that the rounded shape of the pads is designed to be ergonomically correct. Eco Green Crafts offers both dye and pigment ink pads.

The company’s stamps are cling-mounted rubber. Their “green” feature is that since they are unmounted, they save wood. The stamps’ designs are steam punk and vintage styled. Eco Green also offers beads that are made of recycled glass, a very intriguing concept.

In keeping with the natural theme of the company, their color names are almost all drawn from nature: mushroom, sky, butternut, coral, etc.

Noell Hyman of (my co-host on Paperclipping Roundtable) taped a really inspiring demonstration in the Eco Green Crafts booth in Anaheim with Julia Andrus:
