April 7, 2010—Northbrook, IL—Earth Day, celebrated on April 22, 2010, will mark the 40th anniversary of this green holiday. The popular crafting website, FaveCrafts.com offers people the opportunity to celebrate Earth Day with a green crafting eBook. The 42 Ways to Recycle eBook is free to download at FaveCrafts.com.
Non-profit consumer organization Green America recently called on Americans to take the “Green Economy Challenge” this Earth Day. Executive Director Alisa Gravitz said, “Going green saves money, creates jobs, and supports local communities. Green is the new red, white and blue.” They offer 10 tips for going green this Earth Day including their top tip, “The greenest thing consumers can do is to not buy new things at all.”
At FaveCrafts.com, we believe that crafting is a valuable skill to help you reuse and repurpose materials already in your home. For occasions such as birthdays or upcoming Mother’s Day, you can utilize materials like junk mail or tin cans to create beautiful homemade presents. Crafting is a fun and therapeutic activity that all ages can enjoy.
In the 42 Ways to Recycle eBook, 42 unique craft projects provide a multitude of green ideas for gift-giving, decorating, family activities and functional re-purposing. Seven sections include craft projects for Paper, Metal, Plastic, Glass, Clothing and more. Turn tin cans into Luminaries (pg. 32), toilet paper tubes into Napkin Rings (pg. 28) and plastic take-out containers into Jewelry (pg. 51).
