Take A Family Challenge To Help The Environment

Crafting is one of my passions.  I love making new things and being creative.  I know that there are a lot of ways that I can upcycle things around the house to be creative.

Help the environment - Mother's Day Card

Take A Family Challenge To Help The Environment

However, I find myself running to the craft store to buy new craft supplies more and more often lately.  I know that it would be better for the environment if I cut down on my new purchases and learned to be a bit more creative with my craft projects. Since Mother’s Day is only a few days away, I really needed a card.  I could either purchase a new card or make one myself.

Since my goal is to reduce the amount I’m purchasing, I decided making a card was the way to go.  Of course, that meant I would need to find some craft supplies that would work to make a Mother’s Day card. While I have a huge tub of rubber stamps, nothing really screamed Mother and inspired my creativity.  I really wanted to do some bright, spring flowers on the card since spring has finally arrived here in Vermont. I decided to get creative and make a Mother’s Day card using what I had in my craft closet already.

You can watch the video and see what I did to create my Mother’s Day card.

Are there things that you can do to reduce, re-use and recycle around the home?  Is everyone in the family on board with recycling?  Could you get the children more involved in the challenge to help the environment? We try really hard to remember to recycle everything that we can.  When possible, we shop second hand to help control the manufacture of new items. Now my new goal is to buy less and use what I have on hand.  What’s your goal?
