Top Eleven Ways to Go Green with Your Handmade Crafts

Some crafters enjoy up-cycling with their projects, which involves taking one item and turning into something of much greater value. This former Tonner Tyler doll has been completely redone to create this one-of-a-kind handmade creation. Click here to see the item for sale on ArtFire.com.

Crafts generally help the environment as they encourage artists to make their own handmade items instead of buying factory produced goods. Factory products are damaging to the earth in many ways, as the factories themselves often create massive quantities of pollution, and the products they generate are generally transported thousands of miles to buyers, which wastes precious energy. When crafters choose to create products and sell them locally, they give customers the opportunity to buy handmade goods instead of buying manufactured goods.

But sometimes artists want to do more with their hobby. They’re interested in making an eco-friendly impact with their craft goods.  Of course, not everyone is sure where to start taking steps to go green, but we can help.
