A few weeks ago I wrote a post highlighting all of the green events I'm participating in this month. One of the projects I talked about is the Eco Etsy Green Share project taking place all month in honor of Earth Day.
Quoting the Eco Etsy blog, here is the description of Green Share:
"The passing on and sharing of a gift of seeds and a starter planter that is given freely to classrooms, local businesses, neighbors, friends and family. The gift can be anonymous or can help show your business or organization’s commitment to Eco-Friendly living."
Below are photos of my materials and seed packets. I had my little girl help assemble. We used a big packet of seeds that I found at Target for $1...hopefully they will actually sprout! The plantable pots were about $2 for 12 pots and are made from 100% coconut fiber. The envelopes are misprints from one of my first wedding invitation jobs and the labels are leftovers from another project.
To put it all together, we used round labels to cover the misprinted addresses. I did some printing directly on the envelopes and also used a label on the back with planting instructions. A brass paperclip holds the starter pot to the envelope.
What are you doing to celebrate Earth Day this year?
