Green Holiday Guide from Eco Etsy

Today is the start of the official holiday season.

While you check your gift list twice to see who’s been naughty and nice,
think about ways that you can green your holiday.

Better yet, since you are too busy with everything that’s happening this time of the year,
we have compiled a neat “Green Holiday Guide” for you.

And on the back of the guide, there is even a clickable green gift shopping guide with over 90 eco-friendly Team Eco Etsy shops to shop from.

Just to give you a peek inside the guide………here is the first page.

…and the first page of the gift guide…

Minna of Karuski, our dedicated team’s graphics designer, redesigned One Shade Greener’s original green holiday guide and added tips from members of the Eco Etsy team.

It is a comprehensive guide to help you celebrate the holiday without guilt while being gentler on the planet.

Check out her magnificent vintage inspired sweet things in her shop, Karuski. You’ll appreciate her design acuity even more.

Thank You Minna, for such a great work on our Green Holiday Guide!!

And thank you Lori and members for contributing to this awesome guide!


You can download the Green Holiday Guide badge from the sidebar to spread the green holiday message. Upload it to your blog. Share it on your facebook page. Tweet about it. Let’s share the green holiday cheer with everyone we know!

And remember, if you are shopping for gifts today, buy handmade and buy local.

It’s the best option, next to buying nothing.

  9. Great job! Thank you so much for doing this – it looks beautiful and will make my Christmas shopping so much easier. I have always saved every card I get – usually I make them into new cards or gift tags, but I’d like to try making boxes. Last week I made some gift bags out of magazine pages.
