{Eco Inspirations} Community Soup Swap

Tis the time of year for living like a hermit. And even if you’re making a concerted effort to get out despite your post-holiday malaise, chances are, you’re hunkering down at your favorite hole-in-the-wall and not making too many friends. The solution? Hosting a community soup swap! That’s exactly what Amy Thompson of the blog Progressive Pioneer did! It’s the perfect way to connect with other people in your neighborhood while sharing some homemade goodness. To see how Amy lured her neighbors into cooking, canning and sharing, read her inspiring article here.

Lydia Krupinski is the avid upcycling mad-woman behind popular Etsy shop Pierogi Picnic. When she's not busy fantasizing new ways of using old threads, Lydia can be found wrangling volunteers and fosters for Chicago’s oldest and most respected animal welfare organization – The Anti-Cruelty Society. And should you be lucky to catch her on a day off, you'll probably find her canoodling with one of her four rescue pets, crafting up new eco-tutorials, exploring the city by bike, reading along the lakefront or resting in her urban homestead.
