Team Eco Etsy News for June

This is a quick post to give you a recap on how much our team is loved!

Green Child Magazine

We were featured in a great magazine called Green Child Magazine with some beautiful items from selected members.

The beautiful magazine is chock full of summer tips for traveling, safe sunscreens, natural first aid, summer parties, a great interview with gorgeous green mama Sara Snow, and more. Check it out if you haven’t yet. Also, they are generously offering discounted rates for advertising – kinda like the spread about our team on page 34 – to our members. So if you haven’t e-mailed them yet, let me know and I’ll tell  you the deets. It’s a great chance to be promoted as a team!


Momtastic featured a few of our members’ green goodies in their “How to Make the Switch to Reusable Napkins” article by a green advocate and consultant Lori Popkewitz Alper. Reusable napkins save you money and trees and it’s a concept worth repeating. And the article provides some great napkin ideas from our team members! Thank you Momtastic! Don’t you just LOVE that word??

I’ve been using my Citrus Enzyme Cleaner for over a month now and I absolutely LOVE it for all types of cleaning. I use it in my dishwasher and in the laundry too. It’s a great way to use up citrus scraps and guess what? Earth911 had a similar idea about using up citrus scraps too. Some of their ideas for using up citrus scraps include, polish your cookware, wash fruits and vegetables, fight allergies, and make citrus enzyme cleaner. Read the rest of the tips on Earth911 here.

Practically Green

Did you hear? Practically Green and Green Is Universal released their smartphone app! Woo hoot! You can download the app on your phone and click your actions and goals right from your phone now! It’s totally addicting and you get to see which celebrity – like Matt Lauer, Jessica Alba, Alec Baldwin, Ann Curry, etc. – suggested which actions. If you haven’t downloaded it yet, you can download it here for FREE. And oh, they are having another Twitter party on Jun 6th at 9PM EST to celebrate their new app release. So join the party and let’s continue to do #OneSmallAct daily to make a difference in our mission to live greener!

Hope you are having a great weekend!

  1. I loved that Momtastic article. We have started using cloth napkins and they are pretty cool and festive. Yard sales and junk stores always have lots of them available and my drawer is bursting with colors!
