This morning I went on a search for eco friendly and there are definitely a humangous amount of links that come up. I ran across a website in the process called "Happy Hippie" which is retail directory to shop eco-friendly. I didn't take the time to investigate how much of it is homemade or handmade but when we try to be environmentally conscientious, this part doesn't really matter. Though personally I advocate and support the handmade movement and to the best of my ability I will purchase handmade too!!! Back to the site, what I really liked about it is that they have an educational page in which you can learn different things. They call it Hippie 101 ~ Tips on Going Green and Other Sustainable Earth Articles.
This includes hempucation, sustainability, simple living, healthy living, animal kingdom and more. I think it is time (now more than ever perhaps IMO) that we pay attention and be conscientious about our purchasing actions, waste management and more.
