Green Your Mom: The Crafty Lady

Crafty woman Mother’s Day is Sunday (May 8), so this week’s tips suggest ways for you to help your mom be greener, no matter what type of lady she is. You might get a gift idea or two too.  

Tip #3: Green Her Crafts

If Mom's a DIY fiend who's always hunched over her next creative project, equip her with sustainable supplies, safe paints, a book or two about eco-crafts, a lesson (if she needs one) about how to use Craigslist and Freecycle, and maybe some Earth-friendly fibers. If she's more of a fix-it gal, consider getting her Energy Star-qualified power tools. Or just up her inspiration level by promising to take her to a green-minded festival like the delightful Renegade Craft Fair.

Tell us: What are the best green gifts for artists?
