Green Your Crafting: Art Materials

Pencils Crafting is a great way to build community, revitalize seemingly useless items, and encourage creativity. This week’s tips will help you keep your crafting from harming our environment.

Tip #1: Sustainable Supplies

Invest in eco-friendly crafting materials, such as watercolor pencils made from reforested wood, plant-based glue that's VOC-free, or felt made of recycled soda bottles. Having these types of items on hand helps protect forests and keeps landfills emptier.
