My new Etsy experiment is going slowly, but I’m getting some positive feedback and I’ve made two sales! I’ve also joined an Etsy street team, EcoEtsy, comprised of “Etsyians dedicated to ‘Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle’ in their products and packaging.” This seemed like a perfect match with the idea behind my shop, and so far I’ve discovered some wonderful eco-friendly artists, gotten some great tips for packaging and for prepping for the holidays. You can learn more about the team by visiting the team homepage and blog.
I’ve also signed up for a team charity promotion called “Proceeds of Promise”. From December 7-14, participating shops will donate 10% of their sales to a charity called Heifer International, selected in a team vote. You can find out more about their work “Ending Hunger, Caring for the Earth” by visiting heifer.org.
