Innovative eco friendly packaging | Upcycled corrugated bubble pack, biodegradable mailers & tape and more.

Sometimes I see something and think,

Why haven’t I been doing this all along?

Check out the big brain on Brad.

Upcycled cardboard bubble pack? Yes!

What started as a search for some heavy-weight recycled kraft paper turned into my eco-packaging discovery. While the cardboard bubble pack really knocked my little green socks off, my interest was also piqued with some of Eco Enclose’s biodegradable products, natural rubber-backed kraft tape and poly mailers. I just got my order in last night and I’m pumped to pack up today’s worthygoods textile orders with my new eco friendly packing.

Packaging that’s as responsible as the contents?

Check it out.

Course, I’d love to have an in-studio hand-crank version of the magic machine that turns out this cardboard bubble pack, I’m so glad to know where to find it. Despite my every attempt to re-use cardboard  in shipping worthygoods textile parcels out, my dear husband still ends up breaking down a bizarre amount that heads to the transfer station. {Thank you, dear.} So if you spot one of these miracle-cardboard-bubble-pack-upcycling machines, let me know! Interested in all these biodegradable goodies? You’ll have to stop by Erin’s smart shop, EcoEnclose.Etsy.com to check out all she has to offer.

Washi Tape Organizing with Vintage Wooden Spools | Clevah, deah.

Washi tape + vintage spools

Smart.

organizing spools of washi tape with vintage wooden spools

I spotted this fantastic idea using vintage wooden spools to organize washi tape while scrolling through my Pinterest feed. Patter Cross whipped this up with vintage wooden spools, cork and ring tags. An idea that would translate to ribbons and lace as well, don’t you think? Read more about it and drool over her rainbow washi collection here.

Like to try it for yourself? Snap up some spools at the shop

Featuring: Miss Ladyfingers & her organic cotton bandana bib

Let me introduce you to Miss Ladyfingers.

She’s one of those crafty ladies that works all kinds of magic. And if you visit her blog, you’ll see what I mean.

But what I’m loving is this drooly bib-bandanna creation. Been around a tooth/teeth-coming-in-toddler? You know- so smart.

Sewn from organic cotton terry and organic Monsterz Spotlight in orange by Cloud9 Fabrics. I’m pretty sure it would be muuch easier to talk a toddler into sporting one of these than a ‘baby’ bib, no?

Great idea, Amanthus!

Be sure to stop by her shop and check out her snap cowls for toddlers and grown-ups alike.
