I’ve mentioned Etsy on this blog a few times now. It’s the best place to find a hand made items by talented individuals. There’s clothing, jewelry, household items, knitted and crocheted items – the list goes on and on. Eco-Etsy is where sellers use recycled materials for their craft. It’s amazing what they come up with. You really need to check them both out if you haven’t already.

One of my “Trying To Be Greener” reader’s is a “green” Etsy crafter there. She and her husband, Zach, created Hobocamp Handmade in 2004. Melissa is the head seamstress and crafty scientist who works on creating everyday things a little bit cuter, and a little bit greener, by using recycled and vintage fabrics and anything else she can get her hands on. They’ve just had a baby and have started to design green baby items, too. Melissa also has her own blog, too.

Lucky you! Melissa is offering a coffee cuff made from recycled and vintage fabrics to 3 lucky readers! What a great way to protect your hands, save cardboard, and make a really great eco-statement!

    I love Etsy and I think these cuffs are so cute! But I don’t drink coffee or tea and I am wondering in what way they are saving cardboard… I mean, you can’t drank out of cuff, so if you are using cardboard cup, these cuff won’t help you save cardboard, isn’t it?

    Sorry if I look completely out of it, I am not a native speaker.

  2. Kirstin Says:

    No problem, Coccinelle! Many people use re-usable coffee travel mugs when they’re outside of the home. These could be used on them. Or, if you forget yours or don’t have one and use the paper cups that are used at coffee shops, having this in your bag would eliminate the need to use the cardboard cuffs that come along with the disposable cups.

    Hope this helps,

  3. These are too cute. I haven’t been able to get my mother off of her Starbucks habit (with reusable cups), but these would at least save the cardboard coffee cuff she uses every time.

    I like all the designs, but the bird especially.

    Great giveaway! Thanks.
