I wanted to share some of my favorite eco friendly Etsy finds, this group of finds are all local to Pure Naked Soap and handcrafted here in Connecticut.
These delightful votives from Bright Edge Candles located in Ashford, CT. Soy candles are cleaner and longer-lasting than regular paraffin wax candles. They avoid the carcinogens, headaches, and staining of walls and ceilings that often come with burning ‘traditional’ candles. Soy wax is washable with hot, soapy water, making it easy to reuse containers! Pick up an 8 pack here for $20.00
Beautifully crafted earrings from Persimmon Pearl made with recycled and fair trade materials! Recycled blue sari silk cocoon earrings…..Fair trade recycled sari silk in a gorgeous iridescent sea blue-green is wrapped onto blackened brass wire, with blackened copper, and silvery glass seed beads. Very beachy bohemian!! These fiber earrings are eco friendly with two beautiful aqua recycled glass beads beneath. Oxidized sterling silver ear wires. Total length is 2 1/2 inches. Find them here for $38.00.
Organic cotton tote bag perfect for the farmers market, from And Morgan located in Bristol, CT. This 100% certified organic cotton tote bag features packets of seeds…perfect for the gardeners and veggie lovers in your life! This bag is perfect for the farmer’s market, as a grocery tote bag or for everyday use. It is printed here in forest green ink, but can be printed in a different color. Just message us and ask! We screen print these tote bags to order in our shop in Connecticut. Since these tote bags are each hand crafted and made to order, there may be slight variations in placement, but they are all beautiful! Find one here for $22.00
Natural dryer balls from Haddam, CT. They are made with 100% wool roving – no yarn, no styrofoam centers, no tennis balls wrapped in wool. Use in place of smelly dryer sheets containing fragrance that have to be thrown in the garbage after each use. Find a set of 8 here for $44.00!
Don’t forget! To help support some of my fellow Etsy sellers I will be posting a monthly update featuring some unique items found on Etsy, with some background information on the Etsy shop owner. I will be looking for products created in the spirit of Pure Naked Soap, natural, renewable, environmentally friendly and unique. If you sell on Etsy and have an item you would like featured in October, please post a link in the comments and a brief overview of some of your background information. What motivated you to create or collect? What makes your products special? What is your story? What are your business goals for the next year? What do you love most about selling on Etsy? What advice do you wish someone had shared with you when you first opened your Etsy shop?
