Hello Etsians!

Please check out EcoEtsy's Auction for a Cause, where we are auctioning off a basket full of handmade, eco-friendly goodies to the highest bidder:

The auction started on October 20th and will last until the 30th! The basket has over $300 worth of eco-friendly items in it, and the winning bid will be donated to the Nature Conservancy! It's EcoEtsy's way of giving back to the environment, and you can too by bidding!

Here's the photo gallery of items that were donated:

Hi! I donated a set of 3 eco-friendly dish cloths to the basket like this set (but in light blue, dark blue, and cream):

These cloths are wonderful for doing dishes, as they are washable and reusable! You can say goodbye to throw-away sponges! These are also great replacements for paper towels! They are made from 100% cotton and really get the job done!

Man so many great things in this auction and for a great cause. Each and every one of these thing would make great gifts.

I donated a little coin purse similar to this one, only a beautiful celery green. My coin purses are made from eco-conscious hemp/certified organic cotton, hand-dyed using low impact dyes and a minimal amount of water.

Thanks so much!

The bag I donated for this auction is similar to this one in my shop:
The only difference is that the RRR symbol and handles in the donated bag are made of a reclaimed suit coat. This bag is kind of a fun way to "Bring Your Own Bag" to the grocery store or drug store in a way that makes a statement. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

Thanks to our great ecoetsy team leaders for putting this auction together. It's for a great cause!
