Green Crafts, Going Green Department

Green Crafts, Going Green Department Logo Reuse! Repurpose! Recyle!

Green is the new black. With gas prices on the rise and climate change the new political buzzword, saving the environment is a growing concern, but you don’t need to live in a tree for two years like Julia Butterfly Hill to do you part and you definitely don’t need to give up your love for craft.

Let our Green Crafts department show you how to reuse stuff heading for the garbage bin and turn them in fantastic crafts – turning trash in treasure. The green craft departments motto is to Reuse! Repurpose! Recycle! Give it a try and take a look around.

Our green crafts department will put some green back into environment and at the same time, put some green back into your wallet.

“I think having land and not ruining it is the most beautiful art that anybody could ever want to own.” Andy Warhol
