I was on Craftzine today and I found Rhonda’s Recycled Craft Project. The idea is really simple, anyone can register by purchasing a challenge packet (for just the 20 cent cost of the listing fee) by June 1st. On June 2nd, Junkstop will mail out a packet to each person who is registered. All packets will have identical contents, consisting of an assortment of items saved from the landfill, as well as the rules for the challenge. Photos of completed entries should be posted to the Rhonda’s Recycled Craft Challenge Flickr group by July 15. The winning entry gets a $20 gift certificate to their Etsy shop.
How great is that!? It’s so simple and for 20 cents it couldn’t be cheaper. Getting people to think about what they consume and how they can reuse these things is great, you can’t put a price on that. I just bought my packet (what ELSE can you buy for 20 cents? Nothin’, that’s what). Wouldn’t it be great if you guys did it with me? Then we could all post our creations! That would be super cool.
