It Is Easy Being Green!

Today is Blog Action Day 2009.  Share your posts here:

In my attempts to help save the planet, and curb global warming, I'm currently trying to make Knot By Gran'ma as green as I possibly can.  Aside from using plastic bags that I have from other purchases, writing PLEASE RECYCLE on all my packaging, not sending paper receipts ( I send email receipts instead), and just trying not to be wasteful in general, I've added upcycled tags for all of my dolls.  This is what they look like.

I've also started making recycled t-shirt yarn in an attempt to keep our old t-shirts out of landfills.  I plan on making a bunch of art dolls stuffed with unusable t-shirt scraps.  They should be pretty cool.  I have one started... it's a work in progress.  I haven't decided the direction I want this doll to go in yet.  You can also shred old cotton t-shirts and add them to your compost heap, in case you were wondering.  The worms will love you for it!


I am supporting and am inviting everyone to start taking action in doing their part for our planet. On October 24th, join people from all over the world to take a stand for a safe climate future.  I am signed up to do my part and will be forwarding this email to my friends and family (feel free to copy it, and send it on to your friends and family):
