Elaine said...

Yes and no. I try to purchase products I feel good about (from companies that employ sustainable practices) but it doesn't always work out. Sometimes budget trumps values.

I definitely focus my shopping on second hand for housewares, clothing, and craft materials. And everything that does need to be bought at retail, I try to choose the more sustainable item whenever I can afford it.

Yes, the eco-credentials matter a lot to me because I try to make better environmental choices every day. I like it when products are fairly traded so growers can make a living, organic so it safer for the environment and the people growing it, and "upcycled", making the best out of waste.

You make beautiful paper crafts! I love those cards! I think that a company's eco credentials do matter. I try to choose eco friendly products when I can, but I'm not 100%, so it's not a guarantee I will buy from that company, but I think it's always a big bonus.

Yes, I try to buy green whenever I can.

To answer the question:

YES! I love products that are truly eco-friendly, not just stating they are "green" or eco-friendly in an attempt to "greenwash" or persuade consumers into buying the products.

It absolutely effects my decision, I would much rather buy a handmade dress made from re-purposed fabric, then something off the rack at say walmart.... ugh!

I would love to win your beautiful re-purposed art :)


Jblanton said...

Yes, it does- I love vintage!

I'm not sure if that phrase spills into organic, but I know that I'm more aware of the food I put in my and family's mouths, and baby items. To be honest, there are so many new terms for being green, I sometimes get lost.


DEBIJOT said...

Yes, whenever possible.
