Two Etsy-treneurs have started a small company with a big idea and are doing it plastic free!!! Herban Crafts is a start-up offering DIY beauty craft kits: cologne, bath salts, lip balms, body scrub, herbal soaps. The kits are attractive, and made up of “organic, pesticide-free and planet-friendly ingredients” and contain NO PLASTIC; all packaging is made of recycled, recyclable and/or biodegradable materials. One photo showed what looked like plastic bags, but when I contacted one of the ladies, she wrote back that they are vegetable cellulose, which will break down. Right now they’re in start-up mode, with a campaign on IndieGoGo (http://www.indiegogo.com/herbancrafts), but you can also order direct from their website, http://www.herbancrafts.com. I think I just took care of a couple of birthday gifts! If you’d like more info, check out a really good interview on Crafting a Green World (dot com, of course). We need more folks like these ladies!
