What's Up With Team EcoEtsy

As the leader of the EcoEtsy street team, I thought I would take some time to blog about the who's and what's of the team. To be honest, the back office part of the team, which is my job is taking up most of my time lately. This is not necessarily a bad thing, as I know all the hard work will pay off, and It already is. 

We have grown as a team so much in the last 6 months, that just have to brag about a few things. 

First, we have a team blog. The blog is ran by Letitiah, me, Kittenmiami, Fashiongreentbags, and Lapomme. We do weekly Eco tips, donated by the team members. We hope to one day compile all those tips into a zine and sell in our up and coming team shop. Each week, we also do a little game called theme nominations. The members scour Etsy by searching our team tag, 'teamecoetsy', and try to find items that match the theme of the week. It's a lot of fun and you get to discover new shops.

We also just launched a team website, ecoetsy.com. Shutterkate is the brains behind the site. We thank her greatly for her hard work in getting this site up so quickly for us. This is a huge milestone for the team. It will expand our web presence and give us another outlet to spread the green love. The site was just launched today, so check it often and watch it grow. We will soon have our team shops listed by category, a bio of the team, and any events and team sales that we have planned for the future listed on the site.

A very talented designer and team member, Lolaness, has donated her time and skills to create a series of promos for the team. They are hosted on her personal website. The team members are able to visit her site and download the templates and print them out using found and recycled paper. Each season, Lolaness comes out with a new design to reflect the time of year. Since it's spring, she just launched our spring promos. They are better than ever! We even have seed packets we can print and put seeds into as little gifts in our packaging. 

Lately, most of my time has been going to a series of Storque articles that the EcoEtsy and Trashion Teams are collaborating on. In celebration of the upcoming Earth Day, we are writing all about green living, shopping, crafting, etc. I must read. The articles are due April 9 Th, but we don't have a definite date for when the articles will be launching. 

With all this excitement going on in the team, I can't help bu be proud to be a leader of such a wonderful group of people. I'm truly blessed to be a part of a team that shares the same values and morals as I do. Thanks a lot team for all your hard work!
