Earth Day Hop: FlowFold & BuyGreen

earth2_1.jpg

Welcome to The Earth Day Giveaway Event hosted by Andersons Angels and Joy of Momma Joyner. This Event features a little bit of everything to help you celebrate Earth Day anytime! Each blog has gathered up a unique Earth Day Prize Package of $25 or more so be sure to visit each blog from the linky below and enter for your chance to win some really amazing prizes! This event will end on April 20th at 11:59pm EST.

I have teamed up with two amazing sponsors for this event FlowFold & BuyGreen. Both of which are enviroment friendly.

FLOWFOLD

FlowFold creates wallets made out of sailboat sail scraps. How did they come about you ask? FlowFolds were created by Charles Friedman, a teenager who had a job sewing sailboat sails in Maine. Charles carried a leather wallet that once belonged to his grandfather and eventually the wallet fell apart. He then crafted a wallet from sailboat sail scraps and the very first FlowFold wallet was born! These wallets are extremely durable, thin, light weight, and weather resistant!





I really think these wallets are unique. They are definitely a conversation starter. My husband absolutely loves this wallet. It fits perfectly in his back pocket and in his suit jacket for work! They come in a variety of colors and different styles- trifold, billfold or tarjetero. If you are looking for a durable wallet that will last, look no further! FlowFold is here!

BUYGREEN

I was able to review an amazing, eco-friendly purse.... the (small)  English Retreads Beetle Bag. This stylish purse is made from reclaimed rubber inner tubes and recycled PET lining material. It is available in 2 sizes; small beetle and large beetle. Another great option is the choice of lining color for your purse.



I chose the small beetle because I thought it would be super cute for summer.  I love traveling so carrying a smaller purse is always more convenient. Whether I am on the motorcycle, or traveling somewhere local, this purse is going to come in handy. BuyGreen also has a TON more items to choose from so looking at their website is a must.

  3. I love the idea of a wallet made from recycled sailboat sales. If I were to make a wallet out of recycled materials. I might look into using shower curtains. Yes, it sounds weird, but if sanitized it could be kind of cool especially with some of the cool patterns I've seen.

  4. To help the earth stay clean we geocache. While we go on our geocaching hikes, we bring bags along and pick up waste that we find. We are also careful with out own resources. If we are trying to get hot water in the sink, we collect all other water in a bucket until the water heats up. We use that water in our yard.

  19. I love recycled and upcycled anything! Just think about everything that sail scrap has seen! I wish I was handy with a sewing machine - I'm guessing there would be a decent market for wallets / cosmetic bags / purses made from wedding or prom gowns.

  36. I have loved my leather wallet as well as my current one that is a quilted fabric, so I am open to sailboat sails or any other recycled material for a wallet. Would love to see maybe use of fabric/ purse/ shoe scraps to make a wallet- to add the typical leather and fabric element but in a sustainable way.
