Hello there Thursday Crafthackers!
I don’t have a DIY for you today, but I have a business I’d like to talk about, which has done some amazing things for amazing reasons. The company is called Etee: Everything Touches Everything Else, and it supports a cause that is near and dear to my heart. It’s also a small(ish) business that is based out of my hometown. The gentleman behind Etee has done something amazing, and it involves making an impact in the plastic that we throw away.
After getting tripped up in plastic that was floating in the river on a cold day, he was inspired to try to find a way to help us use less plastic. To try to take some of it out of our ecosystem, so he developed (in his basement) a food wrap that is not only reusable, washable, but it’s also biodegradable when it’s no longer usable.
You can buy their products online at the Etee website, which I did the other day, where you can learn not just about the product, but about the story behind it. They don’t have many options to choose from when buying, but their prices are reasonable and they offer reasonable options. I got a pack of 3 in different sizes and can’t wait to use them. I’m excited that someone out there is thinking about the earth, and that they’ve made an affordable solution, and built a business behind it. The best part is, they are hand made in Toronto.
So, not only are we helping to reduce the plastic that goes into the garbage by investing in this beautiful alternative, you’re helping to support a hand made, small business. You’re helping to support a local guy who wanted to make the world a better place.
