TLBG: Green Swap 2010


Hello again Emma here, this time and both Rachel and I are sooo excited to say that we are holding our first ever swap (well, on TLBG). We thought it would be a really fun idea to make it a 'Green' themed swap and thought it quite appropriate seeing as we have just celebrated the 40th Anniversary of Earth day.

It's entirely up to you what you send to your swap partner, it could be something Eco friendly, reusable, tips and ideas, re-purposed, organic, what ever you like. We thought it would be nice if you included at least one handmade item (after all, we are all crafty types, are we not?), so it's time to get your thinking caps on. You could even include a little card with a green tip, it could be for cleaning, recycling, shopping, cooking etc?

So.....

1. Leave a comment on this post telling us that you would like to join the swap, please state if you are willing to post internationally (therefore we can pair the non international people together).
Edited to add: Blogger comments don't give us a return email address, so please either include this in your comment, or ensure that we can contact you via your blog. Thanks!


2. Closing date for participants is Friday 7th May and partners will be drawn at random and announced on Monday 10th May.

3. Swap parcels should be sent by Monday 7th June.

4. We suggest you send 5 or 6 items, at least one of which should be handmade (eg, made from re-purposed material or an item that is reusable), and it would be great if all your items could tie in to the green theme somehow.

5. Last of all have fun and get to know your swap partner.

Don't forget to invite your friends/blog readers and followers over to join in, the more the merrier!


Edit: Signups are now closed. We'll be sorting out partners and posting details here on Monday.

NB. To the person who left the last, anonymous comment, we have no contact info for you! If you still want to take part, please email us with your blog details asap to thatlittlebitgreener@hotmail.co.uk

Great idea with plenty of scope for what to send. If I can think of sufficient items that don't weigh too much I am happy to send overseas. Count me in!
