News: Green Crafts Initiative going from strength to strength

25th April 2018

Celebrating Scotland's makers who are committed to a more sustainable craft sector.

Launched in 2014, the Green Crafts Initiative supports and celebrates makers with environmentally sustainable practices. We have recently re-launched our Make it Green journal series, with in-depth interviews with eco-friendly makers from our Craft Directory and useful tips for makers on reducing their carbon footprint. This series aims to inspire and educate makers on how important sustainability is for the future of the craft sector, and how they can contribute through responsible material sourcing or managing the impact of their process.

Green Crafts Initiative

A growing community

We are thrilled to see more sign-ups for the Green Crafts Initiative, and with the positive response from the craft community. Plus, this promotion has encouraged a great article in the Times newspaper on Scotland-based makers who are reducing the environmental impact of their practice.

We welcome new members to join the growing Green Crafts Initiative which we run with Creative Carbon Scotland.
