When I want to create something from scratch and not upcycle from existing resources, I always look for supplies that are eco-friendly and sustainable. For example, I’ll buy organic and bamboo yarns whenever I can; when they are on sale, when I see colors I like and only when I need them.
I found out that organic labels would be a little bit of a stretch for me right now. Minimum order is 500 labels and I just don't have the need for all of them right now. So, I think I'll wait on organic labels for now and order just 30 labels from an Etsy seller, JennifersJewels for now and see how fast I go through them. :)
