Did you know that April is National Earth month?
That’s right, a month-long event scheduled for April 1 through April 30 at Union Station in Washington, DC, featuring interactive, eco-friendly experiences to raise awareness of environmental issues and encourage sustainability. Earth Month 2013 represents a significant expansion of Earth Day festivities normally celebrated April 22. (To learn more about Earth Month, click here!)
Join millions of people around the world and unite with the sole purpose of celebrating National Earth Month by looking for your community’s local efforts and meaningful programs. In the meantime, why not start the celebration at home with crafting projects that recycle, repurpose, and reuse. Responsible manufactures such as Diamond Tech are coming up with alternative crafting projects that provide a value proposition as well as social, emotional, and therapeutic benefits that balance in perfect harmony with any Earth Day celebration.
For example, last year Diamond Tech introduced the Generation Green Bottle Cutter and Kits. These eco-friendly products allow craft enthusiasts to recycle and reuse glass bottle and jars otherwise bound for the trash. This year they are giving crafters all over America a way to transform their ho hum gardens into an enchanted one filled with winged beauties by introducing the Mosaic Butterfly Feeder Kit.
Hey, why not invite these beautiful creatures to take part in our celebration? This kid-friendly kit contains a 2-piece reusable feeder mold, tumbled glass rescued from a trip to the landfill, glass butterflies, cement, sand, instructions and fun butterfly facts right on the box. Its shallow well holds sand and salt along with water. When the water evaporates, butterflies are attracted to the minerals left behind from the hard water and salt. Over-ripe fruit can also be place on the rim of the feeder to allure butterflies. Place it in your outdoor space and transform it into an enchanted butterfly garden. Now, that’s a perfect way to celebrate Earth and nature!
Gardens Take Flight!
There is nothing quite like a garden filled with butterflies. Attract these winged beauties with this sand-and-water feeder, designed to hold on to natural minerals after the water evaporates.
This kid-friendly kit contains a 2-piece reusable feeder mold, tumbled glass, glass butterflies, cement, sand, instructions and fun butterfly facts right on the box. Its shallow well holds sand and salt along with water. When the water evaporates butterflies are attracted to the minerals left behind from the hard water and salt. Once butterflies know where they can find these minerals, they will return regularly. Place overripe fruit on the rim of the feeder to allure butterflies. Use it in your outdoor space to transform it into an enchanted butterfly garden.
