About GreenCraft Magazine 
With an ever-growing population in today's world, waste is constantly being dumped into landfills, and the harm being done to our environment is a hot topic. The aim of the arts and crafting publication GreenCraft Magazine is to keep reusable materials out of the dumping grounds, and to keep in mind the motto of our grandparents' generation, "Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without." Each issue presents a variety of practical, functional projects that can be made from recycled, salvaged, and reclaimed materials, and shows how nearly anyone can transform something old into a handy new possession with a few simple supplies. 

Upcycling, the act of recycling an item into a product of a much higher quality than the original object, is the basis of GreenCraft Magazine, and you will be sure to find creative inspiration for reusing items such as food packaging, moth-eaten sweaters and damaged clothing, broken furniture, and other materials that some might deem unusable. Find ways to take thrift store treasures and make them into original, one-of-a-kind new possessions that will serve a purpose, be they jewelry made from spoons, baby bibs made from recycled denim, or pin cushions fashioned from traditional tweed. 

As you flip through each page, you'll garner tips to bring the upcycling lifestyles into your home, not just to save yourself a few dollars or to know you are doing your part, but also to teach our child the value of recycling and reusing. Ultimately, if each of us changes our ways just slightly, we'll make a difference -- and what a fun way to make your mark! 

Featuring Recycled Crafts and Upcycling Techniques by: 

With each new issue, Stampington & Company vows to bring the freshest, most unique approach to the world of recycled crafting. Revolutionize your crafting techniques: Bring in an abundance of new (old) materials that you never thought could be transformed so beautifully, and help to minimize your planetary footprint while you're at it!

Every day when seeking inspiration for their next creative endeavors, artists tend to be actively aware of their surroundings. Many artists are accustomed to using old items to create new artwork and are aware that the planet we hold dear is in a potentially dangerous state that we all have a responsibility to fix. Not just a typical crafting magazine, GreenCraft Magazine focuses on transforming often discarded items into stunning new uses through easily explained application of artistic skills. Any crafting magazine can give readers great tips and suggestions to improve artistic abilities, but this is a publication that teaches you how to improve artistic techniques while improving the environment one craft project at a time. More than just turning trash into treasures, this is a magazine about exploring your creative passions and individual sense of style while making a difference.

We believe creativity and environmentalism belong hand-in-hand working together to create a better tomorrow. Whether looking to make paint from safe household items, a fun rug made from old blue jeans, or how to artfully turn old CDs into pretty, painted coasters, GreenCraft Magazine is focused not just on finding ways to recycle or upcycle old items, but also on making them unique and full of personality in their new reincarnation with fun sustainable projects. As an environmentally focused magazine, our articles always focus on imbuing beauty and new purpose into old items to help readers find new solutions for protecting the planet.

In addition to repurposing ideas, GreenCraft Magazine gives tips on creating your cleaning products and beauty products from environmentally safe elements found in nature to rid your home and family of harmful toxins. Within this beautifully photographed magazine readers will find a cornucopia of smart ideas that will nurture creativity while nurturing the planet.

Since 1994, we have been bringing readers an eclectic mix of publications to fuel their creative spirits. Even though these publications are on different subjects, including sewing, cooking, dolls, quilting, and more, they all share a common thread of encouraging creativity as a means to make the world a more beautiful place for everyone.
