Auction for a Cause is a collaboration of TEAM ECO ETSY sellers who have come together to auction their wares in order to promote handmade, eco-friendly goods and to support a worthy organization. This auction is entirely a non-for-profit auction and all proceeds will be donated to THE NATURE CONSERVANCY.

The benefit auction started preparations in the spring of 2008, and each participant that
donated to the auction basket were required to follow a set of rules for their items:
● Every item is Eco-related in some way. These include repurposed, recycled, up-cycled,
and eco-friendly products.
● Every item is handmade.
● Every item includes a small card that describes the item and how it relates to ecopractices.
More than 60 individual items are contained in this beautiful, eco-friendly auction
handcrafted by people who care about nature and our environment. The total of all donations
is valued at more than $300 retail.


Donation photographs will be available beginning October 20, the first day of the auction.

Great auction and team as well. I wanted to blog about this but couldn't figure out (tried it to) the inserting of the moving icons. This looks great!

I love this post, too! I put a little blog post about it, but I haven't had time to give it what it deserves. I couldn't figure out the moving icons, but I ended up saving the solid image as an image file and posting that. Go EcoEtsy!
