Have you taken the handmade pledge? If you’re ready to get your handmade shop on but want to find the most eco-friendly goods available, team tags make that super simple on Etsy!
What is an Etsy Team?
An Etsy team is a group of sellers that share a common goal, passion, or craft. The artists support each other, share tips and tricks, and help promote each others’ shops. (Full disclosure: I’m a member of Team Eco Etsy and Team EtsyVeg.)
That all sounds great for crafters, but what about for shoppers? For eco-friendly shoppers, the team tags can help narrow your Etsy searches to find just what you’re after! There are tons of teams on Etsy dedicated to environmental issues. By including a team’s tag in your search, you’ll find results just from those members.
For example, if I was looking for Earth friendly purses, I could search purses and then scour through all of the results looking for recycled, upcycled, and organic finds. It makes the search much easier if I add “teamecoetsy” to my search. The results are all for purses by Eco Etsy members, who strive to run green businesses and produce environmentally friendly products.
Etsy has hundreds of teams, and navigating them all can be tricky. Here are a few teams and their tags to help you search smarter!
- Eco Etsy – teamecoetsy – recycled, organic, and vintage products
- Etsy Veg – etsyveg team – vegetarian and vegan products made without any animal ingredients
- Etsy Earth – etsyearthteam – Earth friendly goods
- Etsy Organic – etsyorganicteam – uniting sellers of organic goods and promoting an organic, sustainable lifestyle
