Early attempts at recycling—such as using chewing gum to patch leaky coffee pots and converting banana peels into prom corsages—failed abysmally. See how sustainability has sustained itself over time with today’s Groupon to Craft Foundry. Choose between two options:

• For $12, you get $25 worth of handcrafted gifts, tea, and collectibles.
• For $22, you get a greeting-card-making class (a $45 value).

Craft Foundry arms green-minded collectors with a staggering assortment of locally made, eco-friendly jewelry, candles, and soap, as well as handiwork classes for aspiring artisans of all skill sets. Peruse the Craft Foundry’s recycled and upcycled array of necklaces and earrings to cheer up a lonely décolleté with a the Lady with Hat cast-resin pendant ($22) or spruce up a shabby garden gnome with a stylish pair of silver Tiny Leaf earrings ($25). Organic soy candles ($11.50+) exude the fragrant scent of sustainability, fostering ample illumination for pensive scribbles in a retro-patterned journal fashioned from eco-friendly papyrus and recycled emotions ($28). For each journal purchased, the arbor-minded organization Eco-Libris will plant a tree. Craft Foundry’s friendly staff can also guide browsers to an aromatic assortment of fair-trade organic teas ($7.50–$9.99) and all-natural skincare products ($5–$12.50).

Students of all skill levels can hone their handicrafting prowess through a course in DIY greeting cards, a two-hour class that covers the basics of forging creative cards for any occasion. During the course, an amicable instructor will impart knowledge on different papers and glues and discuss how eye-fetching stamping and embossing will always trump conciliatory flowers, celebratory cigars, and scribbling “sorry” on the back of an old receipt.
