Countdown to Earth Day: Day 8

Serenity Book, $22

Green Coptic Journal, $17

Hand Bound Journal with Envelope, $25

I found today's featured shop for our Earth Day series over on Etsy. I don't know about you, but I keep a journal. I have since I was about 10 years old. I also keep a journal to use as my idea & recipe book for my business. I have 4 bound books pertaning to my facial care business alone. I also keep a journal for Chic & Green my my bed, as I get many blog ideas late at night.

For my personal journaling, I like pretty books. One of my favorites is my Vera Bradley journal with the New Hope fabric, as thr proceeds went to breast cancer research and it is pretty.

You'll find many Indie options for handmade journals, but you'll be hard-pressed to find many as green as Green Flag Designs on Etsy.

The books are all handmade and hand bound. The paper is 100% recycled and sourced from wood alternatives, grass, and even banana peel. The covers are upcycled, which means that discarded or disposable items are taken and given new life to make them into something lovely.

I am hoping my writers in the crowd will check out this great shop and treat themselves to a new journal as an Earth Day gift.
