The Hippie Hobby Provides Sustainable Crafts

Local entrepreneur Heidi Koffman and working mom Jennifer Racer have launched The Hippie Hobby box, a bimonthly subscription service that takes the guesswork out of DIY crafting by offering subscribers fun, stress-free projects with a natural twist, delivered to their doorstep. Registration begins in August for their first distribution, which ships free to anywhere in the U.S. in September.

A cornerstone of The Hippie Hobby box is that from the components used to the packaging paper, it offers a DIY craft kit that incorporates natural, recycled or upcycled materials, making The Hippie Hobby box a more eco-friendly subscription box option.

“Recycled newspaper is provided by Valley Printing,” says Koffman. “They shred it down to repurpose the newspaper as packaging material, and even provide fun and easy instructions to make your very own piece of recycled paper from the packaging. Each craft project is carefully designed and developed to leverage natural, recycled or up-cycled products whenever possible.”
