Working together we can save the remaining natural places on Earth.  Here you can find talented artists and artisans supporting environmental organizations.  Purchasing handcrafted items from them supports the arts AND the planet.

If you are an artist or craftsman with an online presence and a love of nature, you have come to the right place.  By participating, everything you create has the potential to make a difference in the world.  To participate in ForMotherNature, you will be pledging a portion of your sales proceeds to an environmental organization with a focus on wildlife or wild places.  You may have a favorite organization in mind, or we can help you find one.
