Celebrating Our Planet

Celebrating Our Planet

We are a community of quilter’s, brought together by our love of pretty prints and fun designs, but mostly by the need to create and give back.

As we encourage you to explore your creative talents within different mediums of art, we also encourage you to make your best project yet on the most perfect canvas… Earth.

There are so many brilliant ways to make our planet beautiful. Planting flowers, recycling cans and cardboard, or simply reducing waste.

Here at Missouri Star, we recycle all of our cardboard to the Hope Haven Recycling Center in Chillicothe, MO.

We want to give a huge thanks to Hope Haven Industries and their amazing employees for making our local communities a beautiful place to live!

If you are interested in recycling the boxes and other items you receive from us or other companies, we’ve found this guide to help you find your nearest recycling center!

Shopping Totes

For our in-store shoppers, make use of our reusable shopping totes! Fill them to the brim with fabric and supplies. When you aren’t in town, use them at your local grocery store or shopping mall to reduce waste and display pride in quilting all at the same time!

Get these adorable eco-friendly shopping bags!

Scrap Buster Tutorials

You can even reduce waste by quilting! Recycle old clothing or make use of all the fabric scraps laying around in your sewing room! These scrap busting tutorials will turn recycling from chore to quilting galore!

Happy Earth Day!
