Trend #1: Earth Day

Earth Day is Sunday April 22nd !

This day marks the anniversary of what many consider the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. Each year events are held worldwide to increase awareness and appreciation of our planet's natural environment. These events are designed to encourage environmentally aware behaviors, such as recycling, using energy efficiently, and reducing or reusing disposable items.

Many people believe the goals of this day become more and more important each year as climate change becomes a greater concern. There are many issues this day addresses including: water, air and soil pollution, overflowing landfills and global warming.

Team EFA members have many items that fit this theme well. Here are a few of them:

This shop is chock full of fun and funky
recycled circuit board products!

These little butterflies are so unique and pretty,
but also very eco-friendly!

With the re-use of the bottle caps and
the Earth Day theme, these magnets
represent the trend perfectly!

Some suggestions for tagging earth day items:
eco, eco-friendly, ecology, earth, planet, green,
recycled, upcycled, environment, nature, and mother earth.

Trend #2-Prom

With the arrival of the spring season many teenagers in the United States and Canada start planning for the formal dance held near the end of the school year called prom. Other countries have similar traditions. In Britain, Australia and Ireland they may call their gathering a 'Formal', 'Grad', or 'Debs' (short for debutante). In any case, young women will be looking for dresses and accessories to wear on the special night.

Team EFA members have some great items that would be perfect for prom:

This choker can be ordered in various colors
to match a prom dress!

This little clutch is elegant enough to fit
in perfectly at a prom and hold the "emergency" items
you don't want to leave at home!

This hair pin will add a little sparkle
to a young lady's special night!

Some tagging ideas for prom items:
formal, dance, debutante, black-tie, and promenade.
