Three affordable bird houses to match your own green home!

We've posted on Recycled homes for Birds/Bat/Bees before, and even on a fancy reclaimed mahogany bird house - but here are some to match our homes more budget green appearance (or my home at least!):
EarthCraft birdhouses are made from 100% recycled, laminated paperboard that is naturally water resistant. It comes with a 100% cotton hanging strap that is also bio-degradable. They are also the perfect craft paper, designed to be decorated with markers, crayons or even milk paints (the top photo). And at $12.99, they are reasonably priced and would make a great gift for a niece or nephew!

Shown below, the Wren House from Doctors Foster & Smith is made from recycled milk jugs. The flip-open roof allows for easy cleaning and at $18.99 it's a slightly more solidly constructed choice than than the EarthCraft birdhouse.

Finally, for those craving more ndividual style, baconsquarefarm on Etsy offers an Upcycled Modern Green Birdhouse with a recycled tin-steel roof, and removable base for easy cleaning. At $30, it's the priciest but who said style came cheap.
