How about a little glass bead bangle or ear dangle to show that you care about global warming? Well, this is the intent of Amanda and Jeff Haney, founders of Green Beads for Global Awareness,in the creation of their bead jewelry. Amanda explained, “we wanted to make a difference in some way…. and jewelry seemed like a good idea!”
Instead of donning the ever popular Livestrong bands with your charity du jour, consider highlighting that diminutive wrist with either a beautiful tree green glass (picture to the right) or recycled sea green beaded bracelet with an attached silver “go green” charm. Who said showing your support can’t be done with style? The price I might add can’t be beat. The recycled bead bracelet retails for $15.00 and the tree-green bracelet retails for $12.00.
What else do they sell you wonder?
The Company also offers other bracelets, eco-necklaces, and dangling earrings in assorted colors. The earrings pictured to the right contain recycled paper beads all strung on sterling silver. If you are more of a hippie girl, then take a look at the Company’s green beads and hemp bracelet made with fair trade beads. All of their products can be purchased on the website.
I happen to love glass bead jewelry. Over the last couple of years, this is all that I have bought. I am quite smitten with the Company’s green dangle earrings, and they will look great with my spring wardrobe.
The Company is committed to low impact living, so in that vein, all of the Company’s shipping mailers are made out of 100% recycled materials with 25% post-consumer recycled content. In addition, 10% of their profits are being donated to such charities as Trees for Life and Carbonfund.org that are helping to change the world.
Amanda tells me that they are constantly looking for new colored beads and will be updating the site regularly. So, keep checking back for more new green bling.
