Fair trade is such an important concept in all the things we buy. It means with our money we support organizations and individuals who are ethical. We put our investments into things which make our world a better place.
These Tree of Life necklaces are made with recycled glass. Local artisans are able to support themselves by turning this glass – once destined for landfills – into beautiful, useful products.
The company selling these is Moneta Jewelry, which works with a number of small artisans to help them reach larger markets. The glass comes from Chile, from a family who hand-washes the discarded glass and turns them into objects of beauty.
The necklaces are currently available in green and blue.
