As the sustainable jewelry movement is takes off, consumers have even more reason to purchase jewelry. These days, you don't have to sacrifice beauty for jewelry you can feel good about. TheGreenGirls has introduced many designers such as Yilin Choo, Alberto Parada and Jennifer Dawes who share our passion for the environment and social responsibility.
The jewelry sector has had along history of contributing to devastating social and environmental problems in developing countries. When you buy sustainable jewelry, you are helping to transform the industry, which has huge potential to lift communities and whole nations out of poverty. As an example, when cutting and polishing of gems takes place in the community from which the rough is extracted from the earth, there is a decrease in illegal trade and there is a positive impact on the local economy.
But, why stop with jewelry? Next time you make a purchase of jewelry, consider pairing it with one of the new eco-friendly accessories. They both make great gift items.
