FUTURE OF FASHION IS ECO-FRIENDLY!

June 28, 2017

Since ages, fashion has been one of the most important factors of every civilization. People have devoted their lives to set a new trend and make themselves and others look good. In modern society, we are constantly bombarded by big brands and shown products we simply ‘’must have’’ to be prettier or more desirable. But have we ever wondered how many of those products are ethically sourced? I for one have not and perhaps I should have! I didn’t know much about the concept of eco-fashion, also known as sustainable fashion until I did my research before sitting down to do this review. Eco-fashion is very important on many levels. The concept tends to change the entire production process affecting several lives throughout. The concept of eco-fashion is based on the three R’s of recycling and the three Legs of sustainability; reduce, reuse, recycle and economics, ecology, (social) equity, that is everything needed to make the planet and the society a better place to live.
 

Needless to say, I was very intrigued with the concept itself and with the company I set out to write about. Green Tree Jewelry company is based in San Diego – California and it was founded by Lance Nybye Sr. and his son Lance Nybye Jr. to provide affordable fun jewelry from sustainable resources in the USA. As you all must have noticed by now I was already passionate before this collaboration about supporting local and small businesses so this was right up my alley. 

 

For this review, I received 3 neatly packed wooden earrings that arrived in less than 4 days. Green Tree Jewelry uses thin, strong multi-layer wood put together in a crisscross way to obtain stability and strength. This material permits to create these colorful and very light wooden earrings. The earrings were picked for me for this review, however, I still had to check out what other items they carry and I fell in love with at least 15 pairs right of the bath. So I might be going back to buy some of them very soon! 

So, let’s talk about the earrings I got:

These earrings compliment wardrobes of bold personalities and people who like to stand out by wearing something you won’t find mass-produced in your local H&M, Macy’s or Ross. I like to accessorize my look with statement earrings and bold lipstick keeping the rest of my makeup subtle so these work very nice for me. Plus, they truly are a conversation starter. I have had complete strangers ask me about them on the street! I have worn the earrings for a few weeks now and I can report that they are very sturdy and don’t look overly worn at all, in fact, they still look brand new. They have a modern vibe, which makes them an excellent accessory to summer work outfits or now to festive events. These earrings compliment wardrobes of every season very well. I like to accessorize my look with statement earrings and bold lipstick keeping the rest of my makeup subtle.

 

I have been wearing the earrings for a few weeks now and I can report that they are very sturdy and don’t look overly worn at all, in fact, they still look brand new. The prices of these wooden earrings range from $14.95 to $19.95. Heavy metal cannot beat that! I mean these are just a perfect gift for absolutely anyone. I have a lot of nieces who are into anything Steampunk or Banksy related so I am shooting for that #1 Aunt spot! 

Besides already mentioned designs, Green Tree Jewelry has a huge collection of wooden earrings covering a variety of themes from floral or animals, over seasonal, skulls, music, design, geometric, aquatic to travel related just to mention a few. They even have full-sized wooden clocks for home decor fanatics or some awesome chic wooden bracelets.
