Sustainable Hand-Made Jewellery
Jewellery is always a great gift to give, and if you know someone who loves hand-made pieces then you should definitely check out Ipsa Designs’ Etsy website. They make earrings, necklaces, and more pieces out of recycled wood, all by hand and by Australian women.
We often forget how our everyday items can impact the environment, especially jewellery, which is why discovering a business that creates beautiful and eco-friendly pieces is essential for starting your zero-waste journey or inviting a friend to know more about it. Further, supporting Australian-owned and operated businesses is crucial for incentivizing people to stop purchasing mass-produced items that are made with a toxic and harmful process that accelerates the deterioration of the environment.
Here you can browse through Ipsa Design’s shop and see for yourself how stunning their jewellery is.
This is by far one of the coolest gifts ever, and we’ll tell you why. Reef Cycle makes eco-friendly sunglasses out of nets removed from the Northern Great Barrier. After being shredded and melted, the materials are poured into molds to create the frames for the final sunglasses.
As more orders are placed, more nets can be removed from the ocean, helping marine life stay intact and unharmed. What’s more, 50% of all profits go back to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) for conservation work.
Not only can you gift an extraordinary accessory but you can also help more than 5 different marine animal species keep living in peace. Here you can take a look at ReefCycle’s range and choose the best sunnies for a friend, including non-prescription and prescription options.
