This bracelet is gorgeous! Yet another not so normal “green” product. The Antique Tube Collection Bracelet is perfect for that person you know who always gives you a hard time about green purchases or thinks fashion isn’t involved in ethical apparel. I think everyone should love this bracelet.
Description: A cluster of gold and silver strands elegantly clasp around the wrist to create this Tiffany Kunz bracelet design. Handmade from melted bullet casings and recycled metals (brass, silver, copper) by HIV-positive women in Ethiopia. In addition to providing sustainable economic opportunities, Raven + Lily returns proceeds to fund health care and literacy programs for women and children in this community. Due to its unique nature, this piece will antique over time.
I talk about this all of the time! I am always looking for projects that involve around the house items that are educational. I have to say that the projects in The Best of Making Things sound like way more fun than most of the projects I have found. Every review I have seen so far for this book is top marks all the way around! This is very exciting for me to see. I can’t even lie I want to get the book just to test out the projects myself. I am particularly interested in the cardboard box loom!!
The holidays are coming up once again and gift buying is clearly in full swing. If you have to make purchases you know I always say to make them ethical. I have found quite a few really cute gift ideas that won’t hurt your wallet or our environment. Gift giving shouldn’t just be about having stuff, they should be meaningful. Make your presents have a statement. You could help recruit a new greenie or even just open someones eyes. Being ethical says you care for not only for our environment but the person you are giving the gift to.
My little pooch is getting up there in dog years and I recently decided that perhaps vitamins are a good idea to safeguard my baby. It is just as important for our pets to get their nutrition as it is ourselves. Pets, just like humans, need help to get much needed nutrients as they get older. My pooch isn’t necessarily deficient in anything particular so I wanted to find a multivitamin for her. I have heard good things about Pet Naturals products from some of my pet owning friends and decided to try their Daily Best Vitamin. My pup has only just had her first vitamin today, I will keep you posted.
The holidays are as usual a time of giving but can get expensive! A thoughtful gift for someone who you don’t know what to give or for pet lovers is homemade dog treats. I always find it more thoughtful to make a gift. I know we are all very busy this time of year so here is a simple recipe that is healthy for the pooches. Our pets take such good care of us it is only right for us to show them appreciation during the time of year when everyone is spending time with their loved ones.
I found this recipe here at Allrecipies.com which had a variety of other simple dog treats to choose from.
