#SustainableSunday with Simply Nature Bio Goods...

Sunday, August 27, 2017

Nature is one of those things that, sadly, many of the people of the world take for granted.  It's there... now... but if we continue to live the way that we're living now, one day, it'll all be gone unless we conserve and preserve it.  To that end, I am absolutely in love with Simply Nature Bio Goods.  This eco-friendly jewelry brand creates "biojewels" from totally natural materials.  

This process begins by collecting leaves and seeds from farmers in the Brazilian rainforest, who specially coordinate the collection of this organic materials with the natural life cycle of their trees.   Next, local artists skelletize the leaves, which literally means that they hollow them out so that only the "bare bones" remain.  Finally, another group of local artisans bathes the skelletized materials in recycled gold and turn them into beautiful finished goods.  The entire process is certified by the Brazilian Institute of Environmental and Renewable Natural Resources (IBAMA)!  Pretty cool!  

My new quina leaf earrings just ooze good vibes.  I think it's especially fun to wear something from the rainforest in the desert, as it creates a fun harmony of two very different biomes and eco-systems! I also love that they can be worn with a formal outfit, but are the perfect extra touch for a casual work outfit! 

What do you think?  Take a look at their shop and comment below with your favourite pieces!  You never know... there may be a giveaway in the works...
