Recycled Magazine Bead Stretch Bangle
Who knew accessorizing could do so much good? Introducing our eco-friendly bracelets, handcrafted from recycled magazines destined for the landfill. Wear an armful or just one for a single pop of color.
Handmade by women in Uganda from recycled magazines -- individually hand-rolled and coated with a shiny lacquer to make them water resistant and durable -- the beads are then fairly traded to Kenya for hand-stringing...transforming them into beautifully uncommon jewelry. All the workers are paid fair, livable wages -- about five times higher than the national average in Kenya.
- Choose Blue, Green, Purple, Yellow, Melon or Multicolor
- Recycled magazine beads strung on elastic
- 2.5" dia. (6.4 cm) unstretched
- Handmade in and fairly traded from Kenya and Uganda
