Recycled Rara Heart Pin

Item # 38467
In Stock

Wear your heart on your sleeve -- or anywhere else you care to pin it -- with a colorful brooch made with recycled materials in Haiti. A beautiful way to share your love with the world.

In the spirit of traditional Haitian rara bands -- who create instruments from coffee cans and other discarded items to play in street festivals -- our heart pin is handmade by artisans in Haiti out of recycled materials as part of the RARA project. The RARA Project helps underprivileged Haitian women generate income to provide for their families, and trains them in skills such as sewing and weaving, all while promoting environmental responsibility.

Each purchase provides an extra donation to GROW -- Girls' Right to Opportunity Worldwide. Through this program girls in developing countries are provided the opportunity to attend secondary school, in turn providing them with a economically better, healthier future.

  • Made of recycled materials
  • Safety-pin style back
  • 2.5" dia. (6.4 cm)
  • Handmade in and fairly traded from Haiti
  • While color will be consistent, the unique nature of each pin ensures the pattern will vary

July 24, 2013 - Gorgeous piece. Love, love, love it! Planning on getting more :)

January 20, 2013 - Did not care for the pin. Definitely not jewelry. I appreciate that they wanted to make something from trash, but would not want to give as gift as intended.

January 3, 2013 - I really like this pin! I bought five of them, to put in different christmas presents - and I love the way they are made! From trash from the street, and that it helps funding the Haitians. Just love them! And I love the way Greatergood have packed in information to the reciever about the heart and it`s real value!

December 26, 2012 - I thought this was such an interesting pin. Bought it for my co-worker who collects and wears all unique pins and I love that the money goes to helping the Haitians affected by the earthquake.

August 17, 2012 - Didn't love it as a brooch. Crafty? Yes. Cute? Yeah, but ... Jewelry? Not so much. It was a gift for someone else and I'm glad I got it on sale. Definitely worth the sale price (not that I remember what it was). Wish I'd seen the suggestion of turning it into an ornament ... Recipient loved it (or professed to love it, anyway) though.
