You guys. I am so excited to introduce you to Hearts.com.
You all probably know by now my love affair with TOMS shoes, and how their one-for-one movement helps children in over 50 countries. Hearts is similar– they work with 2,000 artisans around the world to create eco-friendly fashions and accessories, using low-impact processes to support the environment. They incorporate responsible materials, so they’re taking less from the planet, and positively impacting world issues and supporting people in need.
Hearts sent me the cuff pictured above (available here for purchase), and I am so smitten with it. Best of all, by wearing it, I’m supporting the Brazilian artisan community, and the quality of life in Rio de Janeiro.
About the cuff: Each ethically produced cuff is crowned with raw stones while holding value and meaning to the one who wears it. Each piece contributes to the quality of life in Rio de Janeiro. Colorless and transparent, Quartz is the greatest of all healing stones while also aiding in relaxation and visualization.
About the artisan: In Brazil, where raw materials are considered precious treasures, artisans are often paid less than the full value for their labor. This artisan community guarantees Fair Trade practices to their creators, and they work tirelessly with them to improve the artisans’ education. Protecting fair wages helps ensure that the artisans can support themselves and their families with their learned skill, to which they devote many years of practice. This family of artisans streamlines their profits back into their communities through donations to an organization that grants health care and schooling to disadvantaged Brazilian children. Due to Brazil’s immense size and vast rural areas, boosting access to education is a high priority and Hearts is proud to help contribute to a brighter future.
How fun and wonderful is that? Even better– Hearts.com is offering you all 30% off (jackpot!) with code SOANTHRO30. Cannot be used on sale items and expires on May 1st, so get browsing + buying! In addition to my cuff, I’m loving this bright Guatemala City Crossbody, Bolivia Beanie, nautical iPad sleeve, and anchor necklace.
