the moral wardrobe: Bracelets 2 Educate

When Karen of fair trade organization, Education and More, asked if I would review their new friendship bracelets for Style Wise, I got excited. I'm not much of a bracelet wearer, but my sister and I were always begging my parents to buy us little macrame bracelets at souvenir shops in our coastal hometown as kids. Even though we didn't get along until late high school, we wore our matching friendship bracelets all summer long until the sun and chlorine wore them down. I didn't have time to send a bracelet along to my sister before getting this post together, but I do intend to send one to her soon!

Education and More is a Christian nonprofit working in Guatemala to raise women and children out of poverty through fair wages and education. The Bracelets 2 Educate line is unique in that 100% of profits go back into their education program in Guatemala. Plus, the bracelets themselves were fairly made by artisans employed through their program. The friendship bracelet idea is such a fitting one for a project that treats people with respect and love.

The great thing about these bracelets for me, a small-wristed individual, is that they're adjustable. And the ends of the braided thread are waxed so the macrame clasp stays in place once you've gotten it where you want it. If you like layering bracelets, you can buy a few and stack them. Bracelets 2 Educate are reasonably priced at $5.00-7.00 each. If you're already thinking about stocking stuffers, these might be a good choice.

These bracelets might be simple, but they're really well made, streamlined, and great for everyday wear.

Since it's my Birthday Week (the big 2-7 on the 26th), Education and More is offering 26% off your order with code, birthday.


And stay tuned for a giveaway later this week!
