Eco-Alternatives: 7 Pieces of (Sustainable) Wood Statement Jewelry

Goodlifer: Eco-Alternatives: 7 Pieces of (Sustainable) Wood Statement Jewelry

I often see something great from a conventional brand and find myself wishing there was a good eco-alternative. Well, chances are there is. At Stockholm Fashion Week, I fell seriously in love with V Ave Shoe Repair’s wooden statement necklaces, but was also disappointed that they’re not made from sustainably harvested or reclaimed wood. So, I found 7 statement wood jewelry pieces that share that same in-your-face quality but are made like we like them, sustainably.

What constitutes the good life? It’s a question we’ve asked ourselves since the dawn of time and something we all strive for. To us, the good life is not a destination but a journey. We want to see more positivity in the world. Thinking happy thoughts makes for happy people, and happy people are more productive, innovative and at peace with the world. We believe in the transformative power of good news.
