Sustainable Accessories from Green Tree Jewelry
I recently heard about the “Green Tree Jewelry” – a company that makes sustainable jewelry and more. I was so happy to be able to try out some of their products, to give my opinion. There were so many choices on their website, and it was really easy to navigate. I picked these three (hard to believe on 2 of them, huh?):

Laser-cut wood, and stained with water based dye.

The package arrived super quickly and they were packaged really well.
I love that they are made out of wood, and not very heavy at all. I have problems with headaches, and some earrings are just too heavy for me. These have an amazing quality and don’t even feel like they are there. Plus, they are made from sustainable materials, so you can feel even better about supporting this company.
Here’s some more of the sustainable products that they offer:

About The Products:
If you are hearing about this company for the first time, you are probably shocked this is all wooden jewelry. They use a very thin, strong multi-layer wood, that has been put together in a criss-cross fashion giving it an amazing strength. Another huge benefit of wooden jewelry is how light weight it is. For example, when you put on a pair of their earrings, you will feel like you’re not wearing anything at all, giving you sense of freedom that few earrings can give.
Wood jewelry is sustainable and eco-friendly! With the modern standards and practices of the developed world, wood has re-emerged its self as one of the most sustainable resources we have. Sadly, these practices do not take place in most tropical regions of the world yet, but with more awareness and support of sustainably resourced suppliers, this will surely change.
The company hopes that wood jewelry becomes a new standard in fashion jewelry. Any little step, can make a big difference!
About The Company:
Based in San Diego California, Green Tree Jewelry was founded by Lance Nybye Sr. and his son Lance Nybye Jr. to provide affordable fun jewelry from sustainable resources in the USA. Lance Jr. & Sr. stumbled upon the idea of Green Tree Jewelry after a fire consumed their previous business of laser engraving bats. The bat business never made a full comeback after the 2008 fire, so they had to find a way to reinvent them-selves. While attending weekend craft shows and weeknight street fairs, they had the idea of using the equipment they already had from the previous business to make wood laser cut earrings. The product has come a long way from where it started and they are proud to offer not only earrings, but bracelets, pendants, switch plates, and clocks as well. Lance Jr., Green Trees designer, is laser focused on the smallest details. He is constantly improving the manufacturing process and product design. His inspiration for all his Green Tree products come from one main root. The symbolic reasoning of the mind, weather it be, a design, animal, or any Symbolic representation it must invoke a positive response. One of his favorite things to hear is, “i have never received so many complements on my earrings” . Ultimately He cares most about the customer being happy, and growing his business organically.
