Tagua Nut "Palm Ivory" Cast Away Bracelet
We're nuts about these bracelets! Tagua nuts which are actually seeds of a palm, otherwise known as "Palm Ivory" for it's likeness to ivory, grow year-round in Ecuador and can be harvested without detriment to the rain forest, and promote a shift back to products that don't harm animals to acquire.
We're also nuts about elephants! So our goal is to adopt as many orphaned elephants as we can, with your help!
$10 from each bracelet goes towards adopting an elephant orphan from The Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Every 5 bracelets sold fosters a baby ellie.

Designed with love, sustainably sourced materials, handcrafted in Ecuador & Montreal.
Working with an Ecuador-based NGO, Naya Nayon, local artisans who make the special little beads we use with our bracelets, are given all the training, tools and materials they need to work from home, providing families with living wages, food, shelter, education and health care.
Making these tagua beads counters poverty and deforestation by creating new jobs that depend on conservation and responsible forest management. Furthermore, it protects the local animals and their habitats through environmental conservation and sustainable production, preserving species, caring for sick and injured animals, and promoting education that addresses the welfare of animals.
