Fun, Colorful Bangles Made From Recycled Rubber

Posted: Dec 19 2012

These bracelets remind me of the 80's when I used to stack rubber bracelets on my arm, a trend credited to Madonna's "Like A Virgin" video. I love this new version, which are even better because of their vibrant color as well as their socially conscious mission. MADE WITH LOVE recycled rubber bracelets are made by a Women’s Co-operative in Djenné, Mali, West Africa. Paid a fair price for their work these braceletsprovide the women with a viable means of support and are sold to raise funds for L'Empire des Enfants.

About L'Empire des Enfants: L'Empire des Enfants, founded by A.S.A.O, is a center for homeless children from the streets of Dakar, Senegal, providing them with shelter, meals, education and training programs as well as working with local organizations to return the children to their families.

 Bracelets come in a set of 18 for $30 and are available in a variety of colors. Shop here.
