As of Sept 21st 2020, for every 10k gold necklace purchased, we'll fund the collection of 2,000 ocean-bound plastic bottles! That's 40 kilograms or 88.1849 pounds of single-use plastic!
With the help of Plastic Bank, funds go to the areas where plastic pollution are the worst. Locals in these areas exchange plastic waste for cash or household goods reducing the flow of plastic into the ocean. The plastic collected is then recycled and turned into new products creating a circular economy.
This necklace was designed to spread awareness to our worldwide plastic waste crisis. We hope you will wear it with pride and it will inspire you or someone you know to combat the use of single-use plastic.
Our feature charm was inspired by a real turtle named Peanut. As a baby turtle, she became entangled in a six-pack ring which was carelessly discarded. During development, her body was unable to break the plastic, giving her a disfigured hourglass shape. Fortunately little Peanut was saved, and though she has internal issues, she has led a long happy life.
This pendant carries an important message that even a single piece of litter can irreparably change a life.
This piece is constructed with our 10k yellow gold peanut pendant and a 14k gold-filled necklace. Our Peanut charms are handmade using the centuries-old technique of lost-wax casting. Every charm is crafted in Vancouver, B.C. Canada.
*Unisex design - We offer three different lengths of chain (18", 20", 24")
