Rad bracelets made from recycled rubber by women in Djenne, Mali.
These awesome bangle bracelets are a product of the Made With Love Project, a global initiative dedicated to raising funds and awareness for NGOs who aid women and children in need through the production and sale of products that provide a fair income for women in Brazil, Africa and Haiti. These recycled rubber bracelets are made by a Women’s Co-Op in Djenné, Mali West Africa. Paid a fair price for their work, these bracelets provide the women with a viable means of support and are sold to raise funds for L’Empire des Enfants, 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. There are a lot more awesome projects going on over at Made With Love, go go go. *Thanks to my lovely Colleen down in DC for the tip!
