Embracing Beauty and Sustainability: Eleuthera Earrings
Inspired by the breathtaking island in the Bahamas, Ocean Plastics Jewelry handcrafted the Eleuthera Earrings from discarded microplastics into wearable works of art that champion the cause of environmental preservation.
Eleuthera, an idyllic island nestled between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, showcases some of the world's most mesmerizing scenery. Its pink sand beaches and crystal clear waters create a paradise like setting. However, this very location also presents a challenge – the accumulation of plastic waste. According to a study published in 2019, The Bahamas' orientation to ocean currents such as the Gulf Stream and those associated with the North Atlantic sub-tropical gyre create a sink for marine plastic debris.
Wearing the Eleuthera Earrings allows individuals to make a statement about their commitment to sustainability. These stylish accessories spark conversations about the global issue of plastic waste, empowering wearers to be catalysts for change.
A portion of the proceeds from these earrings goes to Bahamas Plastic Movement. Bahamas Plastic Movement believes that through research, education, citizen science & policy change, we can create a healthy marine and terrestrial environment free of plastic pollution.
