There’s a lot of good to be said about a company that dedicates its time to not only making quality products, but also working to improve the lives of those customers and their families. Organic Tagua Jewelry of Stuart, Florida is a wonderful company that wants to give back to the community through its amazing, handmade jewelry.
Tagua Jewelry began as a way for founder and creative director Soraya Cedeno to help out families in need, especially families with Autistic family members. That led to the creation of her Tagua puzzle piece bracelet, which in turn allowed her to launch her business, Organic Tagua Jewelry.
Every product sold by Organic Tagua Jewelry is handcrafted from the native Ecuadorian palm tree nut of the same name, which comes from the Tagua tree. Also known as the Ecuadorian Ivory Palm, the Tagua can be washed, dried, and carved into beautiful pieces of jewelry, or even shirt buttons. It has the same appearance, density, and feel as animal ivory, without doing harm to actual animals or the environment where ivory is normally harvested.
All of their products are organic, eco-friendly, and sustainable, so you can be certain you’re purchasing products that will be safe for your customers and the environment.
Organic Tagua Jewelry only uses high-grade certified organic vegetable dyes imported from Italy to color their beautiful products.

Have you ever wondered how the mass use of plastic bags by consumers and retailers affects the Earth’s environment? Answer: not in a good way.
More than 500 billion plastic bags are used each year worldwide, and hardly any of those bags are recyclable. Not only that, but they also cost U.S retailers $4 billion per year for consumers to use and throw away, leading to an endless cycle of buying bags and throwing them away.
Good Earth Bags wants to change this problem, however, with their 100 percent recycled and reusable Jute bags!
These bags are made from plant fiber and will naturally degrade once they are discarded, unlike plastic bags, which can take up to 1,000 years to completely disappear!
With Good Earth Bags, you and your consumers never have to worry about negatively affecting the environment with harmful plastic bags ever again. For eco-friendly bags that are both durable and fashionable, check out the products from Good Earth Bags!
Shoes are an important part of one’s fashion style. The shoes can make or break an outfit, transforming a person into an elegant and refined aristocrat, or a fun and swanky street walker.
But sometimes, shoes are more important than for just making a memorable fashion statement; they can also change a person’s life.
Indosole came to fruition thanks to a surf trip by a couple of young Californians to Indonesia in 2004. It’s here that they discovered the environmental issue facing the Indonesian people, and sought to do something about it. But how?
Their solution to pollution is a shoe that is both fashionable and functional.
Indosole takes old and discarded rubber tires and transforms them into re-purposed footwear that is both toxic-free and environmentally sustainable.
By taking the old tires that would normally crowd landfills and be burned up, releasing toxic fumes, Indosole takes these tires, cuts them into shape, and applies them to the bottoms of handmade fabric shoes and sandals.
Each Indosole creation is handmade by artisan craftsmen and women, and uses only locally sourced and animal free materials during production, to ensure products that are completely friendly to the environment.
Indosole’s products come in a variety of styles, shapes, and colors, in both men’s and women’s collections. Both collections feature styles like the Boat Shoe and canvas slip-ons, called Kelapas.
There are also casual sneaker styles, including Kota lace-upshoes, and JJs, which are a low top comfortable everyday shoe.
Water bottles are a necessity for many situations, whether you’re hitting the weights at the gym, going for your daily jog, or hiking through mountainous terrain. Staying hydrated during these activities is a must.
The problem with most water bottles, however, has less to do with holding water, and more to do with how inconvenient they can be to carry around with you. Because, let’s face it, water bottles are bulky and heavy.
So, when Craig Madaus — founder and inventor of the Bübi Bottle — came up with the idea for a collapsible, squishy water bottle that can store both hot and cold water, he knew he had a recipe for success.
After losing his advertising job in New York, Madaus roamed the cities looking for work, but to no avail. He spent his time doing yoga and hanging out in coffee shops, until eventually getting a temporary job working for a sailboat crew.
During a trip from Connecticut to St. Thomas, the crew’s sailboat encountered a terrible storm, that tore their sail and stranded them on the water for a few days. With their supplies dwindling, the crew had to make sure to save their water supply, and sparingly sip water from plastic water bottles.
This is where Madaus got his idea for creating a collapsible, sustainable water bottle. While crushing one of his plastic water bottles and throwing it in the trash, he came up with an idea for a reusable bottle that could do the same thing. Thus, a new entrepreneurial business was born.
The Bübi Bottle has a number of features that place it way above the competition:
microwave and freezer safe
will never release harmful chemicals
reversible, for easy cleaning
Not only is it a great water bottle, it also functions as so much more. The bottle can be used for hot and cold beverages, as an ice or hot pack for sore muscles, as a stress reliever, and for warming hands and more during cold winters.
Your customers can also use the waterproof bottle to store things besides beverages, including cellphones, keys, laundry detergent, rice, oatmeal, matches, bandages and more!
They also have a line of baby bottles, that are safe for children to use, called Babi Bübis. Their soft exterior, and lack of harmful chemicals, make them perfect for toddlers and children.
The Bübi Bottle is a fantastic, and innovative product that your customers will love! It’s design and wide variety of uses make it a perfect gift for any family member or friend!
