I received a couple of adorable Pura Vida bracelets to facilitate this review, the opinions within are my own! I am hosting another great giveaway from Sweet Relish today, and I was stoked when they contacted me to work with them again. I love the concept of the site and am adding my fave new things all of the time.
This time I would love to introduce you to Pura Vida Bracelets. So simple, pretty, and they look so lovely with my spring and summer outfits. But the thing I like best about Pura Vida is the company's caring message. And that they give back.
Pura Vida donates with every bracelet bought, and gives 1% back to The Surfrider Foundation through 1% for the Planet. "The Surfrider Foundation is dedicated to protecting as well as preserving beaches and oceans worldwide". And after traveling all over Costa Rica, they are able to fully support full-time work for 30 talented artisans, amazing no?
And check out their story from the site:
"During a visit to a small community in Costa Rica, they crossed paths with two men named Jorge and Joaquin who were peddling bracelets on the street. The colorful bracelets were handmade in a simple way that seemed to capture the essence of their journey. When they first met Jorge and Joaquin, they were living in a single room with three beds shared by several other members of their family. Seeing this, Paul and Griffin asked them if they would be willing to make 400 bracelets to take back to the United States with them. Jorge was delighted to make such a sell, and the guys were thrilled to help them out, but to everyones good fortune, soon after returning to the states their friendship blossomed into a full-fledged business relationship.
Upon returning to California, Paul and Griffin decided to put the bracelets into a bowl at a local boutique shop close to home. It didn't take long until they all sold out and people were asking for more. They realized these simple string bracelets were more than just your everyday bracelet, they were a movement. Pura Vida is more than just a saying, it's a lifestyle representing the simple things in life."
I really dig them, and would love a whole bunch on my arm at a time. Colorful and pretty.
