Earth Day 2012

Happy Earth Day!

Last Earth Day I made a pledge to donate a percentage of my Etsy sales to The World Wildlife Fund and I am happy to report I will be sending them a check for almost $200!
I am also happy to announce that after careful consideration and research going forward 5% of all my Etsy sales will be donated to The World Wildlife Fund. I am so impressed with this wonderful organization and admire the simplicity of their mission... "WWF's vision is to build a future in which people live in harmony with nature." "WWF’s mission is to conserve nature and reduce the most pressing threats to the diversity of life on Earth."

Here at Nostalgic Summer I have been working very hard to make jewelry with this simple rule "Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle" And my new line of jewelry embodies this vision for my company.
The Re-purposed Tin Jewelry line is made using castoff vintage tins and brass bezel cups that are made in the USA!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Earth Day....make a pledge to do something good for our Mother and everyday!
"The old Lakota was wise.  He knew that man's heart away from nature becomes hard; he knew that lack of respect for growing, living things soon led to lack of respect for humans too."  ~Chief Luther Standing Bear
