Recycled Glass Bead Bracelets at Macy's

Did you know Macy’s, a large department store chain with stores in 45 of 50 U.S. states, debuted jewelry made with recycled glass beads from Ghana’s Cedi Beads and TK Beads for Earth Day April 22? The two designers shipped beads to One World Products in February and March. We then consolidated them with tagua seed beads from Ecuador and recycled glass beads from Ghana to make globally inspired, environmentally friendly jewelry. Cedi Beads and TK Beads have received training and technical assistance from the West Africa Trade Hub since 2005 and 2006 respectively, and both companies are now striving to increase exports to the U.S.

And of course, you can still visit us at One World Projects for other earth-friendly designs handmade by artisans around the world.

Thanks for your support!

The Team at One World Projects
