I’ve always considered myself environmentally conscious but my awareness has been heightened in the last few years, especially after the birth of my son Quincy. The decisions we make around the food we eat, the air we breathe, and the waste we produce will have a lasting effect on us and many generations to come. So with Earth Day upon us, I love knowing that sustainable designers like John Hardy are working towards a greener future with programs like Wear Bamboo, Plant Bamboo. A portion of proceeds from the Bamboo Collection are used to plant bamboo seedlings in Bali, the same country where the jewelry is handmade by local artisans steeped in a tradition of excellence. And in celebration of Earth month, John Hardy is donating an additional percent of sales to support Trees New York and their mission to plant 100 evergreen trees in New York City by 2015. Now, that’s a mission we stand behind. Happy Earth Day!
