Alex and Ani are one of the few accessory brands we’ve seen that manage to successfully fuse luxury and eco-awareness. The brand’s philosophy is about quality and unity, with a design aesthetic that focuses on natural beauty and recycled materials.
We have two limited edition “Mother Earth” expandable bangles to give away, courtesy of Alex and Ani. The “Mother Earth” collection was created to raise awareness about the need to protect our environment. Each piece in the collection features a charm that has a compass-like sphere encasing our globe, and is expandable to fit all sizes.
Entry into the competition is simple; all you have to do is reply to this forum thread saying what you do to give back, and how you are helping others and the environment. Enter to win by July 8, 2009.
In addition to being eco-friendly, each Alex and Ani piece has symbolic meaning that fuses glamour and consciousness. The line is popular with heaps of celebrities like Drew Barrymore, Gwyneth Paltrow, Miley Cyrus, Vanessa Hudgens, Eva Mendez, and Cameron Diaz. You can find it at various high-end stores including Henri Bendel, Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Fred Segal, Scoop, Anthropologie, Shopbop.com, Bluefly.com, Chickdowntown.com, 25park.com, and Revolveclothing.com. The company’s concept of Charity By Design allows for proceeds from the sale of the jewelry line to go toward charitable causes such as relief efforts for the survivors of natural disasters and wildlife preservation efforts.
Don’t forget to put in your entry before July 9 – and good luck.
