Have you heard about YB Green jewelry yet?? WELL LISTEN UP BEAUTIES because this jewelry is gorgeous and has such a great cause behind it. YB Green Jewelry, designed by Yasmin Bowers, is handcrafted using upcycled glass, collected from communities that cannot recycle or are improving their environment. YB Green shows that recycling can yield stylish, high quality pieces and here is her story:
“I founded YB Green® upcycled glass jewelry in New Orleans in 2009. By wearing YB Green, you have a story to tell behind your jewelry–it’s a beautiful, colorful, conversational piece.
In 2009, I was living in New Orleans and soon discovered that I could not recycle glass within the City. The City stopped recycling glass after Hurricane Katrina, so I started recycling on my own. I then began collecting glass from around my neighborhood and making jewelry with it. I collect every single bottle, scrap and shard of glass that I find. The glass is cleaned and sterilized, then it’s cut and melted using various techniques. It takes at least 24 hours to transform and upcycle the glass into something unique and beautiful. My family still lives in New Orleans and the City holds a special place in my heart, so I will always collect glass from there to make jewelry.”
