Review & Giveaway: Future Oxygen Eco Friendly Bracelets

Back in college and later on, I had a hemp necklace with a skull bead that I wore until it finally fell apart - I think about six years later? I love hemp jewelery because I never have to worry about it harming my skin with a rash, and it's eco-friendly. I've seen some really fun beaded ones, too. For some reason, they just scream "relaxing" to me.


Future Oxygen makes fun American made eco fashion to express your passion. They have some of the usual bead designs you'll see out there, as well as some other neat ones. The handmade braided hemp bracelets are nine inches long with a designed bead - each of those beads are filled with a white pine tree seed! When your bracelet falls apart, or perhaps when a special goal has been accomplished, you can plant this biodegradable bracelet into the ground and see a growing reminder. They are packaged nicely so you can gift them to someone:


Even better? The packaging is compostable too! As you can see in the photo, I received the smiley face Ecowear bracelet. With as stressful as things have been around here lately, looking down at the smiley face on my wrist is going to be a gentle reminder that things will get better. I plan to wear my bracelet until we finally get our piece of land back home in Texas. I'll be planting it then as a reminder that wishes can come true! (And since we'll be living as eco-friendly as we can there, it's simply perfect!)

Now the hemp jewelery can get a little wet, so unlike that necklace I never took off, this one will have to come off before heading into the shower or jumping into the pool. To plant, all you have to do is simply soak the entire piece in water for an entire day, and then plant outside or start in a pot. Don't forget to keep the dirt moist until the tree sprouts!

Maybe you have a different event you'd like to remember - perhaps the passing of a loved pet (there's a pawprint!) or pink ribbon to celebrate beating cancer. There are a lot of different beads to choose from, and each adjustable sized bracelet retails for $10.00. If you sign up for their newsletter, you'll receive free shipping on your first order! Or if you're a repeat customer, they have an Earth Day sale going on - spend $20, and you'll receive free shipping too!

Future Oxygen gives back, too. For every piece of jewelry sold on their website, Future Oxygen will donate a bracelet to a child in need through Ele's Place or Operation Military Kids.

Win it! Thanks to Future Oxygen, one lucky winner will receive a beaded hemp bracelet too! To enter, visit their website and tell us your favorite bead. Easy peasy!
