I am soooo excited to share this new product with you. I am excited for many reasons; the product is eco friendly, made in the USA, inventive, unique, inspiring and a perfect Christmas gift to say the least. Cangles, a green company in Michigan has created a great product for both women, men, teens and kids.
Cangles produces eco-friendly jewelry and gifts made out of recycled material- specifically recycled aluminum beverage cans. The high quality recycled jewelry is fashionably green and proceeds from sales directly aid the Save the Earth Foundation in their environmental research and education efforts as well as other great charities. The products are attractive and affordable and the story is inspiring.
In August 2009 four siblings who grew up in Michigan were discussing the heartbreaking drive through the neighborhoods where their family had lived for three generations. What were once thriving neighborhoods were now home to poverty and dozens of boarded-up businesses, littered with refuse. During their conversation the idea of recycling cans thrown away due to carelessness was born. The four decided they wanted to use the cans to make an environmental statement as well as a useful product and Cangles was born. They are hoping to spread the word about being environmentally friendly while putting American’s back to work. I love the fact that four siblings made a difference in their community, their state and the environment. We might not all be entrepreneurs but we all can make a difference. Shopping green, buying green and living green is taking a stand and making a change in your life and the for the lives of those around you.
Cangles sent me a beautiful weave bracelet to review and I love it, as do the ladies at work. The ladies have already asked me where I got it and our planning on purchasing one for themselves and/or for their loved ones. The bracelets come in three different sizes, several different styles and are easy to put on and didn’t irritate my sensitive skin. We our excited to share this product with our readers and Cangles is excited to giveaway one of their beautiful weave bracelets to a G&C reader.
