I had the opportunity to meet up with Trisha Fast, a premiere stylist from the company Color By Amber, an jewelry brand moving towards being more environmentally friendly!
Color By Amber is a brand that hand-makes their jewelry, which has a reduced impact on the environment and helps to support women artisans in impoverished villages across the world.
Color by Amber uses Ecoresin to create all their jewelry! Ecoresin is made from PETG, a primary material used in water bottles. Their Ecoresin is up-cycled from 40% pre-consumer products and the other 60% is pure copolyester. Ecoresin is also BPA-free. And here is the BEST part, each piece of jewelry is produced in a facility in the USA that sends absolutely nothing to the landfill!
The benefits of Ecoresin is that the jewelry is flexible and clear, tough and shatter resistant, doesn’t wear out and is comfortable and smooth on the skin. I love how light the pieces are!
I love looking at all the materials that they have used inside the Ecoresin, some include Sisal Fiber from Columbia, Bear grass from South Africa, Banana Fiber and Bamboo Rings from Nepal, leaves from China, Wool and Cotton from Mexico and many other great natural products!
Here are some of the pieces I was given to share with you all!

It is great to see companies moving toward being more eco-friendly! I love that nothing is sent to the landfill, and I also love the jewelry! Shop the whole collection here!
