Generous Aries is driven by a desire to give to others. Even when buying treats for herself, she makes sure that her purchase goes beyond sparkle. Her newest obsession is the gorgeous Mothering the Earth bracelet from The Leakey Collection, designers of sustainable jewelry and a member of the Fair Trade Federation. This set consists of four blue and green strands of Czech glass beads and Zulugrass beads created by the people of Kenya’s Maasai tribe. In honor of Earth Day 2012, The Leakey Collection will plant a tree in Kenya and donate $1.00 to the Earth Day’s Network’s campaign in honor of each person who purchases these bracelets on their website! Brighten up your wardrobe and do some good along the way at www.leakeycollection.com.
