Hello Hello + happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend full of fun, smiles + memories made! Today I’m back with another Intentional Shopping post. At least once a month I try to highlight a company and/or brand that is all about protecting the environment, reducing waste, and helping out their communities. Today’s post is Intentional Shopping: Bayou With Love!
My hope with these posts is only to bring awareness that there are brands + companies out there that want to help the environment + their communities. Bottom line is, we only have this planet + we should want to take care of it the best we can.
I am not here to tell you where or how to spend your money. That is not my place or my business. Only YOU know what is best for you + your family. I simply want to bring some attention to companies + brands who help our planet. However, if you decide to purchase from said brands + companies, great! If not, thats fine too!
So, now that we got that out of the way ha! Let’s get into what Bayou With Love is + how it helps the environment.
✨ Bayou With Love’s Story ✨
[I tried to reword it but they just do it so much better ha! So I grabbed it from their website! ]
“BaYou with Love is a lifestyle brand focused on sustainable, ethical fashion and production within jewelry, apparel, home and beauty. Founded and run by designer, actress and environmentalist Nikki Reed, BaYou with Love creates luxury with a story through hand-crafting our fine jewelry using recycled gold, including gold recovered from discarded technology through our partnership with Dell. Our jewelry collections include every day favorites, bespoke jewelry and brilliant bridal rings created with carbon neutral cultivated diamonds and consciously sourced stones.
Our brand focuses on sustainable production, conscious sourcing and supporting local artisans to reflect a beautiful world in which we continuously reuse resources and work towards zero waste. We strive to work with partners in our industry that share the same values as we do and believe transparency in a supply chain is the key to a sustainable future.”
✨ Bayou With Love’s Materials + Sourcing ✨
✨ Metals ✨
I though this was the coolest idea ever! The gold + silver for the jewelry pieces comes from recycled computers + electronics! Who would have thought?!
“Gold is gold, no matter where it comes from…right? So why not consider conscious sourcing?
Recycled Metals go through a refining process that separates them from their accompanying alloys, reducing them down to pure gold and platinum. Because our recycled and re-refined gold is refined back into its pure elements, it contains the same properties as newly mined gold but without the negative environmental consequences. In other words, if we have the opportunity to use gold that is of the same high quality as newly mined gold but without the level of degradation to our natural resources caused by new mining, why wouldn’t we?”
This is also a great idea! Beautiful, real, stones without conflict or hurting the environment!
“Carbon Neutral. We source most of our diamonds from the World’s First certified 100% Carbon-Neutral Diamond Producer, Diamond Foundry. Their diamonds are sustainably grown aboveground in America’s beautiful Pacific West, 100% hydropowered by Washington State’s Columbia River.”
Ugh I love EVERYTHING about this company because I feel like it is a one of the kind brands + have a wide range of products to choose from! The love + thought that Nikki Reed pours into it, you can feel in the pieces she creates! I know I know its on the pricy side. The very pricy side. However, I feel this is the company you go to for the special occasion pieces that you either want to gift or purchase for yourself. These are the heirloom pieces that you’ll pass down because they are amazing quality + classic designs that will never go out of style! You can learn more about their amazing work on their website! I didn’t want to make this too long.
I have the Large Oval Chain Bracelet + absolutely love it because it’s stunning + beautifully made! It’s the perfect piece to keep in your collection because you can wear it with jeans + tee or with a more dressed up look. The next piece I have my eye on + have had my eye on it for a while is the Three Water Opal Ring. It may just be my birthday present to myself ha because it just just gorgeous + I can see wearing it every day!
Here are more Bayou With Love pieces + products because I just can’t get enough! But please check out Bayou With Love! It is such a wonderful brand with so many amazing products!!
