2/27/13When Design and Saving the world Collide: 31 Bits

31 Bits
As someone who has always been passionate about design and social action–I absolutely love and admire companies that manage to combine the two–31Bits is one of those companies.

Besides making jewelry that is both recycled and really fun to wear, they also provide their designers and makers in Uganda with English lessons, finance training, community groups, health education and vocational training with the goal of both having a successful, fashion forward business and assisting women in Gulu, Uganda to rise above poverty.  You go girls. Check out all the styles on 31Bits. There’s a lot to love .

    Thanks so much for finding these beauties (in all senses of the word!) I love your taste and if I can be inspired by your style AND make a difference in the world, that’s pretty darn awesome:) Shared with my readers here: http://seektobemerry.blogspot.com/2013/02/turning-corner.html Thanks for the inspiration!

    Justina, I follow a lot of blogs. ALOT. Mostly design blogs, as I’m an Interior Designer. I end up unfollowing many blogs that are mostly fashion or foodie, etc. I just don’t have time!
    I LOVE your blog. You are fabulous, real, beautiful and show us so much depth and breadth. You are my favorite.
    I rarely comment, but I wanted you to know. You are my favorite.
    Oh, and your baby is scrumptious!
