Fashion with a Cause – 31 Bits!

It’s not everyday that you come across a company that is inspiring, good for the planet, good for humanity, and offers unique, handcrafted jewelry.

31 Bits is the whole package: selling gorgeous jewelry made out of recycled paper by women in northern Uganda. They are a socially minded business designed to give Ugandan women an opportunity to counter poverty. 31 Bits not only pays their workers’ fair wages, but also provides English lessons, holistic care, vocational and financial training and offers community outreach programs. They believe that business is one of the most powerful and sustainable approaches to turning scarcity into abundance, and eventually, alleviating poverty completely.

Not only is their social progress amazing, but their jewelry is too! It’s hard to believe that recycled paper can look so luxurious! The punches of color and style bring a beautiful vibe to any outfit. These are fun pieces that any girl can use to liven up their wardrobe and you will feel even better wearing it knowing that you are helping to make a difference.
