We've mentioned Bali-based John Hardy company's commitment to the environment . The company is now behind a pilot project to plant bamboos and reforest Nusa Penida, a small island off the coast of Bali. Local families will be provided with bamboo seedlings and training in sustainable cultivation of bamboo and other hardwoods. To support the project they have created the limited edition sterling silver John Hardy Bamboo Collection. For each piece of jewelry purchased from this collection, John Hardy will plant a certain amount of bamboo seedlings on Nusa Penida. Each piece of jewelry is engraved with the number of bamboos actually planted. The two largest cuffs also have a special grill on the back that depicts both the bamboo theme and the Bali starling. The sterling silver cuff shown here sells for $850.
