The Dirty Girls Compassion Bracelet is a colourful, ethically and sustainably made bracelet that empowers refugees and helps protect the environment at the same time.

The Dirty Girls Compassion Bracelet is one of the latest items in our 2019 collection of sustainable and ethical travel-themed products. The bracelet is made by our partner nonprofit, Dirty Girls of Lesvos Island, a Greek organization for refugee empowerment and environmental sustainability.

The issues this bracelet addresses:
1) The refugee crisis - According to UNHCR, 31,045 refugees and migrants arrived by sea in Greece this year alone, more than one-third of the total refugee sea arrivals in Europe in 2018.
2) The 'Lifejacket Graveyard' - Hundreds of fake life jackets are discarded on the Greek island of Lesvos as the 'luckier' refugee boats arrive every day. The life jackets accumulate in the landfills on the 'Mountain of Misery' dubbed ‘the Lifejacket Graveyard'.

The solution this bracelet provides:
Refugees are paid a fair wage to clean and upcycle the lifejackets and transform them into travel bags and bracelets. Paths Crossing is thrilled to bring the bracelets to American travelers like you. A portion of the proceeds made from the sale of these bracelets will fund Dirty Girls and Paths Crossing's social programs (youth and refugee empowerment).

The purposes:
The bracelets support two beautiful causes (humanitarian and environmental) and they themselves are beautiful too. Whether you wear it to work or on your travels, it is a great conversation piece that would spark meaningful conversations. Each bracelet is also a survivor's story, a reminder of the power of solidarity and compassion and the one refugee whose life has changed for the better thanks to you. Use your purchasing power as a force for good today, and inaugurate your new year with a Dirty Girl Compassion Bracelet!

How much?
1 bracelet: US$10 (price for a sandwich and a coffee)
2 bracelets: US$19

I am a part of a Secret Santa with my graduating class that has been going on for years now, and the person that this was given to loves games and travel. So when I found your game, I knew this would be beyond perfect for her! This is what she said: "Awesome travel themed card game with prompts to meet fellow travelers or get to know peoples travel stories! Love love love it! It will be perfect for my trip to New Zealand this summer!! THANKS SECRET SANTA" Thank you so much for bringing joy to my SS this holiday season! Anyone reading this review, definitely get this game!!! :-)
