Silver Butterfly & Hummingbird Jewelry Raising Money for The Nature Conservancy

Zealandia Designs continues a long tradition of raising money for The Nature Conservatory. This year, sales of their butterfly and hummingbird pollinator jewelry from October 3rd to November 3rd

Boise, United States - September 12, 2019 /NewsNetwork/ —

October 3rd is National Butterfly and Hummingbird Day! In celebration of the national holiday, between October 3rd and November 3rd Zealandia Designs will donate 5% of proceeds from sales of designs featuring butterflies and hummingbirds to The Nature Conservancy.

The Nature Conservancy has many programs that protect and educate about important pollinators like butterflies and hummingbirds. This effort to raise funds by Zealandia Designs continues a long company tradition of being a financial supporter of the Nature Conservancy and many other similar charities.

The family-owned business is honored to sponsor an additional charitable opportunity to bring awareness to important environmental causes. The company’s products include sterling silver jewelry and accessories featuring fossilized ivory and semi-precious stones.

Much of Zealandia Design’s jewelry features totemic animal imagery such as sea creatures like turtles and mermaids and pollinators like bees, hummingbirds, and butterflies.

Pollinators are vital to a healthy ecosystem. When discussing pollinators, bees usually get all the attention but they’re not the only ones. Butterflies and hummingbirds are also pollinators, though often overlooked in this category.

By designing and selling butterfly and hummingbird jewelry, Zealandia Designs hopes to help keep the conversation going about all pollinators and why they matter.

Why is pollination important? The pollination process leads to fruit, nuts, and vegetables that are essential to the human diet and environmental ecosystem as well as to the production of seeds that continue the growing cycle.

What do butterflies and hummingbirds have in common? What can you do to help butterflies and hummingbirds? Those interested can find additional information in the company’s blog post here: https://www.zealandia.com/blog/2019/09/03/hummingbirds-butterflies-zealandia/

Zealandia Designs has been designing totemic, nature-inspired jewelry since 1987. Their handcrafted designs feature ancient fossilized ivories, sterling silver, shells, and gemstones.

The company is deeply committed to the ethical use of ancient ivory. The use of fossilized ivory from extinct mammoths is particularly poignant when discussing the plight of endangered animals and threatened habitats. The company’s use of fossilized walrus tusk helps support the indigenous Yupik people of St. Lawrence Island in the Bering Sea.

Those interested in learning about what can be done to help pollinators of all kinds before it’s too late and the world loses these beautiful pollinators can see additional information at the company’s website listed above.

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Jan 26, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Tiger quadruplets in Berlin zoo treated for knee problems

Jan 26, 2020

BERLIN — A Berlin zoo says four young Sumatran tigers are undergoing treatment for knee problems. The quadruplets were born in the summer of 2018 and as they started to develop, zookeepers noticed abnormalities in the way the cubs ran, the Tierpark Berlin said Wednesday. CT scans revealed all four tigers had knee misalignments that were causing cartilage damage. That damage is now being treated, and an expert team is to sit down in the new year to discuss long-term strategies to help the tigers. “We don't want to just rely on our own judgement. We will sit down with...

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Jan 26, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

Try something new with uncommonly delicious (and ugly) fruit

Jan 26, 2020

As I savor one of my just-picked American persimmons (Diospyros virginiana), I'm reminded how this fruit — and a few other delectable fruits — would never sell. Why not? Because they're ugly! Although the persimmons hung from the branches as handsome, plump, orange orbs up to a few weeks ago, by now they have shriveled and their skins are darkening to brown and black. The texture and flavor have likewise changed. They once were like dried apricots that have been plumped up in water and then dipped in honey with a dash of spice. Now, they've become mushier, with some...

Millennial Money: Secrets of a Black Friday Shopper

Jan 26, 2020

My husband and I have a Thanksgiving routine. Before the family arrives or the turkey is carved, we gather in the living room. As Christmas music plays in the background, he turns on his laptop, and I mine. That's when the deal hunt begins. Some people cringe at the thought of shopping on Thanksgiving or Black Friday, but I revel in it. Maybe it's because I love a good bargain, or because I write about how to save money. Whatever the reason, I know a lot about Black Friday. And I'd like to share some secrets with you. SHOPPING EARLY...
