This stretch bracelet measures 17cm / 6.5 inches in length. The adjustable version with cotton thread fits any size of wrist between 13 cm (5.2 inches) and 24 cm (9.5 inches.

Gift packaging - A Gift that gives back
Every band comes in its own drawstring fabric pouch together with a planting certificate for your 10 trees. You address your certificate personally (by hand) which explains how your trees combat global warming to help people and animals alike. There is also a gift card on which you can write a personal message, the back of which tells you all about The Great Barrier Reef and why it is disappearing before our eyes.
Your bracelet & care
The tempered glass beads will hold their colours in water although they should not be exposed to perfumes, chemicals, cosmetics and the like. The 24K gold plated beads should be treated like all gold jewellery (see care guide).
Your order will be processed within 2 business days of receipt. Shipments are tracked and details for the delivery service you choose are shown on checkout.
Kemps Ridley Sea Turtles
Kemps Ridley Sea Turtles are the smallest of the 7 species of sea turtles. They grow to just two feet long and weigh less than 100 pounds as adults. Being so small makes them vulnerable to just about everything humans can throw at them - discarded fishing nets and plastic bags which they eat or get caught up in, the many threats posed by climate change damaging their nesting grounds - eroding beaches - and up setting the gender mix of their population (hotter sand temperatures mean eggs hatch as females not males), and they are hunted for their meat. But their story is one of success at least so far! Numbers of Kemp Ridley Sea Turtles dropped to around 200 females in the 1980s and since then have recovered to a few thousand! Kemp Ridley sea turtles remain endangered but show what can be done when we put our minds to it. Your trees each absorb 22 kgs of CO2 a year for life, they cool our planet combating rising sea levels, protecting nesting habitats like beaches and feeding grounds like coral reefs.
