Coconut trees line the coast of the Dominican Republic. Locals and tourists alike enjoy drinking the sweet coconut water as they enjoy and walk along the beaches. We’ve started collecting the resulting beach trash and are processing the hard shell with hand tools into the beautiful earrings in our collection. 100% natural: no paints, stains, or compounds. 100% upcycled. 100% ethically handmade by the women at Vida Plena.
Vida Plena is a ministry arm of 2nd Mile Missions whose purpose is to spread the love of Christ by disrupting the cycle of poverty in the communities we serve. We do this by providing children and adults with educational resources, spiritual enrichment, employment and business opportunities. We invite others to observe and participate in this healing process firsthand in the Dominican Republic.
