But luckily for you, we've got you covered because today we are sharing with you a fantastic Valentine's day gift idea for your significant other (or best friend - because friends deserve awesome gifts too)!
So if you're ready to slay Valentine's Day 2019... Read on friends.
Wooden Watches: The Perfect Sustainable Valentine's Day Gift.
Enter Jord Wooden Watches.
Timeless and elegant pieces that are also vegan and sustainable, made with the environment in mind. Music to my ears.
Jord Wood Watches are a modern twist to your traditional watch - with straps made out of wood instead of plastic (which is killing our planet) or leather (which is not vegan), and clasps made with stainless steel which is friendly to those with nickel allergies.
wood watches vs plastic or leather...
I'll be honest with you guys..
I haven't worn a watch in a long time, that is until recently because I am not taking this Jord Wood Watch off, ever, okay maybe to shower.
But back to what I was saying... I haven't worn a watch in a long time mostly because the ones I own have either leather or plastic straps - and did you know that plastic can leech toxic chemicals into your system through your skin? ah.
So when Jord Watches contacted me about their sustainable Wooden Watches line - I was intrigued. I love it when companies take traditional practices and revolutionize it with brand new methods that are modern and have a positive impact on the environment.
from fallen trees and old furniture to a new watch:
Jord Wood Watches are made mostly with wood from fallen trees or furniture remnants - how cool is that? Talk about re-purposing. This company is taking something with little value that would most likely end up in a landfill otherwise, and turning it into these gorgeous pieces of art.
And that alone is amazing. but there's more...
Jord Wood Watches do not, I repeat, do not use any toxic or hazardous chemicals on their wood watches. Nope. Not a zilch. Just natural substances - one in particular called Tung Oil.
Tung oil is commonly used on wood to give it that nice-sorta-shiny finish look to it. Tung oil is derived from the seeds of Tung Oil Tree, which happens to be toxic, however, the actual oil is not! It is even approved for food contact by the FDA and has a low environmental foot print. I did my research folks.
I have one rule when it comes to promoting brands or products on this website, and it's very simple. If I wouldn't use it myself, then I'm not going to promote it to you guys, because what's the point in that? In full disclosure, I did receive my watch for free but all opinions expressed here are my own.
I really really really am in love with these wooden watches and I think that any vegan-earth-loving-sustainable person in your life will totally LOVE them too.
so where can I buy a JORD wood watch?
