At VERTE 2019, Grades of Green celebrated it’s tenth Earth Day Birthday by toasting to ten incredible years of environmental stewardship. As a special surprise, to commemorate one decade of eco-action, Grades of Green staff partnered with Oxen Jewelry to collaborate on a Grades of Green inspired necklace. Each Grades of Green Founder, Kim Lewand Martin, Suzanne Kretschmer, Shaya Kirkpatrick, and Lisa Coppedge received a customized Leaf Lariat to celebrate their hard work and dedication. Their efforts have given hundreds of thousands of students the opportunity to bring their sustainability initiatives to life.
The Leaf shaped chalcedony is wrapped and suspended on a 14k gold-fill lariat. Adorned elegantly with a variety of dainty, green chrysoprase beads. This beautiful necklace was designed to honor Grades of Green’s commitment to a sustainable future. A portion of the proceeds from this limited design necklace goes back to supporting Grades of Green.
