5 Reasons to Buy a Project Gaia Pura Vida Bracelet

Project Gaia is excited to announce a new partnership with Pura Vida Bracelets! The La Jolla, California based company helped us create a bracelet that artistically conveys our approach to eradicating energy poverty. Here are five reasons you should buy one:

  1. Your purchase goes directly to Project Gaia to support our work in Africa, the Caribbean, and South America. A few dollars goes a long way with us – $5 can supply a family of five with fuel for up to one week.
  1. Proceeds from your purchase support the local artisans in Costa Rica who design and create Pura Vida’s bracelets.
  1. Both Project Gaia and Pura Vida Bracelets are members of 1% for the Planet, an organization that encourages business to give 1% of their sales back to the planet. Your donation helps to support and amplify their work.
  1. It is a great conversation starter. Each color in the bracelet is significant to our work and mission. The various blues symbolize the clean, blue flame that is produced from ethanol and methanol. Yellow represents the sun, signifying the renewability of homegrown alcohol fuels. Finally, the green knot serves as a reminder of our environment and the importance of preserving it with clean fuels and stoves.
  1. It looks good!

A single bracelet can help spread the word about a problem 3 billion people face every day. Share the significance with your friends and help us raise awareness.
