Give an eco-gift this season idea 2: Guitar-string bracelet supports mental illness nonprofit

As the holidays approach, we will provide options for hip, one-of-kind recycled gifts that can make your loved ones feel special all year long. Next up, a stocking stuffer idea from Strung Up Jewelry that is made of recycled guitar strings that were supposed to end up in the trash. The hand-made piece consists of a thin braid of guitar strings with pewter or antique silver-plated beads and a hand-crafted stainless steel hook to close the bracelet. In addition, buying it means you will help others.  A portion of all monthly proceeds go to Concerts of Hope, a nonprofit that supports people suffering from mental illness.

It costs $32.
