Eekonomy Jewelry is a rare small business. It is a business that not only strives to help support the local economy, but one that helps to support the local community. Eekonomy is a company that strives to empower those in the deaf community by providing them with jobs and a place within the Brooklyn community. Ola, the owner of Eekonomy Jewelry, says he does this so that his employees do not get the "pity" stigma attached to them. They can work and prove they are a valuable and much needed asset to the community. Ola himself is quite the role model for the younger generation. At only 22 years old he is striving to make this his career and help those in his community while running an eco-friendly company.
Second, the how. Eekonomy Jewelry uses recycled wire to make all of their jewelry products. By recycling wire that is about to be thrown out, Eekonomy saves it from going into another landfill and adding to our nation's garbage problem. If you've ever lived or spent any time in New York City you will known that it produces a lot of garbage. To have even one item removed and reused from that garbage is a huge thing there!
Third, the products themselves. I was honestly blown away by the sample products I received from Eekonomy Jewelry. As many of you know, I am working at a summer camp this summer and as part of our traditional staff members have to sing for any packages they receive. I didn't mind singing for this package one bit! I opened it up at the table of the group of kids I was around all sat there admiring the bracelet and necklace I received and were asking where I got them. They were the 14 year old girls, a little hard to please, and they were impressed. That's saying something!
Also available at Eekomy Jewelry are some beautiful and unique earrings that I would totally rock if I had pierced ears and fun rings that would make a great gift for a child, teen, or adult! Also be sure to check out the men's selection!
