Brand: Chureca Chic

Chureca Chic is a jewellery brand that makes jewellery from recycled paper with a protective layer. The brand got its name from Chureca, once the largest waste dump in Central America. When this waste dump was privatized, many women lost their jobs because they used the dump was their source of income. Chureca Chic is a brand originated from the Earth Education Project, an NGO that wants to help women through a training program that ensures that they can get a permanent job. The proceeds from Chureca Chic keep the program alive. Chureca Chic is therefore a brand that supports women, but the jewellery itself is also beautiful and sustainable.
