peaceBOMB

Laotians have a lot of garbage to deal with.

Millions of bombs (most exploded, some not) litter Laos’s forests and countryside, the legacy of a decade of unthinkable bombardment during the Vietnam War.   Some citizens have found resourceful ways to put those tools of destruction to good use.  That’s how peaceBOMB began.

Artists work with Article 22 to create the simple bangle bracelets that are sold on their website.  Profits go first to the Laotian artists and their families, then to development projects: access to electricity, education funds, etc.

Check them out here. (Bonus: Article 22 also has some beautiful scarves and handbags for sale!)
