Bracelets that grow into trees review

I love these beautiful bracelets. Future Oxygen has created these amazing bracelets that contain seeds within them and can be planted after use.


The decorative bead is brained onto a hemp yarn corn and the bracelet is easily removed with their knot and loop design. You can adjust the size of the bracelet to fit your wrist by adding additional knots ..

Inside of the beads are tree seeds. My specific bracelet will grow a White Pine Tree. The bead is made from biodegradable pulps and clay and is coated with a water resistant barrier (non toxic). The packaging itself is 100% plantable, it's biodegradable, and recyclable

You should not wear the bracelet while swimming [or in a hot tub] or during showers. It's okay to get the bracelet wet, just not soaked.

The instructions on how to plant your item are inside of the packaging, making for less paper waste. 


To plant the bracelet, cut off the ends (where you clasp the bracelet), soak the entire piece in water for an entire day (24 hours) and then plant outside or start in a pot.
Keep the dirt moist until the tree sprouts.
If you discard your packaging, you can find planting instructions online

About Future Oxygen
Future Oxygen started the Smile Exchange program this month. For every pendant sold on our website, Future Oxygen will donate a bracelet to a child in need. We are currently working with Ele's place offering grief counseling and support for children that have lost an immediate family member. And we are also working with Operation Military Kids that will include a bracelet in their backpacks to give to children with a parent being deployed overseas.

Our bracelets have many fun and memorable applications. Wear a bracelet as you lose weight, search for a job, expecting a child, fighting cancer, etc. Plant the piece to celebrate success, the memory of a loved one, your birthday, meeting a fundraising goal, etc.

You can purchase these bracelets, as well as necklaces and many more items from Future Oxygen.



  I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

  1. That is so cool! How fun would it be to put those in Easter baskets, or give out for Halloween (I can totally picture girls wearing them all winter and being super excited to plant them in the spring)
