Post-Earth Day! 🌿

Hello there!

If you were unaware, Earth Day took place last weekend on April 22nd! A day our world has dedicated to raising awareness about the environment and doing our best to keep it clean. While it may seem like our society at large has contributed to the vast amounts of pollution from factories and oil production, they aren't the only establishment that has the potential to change our country's future.

YOU can make a difference, as small as it may be. While it may seem insignificant in the grand scheme of things, realize that this is exactly the way change is made. 

Being aware of the environment is a huge part of becoming a sustainable society and taking the time to appreciate it can make a difference in the way you think about going about your daily life. 

Some of the most beautiful locations I've visited have been outdoor gardens and beaches. They are pristine parts of nature that remind us that the bustling city life is not the only thing our world has to offer. In particular, Vancouver, Canada has some of the loveliest outdoors with vast greenery and gorgeous sculpted gardens and parks. Not only are the people nice, but the scenery is beautiful as well!

Hopefully this post will inspire you to take the extra effort to stop wasting unnecessary materials and failing to recycle what materials do get used. Take care of the environment & stay green!

P.S. If you looking to attend an environmentally friendly event near you, check out Eventbrite's nonprofit fundraising page! It's a great resource!

Accomplishment of the Year

Looking back into 2016, one of my greatest accomplishments would have to include being invited by the mayor to receive a proclamation from the city of Cupertino. 2016 has a been a rocky year, but that night certainly holds a lot of pride and happiness for me. I hope to have many more moments like this one and I look forward to making To Green and Beyond even better in 2017. Happy Holidays everyone!

Proclamation from the Mayor!!

A couple weeks ago, I had the honor of receiving the proclamation from the mayor. It was amazing to be recognized for all the hard work that has gone into To Green and Beyond, and none of it would have been possible without the endless support. When the mayor looks into your eyes and tells you you're doing a wonderful job, its a sense of validation that inspires you to do so much more. I can't wait to achieve the many more goals I have, and stay tuned for more!!

Contact me @ if you have any questions/ want to support the cause by purchasing earrings!

Featured in Makezine!!

An article featuring To Green and Beyond was published in, a website for makers around the world. I had the honor of being interviewed at the Maker Faire and then my words were published on the website yesterday. It's been amazing to see everyone's supportive comments and I can't wait to take my hobby and passion forward. 

A big thank you to everyone that has supported me and made this possible!!

Round 3: Maker Faire 2016

It's that time of the year again!! Maker Faire 2016 is just around the corner and I can't wait to have the opportunity to meet new people and try new things this year. As many of you know, Maker Faire is the biggest event we have attended and it's so exciting to be a part of the inspiring maker team that gets to display their own talents. This year, in addition to the paper bead earrings and jewelry, we have decided to incorporate paper lanterns into the collection. Some of our lanterns have stamped circles from various recycled paper that are displayed on the lantern in a fish scale pattern. Others have paper flowers attached to give them a more natural and whimsical look. I am definitely excited to talk about and share the lives of the underprivileged girls that we have sponsored as a community from the profits we have donated. Their education and daily lives have significantly improved and from it, they are happier individuals that get to see life in a whole new way. If you're interested in learning new things Maker Faire is definitely the place to be from May 20-22! Don't miss out on the amazing opportunities that can be found!

Gauri- SHWAS

Last year, we donated to SHWAS and provided tuition for an underprivileged girl named Gauri. She started the school year at a new school and is enjoying all that it has to offer. Thanks to everyone's support, another girl in this world is getting the opportunity to get an education.

This year, we have committed ourselves to providing tuition for another girl and any contribution made from you all would make a huge difference in her life.

Donate by purchasing our upcycled jewelry or our new item, the HOLIDAY LANTERN. Thanks!
