Great Green Idea: Mauri Pioppo

04/17/2007 at 03:00 PM ET

Recycling isn’t just for paper or cans — N.Y.C jewelry designer Mauri Pioppo used all recycled gold in her new Live Green collection. Not only did the environmentally committed jeweler not use any precious natural resources in the making of the line, but she is donating 30% of proceeds to the Natural Resources Defense Council. No wonder eco-activists Sheryl Crow and Laurie David have been sporting theirs in support! Get yours at for $365 (or $225 for sterling silver).

I really like this necklace and the cause. Unfortunately, after buying a new home, its not in my budget.

Can’t afford this right now either – but if I could, I’d go for the silver! Good cause.

Wow! 30% is a lot to give back…very generous of the designer. I think it’s a great price for fine jewelry. on
