With all the attention the climate crisis has garnered over the past year, accessories that support eco-friendly causes will be in demand around Earth Day, April 22.

Pono offers Save the Planet bangles (shown left) made of natural horn with lacquered gold print. The sleek, stylish bangles are available in four colors and retail for $200 each. Ten percent of all proceeds go to the Climate Project.

Annatarian's Peace, Love and Earth jewelry line, which includes charms and pendants on necklaces and bracelets, is made of pure recycled sterling silver. Ideal for dress-down days, the pieces range from $30 to around $300.

Mauri Pioppo designed necklaces in its Live Green collection from recycled metals. These tsavorite-accented pieces are priced up to $820, and the Natural Resources Defense Council receives 30 percent of all proceeds.

Environmental advocates can go green from head to toe by pairing these accessories with clothing made from renewable or sustainable fabrics at retailer Banana Republic.

Earth Day may be an excellent opportunity to boost retail sales, and there's no need to worry about overstocking because fashion experts say green is the new black.
