Help Concrete Geometric With The Nica Fund

Seeing the devoted work our friends are doing and participating in across the world and right outside our doors via Instagram has been really neat for us. One such gal we’re in love with is Krizia Flores, the designer and founder of Concrete Geometric in Los Angeles. You can’t but help love her gorg vases and plant pots that have been carefully hand-shaped.

Yesterday we landed on one of her posts we wanted to share with you. Flores, originally from Nicaragua is hosting a featured, discounted sale of one of our fave designs to donate all proceeds to the NICA Fund. NICA stands for Nicaragua Initiative for Community Advancement. Flores tells us that the program uses existing community strength to focus on building more sustainable communities for the future.

The cool part- when you purchase the planter, it enables a person in the community of Β El TransitoΒ to be employed for one month in NICA’s community development program. We’re psyched- cool, original artwork your plants will love living in while helping communities thrive on the local level.

    I love this planter and I love Nicaragua! I just came back from a visit to the country on Monday. It’s a country that needs a lot of help, but the people are amazing. Thanks for the heads up!
