This post is written in partnership with Nordgreen.
As a culture, I hope we are moving towards sustainability. Able to build, create, and design in a conscious way. To make and buy things while taking care of the world around us. While at the same time thinking of those who are going to come after us. That is why, more than ever, I am paying attention to brands that have a sustainable initiative.
One of the brands I have come to really appreciate is Nordgreen. With their carbon neutrality, sustainable packaging, and giving back initiatives – they are a watch company I am happy to support.
Combining Style and Sustainability
They plant thousands of trees to offset the emissions in their Copenhagen office and global shipments. Their packaging is FSC certified with materials coming from up-cycled plastic and responsibly managed forests. They have partnerships with relatable charitable programs around the globe through their Giving Back Program.
In addition, they have committed to donating a meal with every purchase to front line healthcare and rescue workers in partnership with Fuel Them LA.
You can be involved too; every purchase comes with a serial number you can use to decide on a charity (a portion of your purchase will go to that charity) that represents a cause close to your heart: Water for Good, Pratham UK, or Cool Earth.
Moreover, Nordgreen creates elegantly designed watches! Timeless pieces that uphold the Nordic and Danish tradition of style and sustainability. If you are looking for a Father’s Day or Graduation present, or a new accessory to add to your wardrobe, I highly recommend them.
The Philosopher Watch
I love their collection of refined and minimalist women’s and men’s watches. For my husband, who appreciates minimalist designs (and watches), I chose the Philosopher watch as the perfect Father’s Day Gift. The watch has a rose gold case with a navy blue leather strap (a great spring and summer look). This watch is SO stunning…and looks good on my wrist too. Thank goodness my hubby has no problem sharing!
“The Philosopher is designed to celebrate our ability to think differently, learn from the past, act now, and create a better future. The asymmetric second hand that appears to continuously slice through time, is designed to remind of exactly this. The watch is acting as an instrument of time.The conical shaped case has a wider base than face, creating a sharp two piece dial that draws our eye to the center of the timepiece, to the now! The elevated watch case, clean brushed look, and tugging lugs provide the finishing touches to the watches unique design.”
Take a Closer Look at Nordgreen’s Spring Collection
Another watch I loved was the Pioneer, with a more robust design and clean dial giving it a strong minimalist look.
“The new Pioneer style is Nordgreen’s take on a Chronograph, celebrating the Danish tradition of Science for Humanity, which aims to create positive change for humankind, thus working towards a greener future. The minimalist, clean dial is synonymous with the sustainable environment that we strive to live in. “
Nordgreen has a beautiful Spring Collection with an assortment of styles. For example, the Native is refined and modern, while the Infinity (women’s collection only) is pure simplicity and elegance. I truly have an appreciation for all of their designs.
You can further find a watch that compliments your style by customizing the dial colour, size, strap colour, and material to find the right look for you!
When it comes to commemorating special times in our life, whether for yourself or a loved one, a watch is a timeless gift. While used every day or on special occasions, Nordgreen watches make for a stylish accessory to any wardrobe. A watch holds so much symbolism for ourselves: a particular moment, being in the present, or excitement about the future ahead.
Nordgreen’s values about giving-back and sustainability are things I appreciate when choosing a brand. These values, along with a flawlessly designed product, make me happy to give them my support.
They commit to being a responsible brand that gives back globally and cares for the world around them. Their designs are more than aesthetically pleasing – they are symbols of their principles. I know the stunning timepiece I picked for my husband will be something he treasures for years to come.
