AD – This is a paid advertorial and featured gifted products. All thoughts are my own.

I love my jewelry. In case you didn’t know, it’s a big passion of mine. I’ve never been really into fashion or handbags. And I don’t spend a great deal of time or money on make-up. But jewelry? Boy, oh boy. Since becoming much more conscious of my shopping habits at the start of 2020, I’m also becoming more conscious of the jewelry and accessories brands that I use, promote and shop with. So I’m incredibly excited to team up with Nordgreen for today’s post!

I’m a big lover of watches and Nordgreen are a brand that have popped up on my radar a number of times. I’ve always stared longingly at their beautiful products and chic, minimal designs which are always right up my street. And I’m mega excited to be working with them today for 3 very important reasons:

  1. Their products are stylish and elegant
  2. They’ve taken sustainable and economical steps, such as using sustainable packaging and responsible manufacturing
  3. They’re INCREDIBLE at giving back to the environment and those in need

I’m constantly wonder HOW I can do more and WHAT I can do to give back to my community or charities that are close to my heart. I don’t think you need to be a global brand in order to make a different to someone’s life. But the Giving Back Program that Nordgreen have implemented has SERIOUSLY inspired me. And I know it will for you, too.

Nordgreen Giving Back Program

One of the main things that attracted me to Nordgreen was their Giving Back Program. During a year of so much tragedy and heart-break and with people losing so much all over the world, it’s not hard to get behind a brand who not only likes to give back into the world but who also considered it agiven, when the brand was established.

The amazing thing about the Giving Back Program is that you, the buyer, can get involved too. In a number of ways!

One Tree Planted: In order to help with the devastating deforestation and wildfires that have engulfed Australia in the recent years, for every watch sold with the code ONETREEPLANETED, Nordgreen donates 5 trees towards the reforestation efforts in Australia.

According to One Tree Planted, “This year’s fire season has brought about unprecedented destruction as wildfires have spread across every Australian state, burning up nearly 6 million hectares (15 million acres) of bush as of January 2020.”

ThanksGive: ThanksGive are a South Korean NGO who help donate books to children in the Uleung-do Island who lack facilities and educational materials. All you do is use code THANKSGIVE at the checkout and Nordgreen will donate a book to the organization.

Social Bite: When using code SOCIALBITE at the checkout, Nordgreen will and Social Bite will be giving a meal to someone in need living in the UK.

Nordgreen’s vision for better living is also mirrored by the 3 NGO’s they continuously partner with for their Giving Back Program, Water for Good, Pratham UK, and Cool Earth, which cover sectors such as heath, environment and education.

The initative for the Giving Back Program and all the amazing work that Nordgreen do to help those in need stems from Danish core values. Denmark have free education, healthcare, and live in a sustainable, innovative society. So for that reason, it’s important to give back in those vital areas of life to those who aren’t as fortunate and struggle.

“If you want to be a true Danish design company, a Danish company focusing on Danish values, you have to be responsible and sustainable because that’s what the country’s about.” – Vasilij Brandt, 2020

And what about the products?

If you aren’t convinced already, let’s look at the actual products. Because that’s probably what you’re here for right? If you’re into chic, utterly stylish but blissfully minimal accessories, then you will absolutely love the collection of Nordgreen watches. They have various collections and ranges of watches for both Men and Women, including gift sets and extra straps that you can buy separately.

The Native Collection // Navy Dial Dove Grey Vegan Leather£150

I was offered the choice of one watch and one extra strap to feature within this post, so let’s start with the watch itself. Due to the current changes in my approach towards sustainable fashion and “doing my bit” so to speak, I opted for the Vegan leather strap. I had absolutely no qualms about this as leather doesn’t play a role in my life anyway.

For this particular watch, there are various variations of colours and metals you can choose. From the face, the strap and the metal. This simple but elegant watch was designed by Danish designer, Jakob Wagner and I think it’s utterly beautiful. I absolutely love the navy face that I chose, combined with the rose gold and the grey vegan leather. We all know how much I love my grey and rose gold!

Another neat feature is that you can choose the size of the face between 32mm, 36mm and 40mm. I went for the middle one as I tend to prefer bigger watches but not too big and this size was a perfect choice for me.

Navy Blue Vegan Leather Watch Strap, Rose Gold, 36mm£46

I love the element of the interchangable straps that Nordgreen offer. Again, I chose a Vegan Leather strap with rose gold buckle but in a navy blue, to match the watch face. I love that I now essentially have 2 different watches that I can mix and match depending on my outfit or occasion.

The watch and strap arrived in this gorgeous sturdy box which contains the same level of elegance and durability as the watches themselves. They really don’t leave out any details at Nordgreen.

  1. Oh I love the Give Back Program idea! More brands should implement such practices in their operations, there are so many people in need even in our own countries and since governments don’t care about them, the help must come from elsewhere. My brother actually planted 2 pine trees this year at our Summer house to offset his car emissions! So we’re completely onboard the tree-planting side of things 😉 xx

  2. That watch looks so stunning! I love that they give back, you are right with everything happening around the world and people everywhere suffering it is important to give back and help where they can. This would make a wonderful Christmas present. Thank you for sharing this review and the brand.
