This lovely traditional mala bracelet is created by a Balinese Brahman who methodically strings and ties the finest, wild-harvested rudraksha seeds. Mala bracelets are the perfect way to remind us to slow down for a moment and practice positive affirmations while on the move. Recite your affirmations upon this bracelet or simply use it to balance the mind, body and spirit. We use rudraksha seeds exclusively harvested on the island of Java. These seeds are each as unique as their wearer, and every facet or mukhi upon the seed represents the strengths that it has to offer. These mystical seeds promote healing, seal in positive energies and act as a protection circle while traveling through everyday life. Due to its protective nature, this mala bracelet is perfect for anyone on the move. Allow rudraksha to help you restore, affirm and rebalance :)
You will plant 4 trees with this Bracelet!

Locations: Indonesia, Madagascar, Mozambique & Kenya
Indonesia: Made up of over 17,000 islands, Indonesia is one of the most biodiverse regions on the planet. These islands are home to 12% of the world’s mammals, 16% of the world’s reptiles and amphibians, 17% of the world’s birds and 25% of global fish populations. Among these 17,000 islands, there are 135 threatened mammal species, including the endangered Sumatran Tiger, Orangutans, the Javan Rhinoceros and Sumatran Elephants.
An estimated 40 million rural dwelling Indonesians rely heavily on the biodiversity of their environment for subsistence needs. Traditional fishermen rely on the wetland ecosystems all around the islands, including mangroves, coral reefs and sea grass for their livelihood. In the last 3 decades, Indonesia has lost over 40% of its mangrove forests, affecting not only the environment and the species that rely on them but also the communities that depend on this ecosystem for survival.
Treevotion and our partner Eden Reforestation Projects is working with local villagers on Biak Island to restore, replant, and protect these unique and vital forest systems.
Madagascar: Madagascar is more than just an island from an animated movie. It’s a nation with over 200,000 species of plants and animals that don’t exist anywhere else in the world. But more than 90% of Madagascar’s original forests have been destroyed, displacing entire animal species and taking away the Malagasy’s ability to farm and live on the land. Entire mangrove estuaries are gone, leaving the bare earth to wash away into the sea.
This project launched in 2007 by restoring ecologically devastated mangrove estuaries in the northwest of the country. Mangrove forests are essential ecosystems whose dense roots serve as an anchor for the soil and coastline preventing erosion and creating a barrier between harsh ocean systems and land. What began as primarily mangrove restoration and reforestation in 2007 grew to include a variety of native dry deciduous species in 2012. This will include two National Park systems, which aim to reforest and revive natural habitat for endangered and endemic animal species.
Mozambique: Mozambique is located on the eastern coast of Africa with 68% of its population living in rural parts of the country. This Eastern African country is home to 20 globally threatened bird species, and over 200 endemic mammal species. With over 45% of the population living beneath the poverty line, the population relies heavily on its natural resources and forests for survival.
Historically home to vast mangrove estuaries and forests, Mozambique’s mangroves have been largely decimated and destroyed. Treevotion and our planting partner Eden Reforestation Projects is working with local communities and villagers to restore, replant and protect these precious forest systems.
Kenya: Kenya is an incredibly beautiful place from the creativity of the people to its diversity of its landscapes and wildlife. From the highlands to the coast, Kenya has an incredible diversity of forest types that have long-supported communities and wildlife. The cultural and ecological heritage of Kenya’s forests is vibrant and unique, but the management of them in recent decades has been unsustainable.
Eden’s work around the world aims to alleviate poverty and restore socio-ecological systems through intensive reforestation work in a variety of forest habitats. From empowering women to sequestering carbon, the impact of the work is multifaceted. The need and enthusiasm for reforestation in Kenya is great. From the highlands to the coast, Kenya has an incredible diversity of forest types that have long-supported communities and wildlife. The cultural and ecological heritage of Kenya’s forests is vibrant and unique, but the management of them in recent decades has been unsustainable. Join us as we are working towards launching this work in The Great Rift Valley and the Northern Coast in Kenya!
I live it because it remainds me that even though I can’t help physically I can help somehow. Thank you for the positive energy and peaceful vibe
Love my bracelet
I have been wearing it every day since I received it in the mail. The beads are a little smaller than I would like but I love the over all authenticity and quality. I'm excited to help Plant more trees and receive more bracelets.
In rudraksha seeds, the smaller the higher quality that´s why we use organic seeds from Indonesia ;)
All the bracelets Treevotion sells are very well-made and beautiful! I love the little pendants on them!
