Lara Hanna Debs and Pascale Choueiri Saad have taken the ultimate emblem of Lebanon, the cedar tree, and incorporated it into the Green Cedar Lebanon jewellery range. This luxurious line also gives something back to the Lebanese countryside, which has been ravaged by forest fires in recent years. All profits from sales of Green Cedar Lebanon jewellery go direct to the Association for Forests, Development and Conservation (AFDC), a non-governmental organisation that funds reforestation efforts across Lebanon. The range is available from MEA’s in-flight duty-free shopping service.
