Feel-good hair clips for tots

We are totally into the idea of going green whenever possible, so we did a little happy dance when we discovered Can-it! hair clips. The flower-shaped barrettes are made from recycled soda cans and crafted by—get this—12-year-old Calabasas native, Juliette Connell. The entrepreneur was inspired to make jewelry after a summer in Utah, where she learned the new craft. Once back home, her friends flipped for her creation and Can-it! was born. Connell, who is partnered with 11-year-old Bella Applegate, uses a hole punch tool to make the petals, which come out completely smooth to the touch. Current favorites are made from cans like Tab, Coca-Cola, and RockStar Energy Drink and can be purchased at Pumpkinheads in Brentwood ($9 for a clip, $18 for earrings). The sixth-grader is trying to save the world one recycled hair clip at a time, and is therefore dedicating a percentage of Can-it!’s proceeds to the Environmental Children’s Organization.
