As a nature lover and all round decent human, sustainability is something that's really important to me within my small business and is something I am constantly trying to improve.
Jewellery Boxes: I use eco boxes made from FSC certifies cardboard and water-based glue. They are fully recyclable.
The foam inserts currently cannot be recycled but the made without the use of crude oil. Instead, they are made from Tall Oil, a by-product from paper production.
Business Cards: Printed uncoated paper. FSC certified. ECF bleached. Virgin Fibre. Fully Recyclable.
Outer Packaging: Orders are sent out in fully recyclable cardboard boxes with tissue paper and paper tape.
I never buy bubble wrap, bubble envelopes, packing peanuts or similar plastic packaging. If you ever receive an order from me containing packaging like this, it is definitely something I have reused and I encourage you to re-use it again.
Materials: My wooden jewellery is made using fast-growing more sustainable species of trees like Birch and Walnut. These types of woods are removed at their rate of growth, meaning the woodlands will retain their supply.
Plant a Tree:
Most of my jewellery is made from wood so it is important to me to play a role in preserving the planets trees, forests and woodlands. From June 2022 I have committed to planting a tree for every order through Ecologi.
