Eden Reforestation Projects Partnership
In January 2020 I began my partnership with the Eden Reforestation Projects. For every pair of earrings sold on my website and Etsy shop I donate a percentage of the money to Eden, who will plant a tree which helps to restore healthy forests around the world and reduce poverty.
Sustainability and ethics are close to my heart. By planting trees around the world in Ethiopia, Madagascar, Nepal, Haiti, Indonesia and Mozambique we are:
- Restoring animal habitats
- Helping to restore local rainfall patterns
- Improving water purity
- Increasing soil quality by preventing flooding and soil erosion
In addition to the above environmental benefits, Eden hires local villagers to plant the trees, providing them with a decent income so that they can provide for their families.
I am so excited to welcome Eden as a partner!
All my jewellery is carefully packaged in FSC certified tissue paper printed with soy-based ink and is then presented in either a white branded box made from paper or a card made from 100% recycled cotton. These cards are made from t-shirt offcuts and would have otherwise ended up in landfill.
I post orders in cardboard boxes and if any bubble wrap is used at all it is wrap I have received and am reusing. I do not use any plastic packaging for my earrings at all.
In my studio I store the earrings in glassine paper bags.
Fast fashion is second only to oil as the world's largest polluter. (1) By shopping with small brands and independent designers you are automatically cutting down on the mass production of fashion by huge companies.
All jewellery is handmade by me and my promise is to always ensure as little waste as possible. Any offcuts of clay are used for the 'Surprise Pebble Studs' and I aim everyday to be as environmentally conscious as possible during the making and packing process of my jewellery.
As I grow and learn I will continue to do my absolute best to stay as positive for the environment as I possibly can. We've only got one world, it's up to us to look after it.
