All my jewellery is carefully packaged in FSC certified tissue paper printed with soy-based ink and is then presented in a white branded pillow box made from paper.
I post orders in cardboard boxes and if any bubble wrap is used at all it is wrap I have received and am reusing.
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 saved and used for my 'limited edition' collection (one off designs) and I only make up to 5 of each earrings style at any time, meaning I will never have tons of dead stock.
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.
