We're over the moon to say that this month we reached an incredible goal that we've been working towards for years (seriously). Now 6/6 of our Responsible Jewelry Council certified factories craft with recycled gold plating.
What does this mean? 100% of our new sterling silver and gold vermeil pieces are now made from 100% recycled metals. With this in mind, let's see what else we've achieved and brush up on the sustainability goals we set ourselves on Earth Day 2022.
For four years running, we've partnered with environmental charity TreeSisters in ecosystems that need them the most. Other achievements of ours include using Kimberley Process certified diamonds in our Missoma Fine collection, and becoming members of the Responsible Jewelry Council.
This year we're dedicated to giving you an extra layer of transparency, bringing you up to speed when it comes to our factories and manufacturing processes.
Our Sustainability Goals
- Acing Our Base With Recycled Brass -/- Our focus for 2022 is to increase our recycled jewelry output with recycled brass. By introducing this alongside the recycled gold and silver we already manufacture with, we’ll be able to create gold plated pieces that are 100% recycled. We're working with their suppliers to find a source that supplies recycled brass they can certify.
- 100% Biodegradable Packaging From Suppliers -/- Our packaging to our customers is 100% recyclable, but the inbound jewelry currently comes in individual plastic poly-bags, which is industry standard. By 2023, we aim to only use 100% biodegradable poly-bags.
- RJC Code of Practice Certified -/- Right now, we're proud to be members of the Responsible Jewelry Council. By March 2023, we will be Code of Practice certified – the same level as our six factories.
Worldwide Carbon-Neutral Delivery & Returns
As of Earth Day 2021, we've partnered with climate tech platform Vaayu to calculate and offset the carbon from our deliveries and returns, the first jewelry brand to do so.
For each shipment we currently save 1.79 kg CO₂e – the equivalent of charging a smartphone 22 times. Through Norway-based climate solution platform CHOOOSE, we're supporting projects we care about to offset our carbon.
Dedicated to Better
We're passionately committed to pushing ourselves and our industry to build a better future. It's a long road, but we're already on our way.
