OUR ETHICAL STATEMENT
Wherever possible, we are always seeking alternatives that are more environmentally friendly, ethical and sustainable.
All jewellery is made from 100% recycled Ecosilver.
100% recycled silver not always possible for larger scale work, but all the silver bullion we buy is around 90% recycled. Every last scrap of silver is saved and reused or recycled; all filings and offcuts, and even the floor sweepings. This has always has been the case in the precious metal trade. Resources are precious, and mining is damaging.
Jewellery packaging is stylish and luxurious, made from 99% recycled cardboard. Wrapping is 100% plastic free. The only issue we have been unable to resolve to date is the foam inserts in our jewellery boxes. We continue to seek a sustainable alternative.
Workshop electricity is 100% renewable.
Using current stocks and resources in the workshop (for example re-using plastic bags, but not buying new ones) and if new items are needed always opting for biodegradable/recycled/low impact options. Always actively seeking to reduce, re-use, recycle.
Many small actions make a big difference, for example, using the Ecosia search engine plants trees worldwide as you search, instead of filling pockets in Silicon valley.
Always seeking these small changes that add up; we drink a lot of tea in the workshop, we use PG Tips teabags, which are the only mainstream teabags which are completely compostable and have no plastic. Also Seep biodegradable washing up sponge scourers, instead of ones made from virgin plastic, that will be around forever.
We make pieces that will last many, many years, even many lifetimes. That is one of the beauties of silver. It is a noble element, and has always been revered for its everlasting qualities.
