While some waste is inherent in e-commerce, we're aiming to get as close to zero waste as possible. Keeping old treasures on the fierce streets of fashion rather than mountainous landfills surely helps! But packaging matters too.
Our jewelry boxes are made in America with recycled paper. We ship in cardboard boxes (no plastic envelopes), packed with recycled bubble wrap and/or renewable padding. The boxes, tissue, and tape from your shipments can go straight into the paper recycling bin when you've done all you can with them!
