Direct Support for Conservation
Your purchases in our shop directly support conservation and animal welfare. Each month, we share a portion of sales with an organization or individual scientist working for the betterment of life on Earth through conservation biology, animal rescue/protection, and environmental justice. If there is a group or individual you'd us to consider, please let us know.
While some waste is inherent in e-commerce, we're aiming to get as low 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. And bubble wrap lasts forever, so if your package includes bubble, you can pay it forward by using it again.
