We constantly strive to find ways to be more eco-friendly. It's an ongoing process for us; we scrutinise all our suppliers, look closely at where our materials are sourced and choose fairtrade whenever possible.
Another step we've just taken is to join Ecologi, an organisation doing vital work to help us all contribute positively to the climate crisis.
Ecologi's work involves two main areas - Tree Planting and Carbon Reduction.
Now, you may not know this but I friggin’ LOVE trees so I’m very excited by this. Tree planting is one of the best ways we can make an impact in the climate crisis and stop temperatures rising above 1.5C. They are also crucial to preventing ecological collapse.
Ecologi’s tree planting partner The Eden Reforestation Projects plant millions of trees around the world each month.
Ecologi invests our money into projects that remove more greenhouse gasses than our own carbon footprint puts in. Each month they fund a variety of carbon reduction projects that are certified at the very highest level by Gold Standard and equivalent.
Here are details of projects Ecologi have supported so far.
JHW and Ecologi
From now on, for every £100 of jewellery sold in my online shop, a tree will be planted.
We heard about Ecologi from our friend and fellow jeweller Hannah Bedford, turns out it's easy to join and really makes sense for all businesses, whether you're a jeweller or not. If you sign up via this referral link we'll both get 30 trees planted as a thank you for joining, there's really nothing to lose.
You don’t have to be a business to join in - or even buy any jewellery.
If you'd like to to contribute to our forest directly that would also be great, you can do so via the 'Gift more impact' button on our Ecologi profile page.
Or if you like the idea of gifting a loved one a climate positive present Ecologi has some fantastic options (including a mini woodland!) for all budgets here.
We’re really excited to be part of Ecologi’s vital work, and knowing that as well as making jewellery for our dear customers, we are also doing our bit for the planet.
