Eco-Friendly Jewellery – How it Can Help You Breathe Easier

Eco-Friendly Jewellery – How it Can Help You Breathe Easier

If you’re interested in learning how to use eco-friendly jewellery then this article will show you how easy it can be to do so. Eco-friendly jewellery is all about promoting environmentally responsible product use. Many of us have already heard about how our choices in products can either harm or help the environment. It’s really important to consider how our everyday items are impacting the world around us now and in the future. If you’re not sure exactly what this means then let me fill you in. Most of today’s consumer goods are created using dangerous chemicals, releasing massive amounts of pollution into our ecosystems and literally poisoning our water supplies.

Ingredients of eco-friendly jewellery

So how can we make sure that the items we choose to wear and use today are not harming our planet? First you need to understand where the ingredients in eco-friendly jewellery come from. This is normally found on the packaging. The majority of the time the ‘ethanol’ (such as Ethanol from Sugar cane) and ‘aramylic acid’ (such as Amyl Alcohol) in most bottle designs are used to create a white coating on the outside of the bottle which allows for the dye to coat the inside of the bottle, creating the desired colour. However some bottle designs may still contain small amounts of metals such as zinc, tin and copper. These metal ingredients are then mixed with Ethanol and Alkaline in order to create the desired shade of Ethical Jewelry.

Fair trade materials

With Ethical Jewellery it’s really important to look at the way that the materials are harvested from the land. Some countries have a lot of land that has been used for years to produce jewellery which is now exported around the world. This has had a negative impact on local wildlife and the local economy which is why many people are turning to buying Ethical Jewellery from companies who source their own fair trade materials. As well as being made from sustainable fair trade parts and recycled materials, these types of jewellery brands often promote a number of other environmental campaigns such as planting trees or recycling anything that can be reused.

Last longer items

The other side of Ethical Jewellery is its green status. In essence this means that these types of jewellers aim to create as little waste as possible and to create items that will last longer without using any more resources than necessary. By using recyclable materials, it is possible to create less waste and make high quality jewellery that lasts for a long time to come. This is also helping to increase awareness of sustainability and the need for everyone to do their bit to help reduce carbon footprints. A large part of Ethical Jewellery sales come from buying green gemstones from companies who use sustainable harvesting methods.

Carus Jewellery – Antique jewellery brand

Carus Jewellery is a brand that focuses on antique and ethical jewellery with an emphasis on conflict-free trade. It is run by women who own the company and it aims to create high quality jewellery using ethically sourced and recyclable materials. Many of its raw materials come from conflict-free Africa. At the same time, most of the gemstones used in the making of its jewellery come from conflict-free Palau islands. Some of the most prominent adornments in the brand’s ranges come from conflict-free sources, including the Conflict-Free Diamond’ which has been said to be the finest diamond ever found in the world.
