By shopping small and independent we can all help to make a difference, cutting down on mass production.
Claudia Made This jewellery is handmade by me and there is very little waste. My jewellery is made to order, so there will almost never be unused pieces.
Our boxes are made from Eco-friendly paper and are recyclable, although I suggest you store your earrings in them as they have anti-tarnish inserts to protect your jewellery.
Postal boxes are 100% recyclable and made from recycled card.
Jewellery is wrapped in either tissue paper, paper bags or Glassine bags, which are made from pure pine wood cellulose which is 100% recyclable. The Glassine bags are opaque, anti-static, chlorine and acid free and does not contain any chemical softeners.
I also try to use Paper stickers only and nearly all bubble wrap is reused.
