SUSTAINABILITY

JEWELLERY PACKAGING

Every pieces of Campfire & Compass Jewellery will be sent out in an eco-friendly cardboard jewellery box that has our unique logo embossed on it. These boxes are made from a FSC® Certified* blend of organic and recycled materials - even the glue is 100% eco friendly!

Whilst these boxes still contain a foam backing for your jewellery, eco-cardboard inserts are now available so I will be starting to phase out the use of foam as this is made from plastic.

If you order multiple pieces of jewellery I will aim to use as few jewellery boxes as possible, but if you need a separate box per item, please let me know in the message box during your check-out.

My business cards and even earring cards are all made from recycled cardboard too!

POSTAL PACKAGING

At the moment I use pre-used and pre-loved mailing bags for postage and sometimes reusable bubble wrap if required and I have some on hand. 

It's my opinion that reusing and recycling is more important than brand new swanky mailing bags that often get popped straight into the bin, but rest assured that your jewellery will still be beautifully packaged in our branded boxes.

I will be looking into a more sustainable way to post your jewellery in future, such as all-cardboard mailing boxes instead of jiffy bags that contain a bubble layer. If you have any suggestions then please hit me up and let me know!

 

ETHICAL SILVER

Where possible I use Ecosilver, which is made from 100% recycled silver from old jewellery, medical equipment, electrical equipment and giftware. It has exactly the same quality and characteristics as .925 sterling silver but with a much smaller carbon footprint! Neat huh?

 

ANIMAL THEMED JEWELLERY

You may have noticed that I make and sell jewellery such as fox teeth and jackdaw claws and wondered if any animals were harmed in the making of the jewellery and if any animal parts are actually in the jewellery or not? You'll be pleased and relieved to know that the answers are "no" and "no"!

I love to be in nature, and any animal parts used for my jewellery are remains that I've found in the wild, such as a fox skull found while walking down a woodland or countryside path or bird skulls washed up in the long grasses at the beach. I've always been a bit of a gruesome kid, collecting things like these for years, so it's nice to replicate them in silver and know that they are safe and durable to wear and will last a lifetime.

For anyone wondering if the bird claw, or fox tooth is inside the silver somewhere, you can relax now, it's not! A mould is taken of the tooth/claw, and in a long and technical process, silver is poured into the mould to make an exact replica with none of the gross stuff!

If you have a claw/tooth/bone or even a twig you got overly attached to on a walk, that you'd like making in to jewellery please contact me! I'd love to make your sentimental artefact into a gorgeous piece of jewellery for you!
