SUSTAINABLE & ETHICAL JEWELLERY

 

When starting PASCALE x JAMES we wanted to ensure that we maintained our ethics and didn’t let profit come ahead of our core beliefs: the importance of the environment; fairness to workers; and of course quality. From climate change and air pollution to excess and over-consumption, it has been easy for us all to be blind to the effects that our actions have on nature and the wider environment. It is therefore more important than ever for companies and brands to take responsibility for every aspect of their business, enabling consumers to have a choice when it comes to supporting clean practices. Here at PASCALE x JAMES we believe we have a duty to be sustainable and conscientious when it comes to the running of each and every element of our business. We have therefore committed to minimise our impact on the environment as well as ensuring that all of our products and packaging are produced in a fair and ethical manner. 
 
CARBON NEUTRAL
As a race we have created an environmental crisis in the form of climate change and are careering towards an irreversible tipping point. We have an obligation to not only reduce but to eliminate our greenhouse gas emission. Whilst this is not yet fully possible for our business we are taking every step we possibly can to minimise our carbon footprint. We use a renewable energy supplier to supply our gas and electric; we minimise unnecessary travel and try to use green methods of transport wherever possible; and we constantly re-evaluate our suppliers and their eco-credentials. Unfortunately, we are not yet able to eliminate our footprint altogether and have therefore made the decision to pay a voluntary carbon tax. This goes to further advance the use of renewables in the hope that one day soon we will all be able to be entirely free from fossil fuels. Whilst our efforts go a small way towards making us carbon neutral, it certainly does not absolve us from making further efforts to eliminate our emissions or the emissions of companies we work with.
 
RECYCLED STERLING SILVER
The environmental and social costs of mining silver can be significant and includes massive energy usage, arsenic emissions, cyanide and mercury poisoning, child labour and human rights abuses, as well as vast landscape damage.
With this in mind we use silver recycled from scrap jewellery, medical equipment and electronics in an attempt to minimise our impact in this destructive practice. We will also only ever use solid precious metals, as we believe that each and every piece should be of the very highest standard.
 
RECYCLED AND RECYCLABLE PACKAGING
Our boxes, business cards and postcards are produced using 100% recycled and FSC certified materials and printed with water-based inks. Using recycled materials stops waste going to landfill as well as saving vast amounts of water and a surprisingly large amount of oil (recycling 1 tonne of cardboard saves us around 9 cubic metres of landfill space, 2600 litres of water, and 175 litres of oil). All of these items are also 100% recyclable.
