Sustainability & Materials
We have a shared responsibility to our beautiful Earth to keep it clean and to coexist with all of nature. Sophia Faye Jewelry is striving to be as sustainable as possible in all facets, and we will continue to be as eco-friendly as possible, here's how:
Recycled Metals: Our metals are sourced from a refiner who uses 100% recycled silver and gold! That means that metal from other sources like old jewelry, silverware, or gold scraps are refined and then used to make a fresh piece of jewelry. This helps cut back on the amount of new material that is being used from mines- mining can be detrimental to the environment as well as local populations. Our findings and chain come from suppliers who also use recycled metals.
Padded Mailers: We recently made the switch from plastic padded mailers to 100% recycled paper padded mailers. They are biodegradable and compostable.
Jewelry Boxes: Our chocolate jewelry boxes are made of 100% recycled materials, on average 80% of that is post-consumer. Inside there is non-tarnishing ultra white synthetic cotton filler which is also 100% recycled.
Cotton Drawstring Bags: Our cotton jewelry bags are made of cotton grown and manufactured right here in the United States.
If you decide not to keep any of our packaging please be sure to either recycle or compost all parts to keep as much out of landfills as possible. Together let’s work toward minimizing our footprint on the environment, and showing the Mother Earth a little TLC.
