ENVIRONMENT

Energy

The workshop is powered by green energy provider ‘Good Energy’ – they guarantee 100% renewable energy –  no coal, no nuclear, no fracking. ‘Good Energy’ is the best green energy supplier according to the 2016 Ethical Consumer report.

Printing & Packaging

Your order will be dispatched in an unbranded external box, external packaging is made from renewable and/or recycled, biodegradable materials. Your Jewellery will be packed in a recycled card branded Jesse Belle box with a leather pouch. All efforts are taken to use recycled, renewable and biodegradable packaging materials. Plastic lamination as well uv varnishes are avoided as they are not recyclable.

Materials

Jesse is currently seeking to offer Fairtrade products. All gemstones are selected from small companies within the UK who have close relations to suppliers and so are more able to ethically source their materials.

All diamonds are bought from suppliers actively taking part in the Kimbery process certification scheme. The Kimberley Process Certification Scheme imposes extensive requirements on its members to enable them to certify shipments of rough diamonds as ‘conflict-free’ and prevent conflict diamonds from entering the legitimate trade.

Workshop chemicals are kept to an absolute minimum and where alternatives are available they are used.
