Show The Love For The Earth! You can feel good about your purchase from STL, knowing that your piece was made with the Earth in mind. To help minimize the environmental impact that irresponsible mining and refining practices can have on our planet, we exclusively use recycled sterling silver, brass and 14 karat gold in the manufacturing of our fine jewelry. We use fair-trade precious and semi-precious stones. Our diamonds are Kimberly Processed Certified and conflict-free. The gold plated pieces we produce are all nickel-free.
To confirm that all the gems we sell have been handled in accordance with Fair Trade Gems Protocols, our supplier maintains complete chain of custody documentation. They know how the gems were cut and polished, by whom and whether the gem was enhanced.
Our packaging and printed materials are all made in the USA. We use FSC-certified, recycled, post-consumer waste, chlorine-free paper for our packaging. Our mailers are made from recycled fibers and post-consumer content. Our workshop is made from all reclaimed wood and materials from a salvage yard. It is insulated with recycled blue jeans and has a living roof on it to help reduce global warming.
Our eco consciousness is even deeper seeded than this! For the last five years, founder Jen Pleasants ran an eco-blog, SHOWTHELOVE.COM, and wrote a book called Bag Green Guilt, available on Amazon. We remain dedicated to helping educate others on how to tread more lightly on our Mother Earth.
Thank you to our green partners who help us run our business more eco-friendly: New Resource Bank for our banking, The Greener Printer for our printing, Nashville Wraps for packaging, Hoover & Strong for manufacturing, A Different Feather for web design, Canvas Dreams for our wind power website hosting.
