Updated: Biodegradable plastics & fashion

Behind the scenes at Emi Jewellery, we've been working pretty hard to reduce our impact on the plant with the work that we do. From today, we have added in the below new paragraph to our about us page online. Check it out:

Packaging materials
Around 90-95% of the plastics that we use in our packaging are biodegradable. So what does that mean? It means that a special additive is included during the production process meaning the plastic will biodegrade in 12-24 months in landfill. This harmless residue matter is then absorbed leaving behind no micro-plastics and more importantly, 0 trace that the plastic we used once existed in the first place. Our polybags, address labels & bubble wrap are all biodegradable.
We use recycled paper, paper sellotape & plain cardboard boxes which can be recycled to ship our jewellery

What does this mean as a company? 

Well, it means just that - we've almost eliminated the non-recyclable plastics from our business. Our postage bags, wallet docs & bubblewrap used to send our jewellery to our customers are all biodegradable.

Our paper is recycled. We use paper sellotape to close the packages and plain cardboard boxes which can be recycled to keep your new jewellery safe during transit.

Xander is working hard on a solution to eliminate the last 5% of non-recyclable plastics from our business which he is hoping to roll out by the end of 2018 so watch this space!

Now there really is no excuse for guilt free shopping!!

Love, Emi. xXx
