Carbon Neutral Pearls
Pearl growing oysters are ancient creatures that are very sensitive to their environment. Pearl farmers therefore go to great lengths to keep the water around their oysters clean by preventing pollution, cyanide fishing and dynamite fishing in their local areas.
This creates rare areas of incredible natural beauty and biodiversity around pearl farms.
Whilst pearl farming is wonderful for the environment, it’s under threat from climate change. We therefore promote this important message by doing our bit to help, offsetting the carbon footprint of our jewellery and packaging through the funding of green energy projects.
In partnership with the CarbonNeutral Company we recently helped support the development of a new hydroelectric facility in South Eastern China, providing cheap, clean energy to the developing areas near to where our Freshwater pearls are grown.
Here’s more information on our current offsetting programme.
