Two years after forming Bamboo Jewelry, the company decided if they couldn't cut their carbon footprint to zero, they would offset it by buying carbon credits making Bamboo Jewelry the world's first carbon neutral jewelry company. They have incorporated compact fluorescent bulbs and eliminated air-conditioning, instead turning to fans to keep everyone cool and comfortable. It doesn't stop there. The self-sustaining and fast growing Bamboo wood is the basis for their jewelry boxes. They also incorporated paper tape and use non-toxic, bio-degradable plastic for shrink wrapping. Even the paper printed cards within the box uses recycled paper, from a duplex printer. They can print 100,000 pages generating only five pounds of waste verses 157 pounds of typical waste from a regular laser printer. Future eco-friendly goals include purchasing a new company car - a hybrid Aptera that will get 300 mpg - and remodeling their facility so it runs on solar-power.
Each piece of jewelry's design celebrates a small part of nature, art and science. Almost all the silver used as the base of their jewelry repurposed or recycled, and they are striving for 100% recycled. Using finely braided wire to create each cloisonne color cell, they can do multicolored blending which results in their three-dimensional contours and realistic shading, hallmarks of their splendid craftsmanship. After the original artwork is complete, the sample pieces are carefully packed and mailed to China so artisans there can reproduce them.
