What is sustainable jewelry?
Everyone loves pretty accessories, but few people actually know how harmful jewelry production is to the environment. The metal mining process strips the surface of the soil and soaks it with toxic chemicals that contaminate soil and groundwater causing erosion, sinkholes, infertility, and terrible loss of biodiversity. What is more, metal mining process emits arsenic and lead which results in poisoning. Add toxic dyes, chemical disposal and plastic packaging to this mix, and you will get contamination of epidemic proportions. Whereas, sustainable jewelry makers use recycled metals cutting the carbon footprint and pollution more than in half. Cork products are another great example of how to use biodegradable, natural, non-toxic material to create stunning accessories.

About the material
In Portugal cork products are extremely popular. It is in this country that cork oak trees have the ideal conditions to develop. Removing bark from these trees is absolutely harmless. Moreover, it extends the life of the oaks. The bark then has to be stored outdoors for 6-12 months. After that it is boiled to make it more elastic, and the bark is ready for manufacturing.
