Improving Our Sustainability

·

Here at W&M, we believe that it's important to be as environmentally friendly a possible. During the last couple of years, we've taken many steps to reduce our environmental impact, and we are continuously working to improve.

Each piece of jewellery is handmade in our East London workshop, so you can be sure you are buying a product that has been made with care, whilst supporting independent British design. We only use FSC certified birch wood and have now introduced recycled acrylic into our jewellery range. The mother of pearl we use is sourced from licensed fisheries and is a by-product of the seafood industry.  

Our staff love what they do and we believe this is reflected in the quality of our jewellery. We have a relaxed, fun working environment and everyone is paid above the London Living Wage. We never hire unpaid interns.

We want you to enjoy wearing your Wolf & Moon jewellery for as long as possible, and therefore we are proud to say that we will repair your jewellery free of charge, for as long as you own it. We believe in investing in good products and keeping them for many years, rather than supporting fast fashion.

In our workshop we've made several changes to reduce our environmental impact. For example we have switched to:

- brown paper tape
- brown packing paper
- re-usable cork blocks with sandpaper sheets
- bamboo kitchen towel
- biodegradable latex gloves
- cotton buds made from wood
 
Thanks to First Mile, 0% of our waste goes to landfill. We recycle as much as possible, but anything that cannot be recycled is made into road surfaces!
 
We are proud to say all our packaging is recyclable, except for the stickers we use to seal your order. We have consciously made the decision to move away from plastic mailers, bubblewrap and any form of plastic wrapping. Some of our supplies get delivered to us in bubblewrap, which we save & re-use.
 

Future plans

In a couple of months time, we are moving to Florentia Clothing Village, which gives us the chance to choose our own green, sustainable gas & electricity supplier.
 
Every quarter our team get together to have a green meeting, where we discuss things we can do to improve as a business and reduce our waste.
