Sustainability

We’re on a Mission

As Ayou Jewelry continues to grow, we have an increasing responsibility to commit additional resources toward protecting our planet. We have long held the conviction that we can be both a great business and a great corporate citizen. In fact, we believe we cannot be one without the other.

While we are just starting out and still far from where we want to be, we are very happy to start implementing measures for sustainability!

For every one of our amazing items that ships, you can now offset the carbon footprint with a positive environmental impact. 

What does it mean to offset emissions?

It means that for any carbon emissions released into our atmosphere as a result of shipping items from Ayou Jewelry, we invest in projects that reduce carbon emissions by the same amount. It’s almost like we’re giving the planet an IOU, then immediately paying it back.

How does it work?

Each time someone checks the carbon neutral box during checkout, we will automatically purchase verified emissions reductions, more commonly known as “offsets” through our friends at EcoCart (ecocart.io/about). These purchases support environmental projects, like wind and solar farms that create clean energy, or protecting trees that would otherwise be cut down so that they can continue to absorb carbon from the air. On top of it, these projects are doing some extra good like protecting animals or supporting underserved communities.

Here is how to add the carbon neutral option to your order:

What's next?

This is just the beginning in our journey of making a positive impact environmentally. We will continue to make announcements to inform you of the latest efforts we are undertaking in protecting our planet.
