Jewellery with purpose
My vision when starting a jewellery business was to have a business that continuously gives back. I believe by coming together and working collaboratively we can ignite a revolution through taking lots of small actions. Together our efforts combine can generate change.
That is why I've proudly partnered with i=Change. This means that when you make a purchase on my website $1 of profits is donated to charity and you (the customer) get to choose which charity it goes to. When you checkout you will be asked you to choose from one of the following three charities...
Restore the land
$50 = plants enough trees and shrubs to store 1 tonne of carbon dioxide
Since European settlement, over 90 million hectares of land across Australia has been cleared, threatening species and the productivity of farmlands. Climate change will only exacerbate the impact with reduced rainfall, increased temperatures, droughts and more frequent extreme weather events.
Greening Australia aims to restore 330,000 hectares of native trees across Australia by 2030. Drawing on the expert input of Traditional Owners, scientists and local land managers, we will plant 500 million trees and shrubs to store carbon, create quality habitat for native wildlife, and restore degraded farmland. These 500 million trees and shrubs will absorb over 1.3 million tonnes of carbon dioxide per year by 2030, and reduce atmospheric carbon pollution.
This is one of the world’s largest and most ambitious ecological restoration programs.
Clean the sea
$1 = removes 1.2kg of plastic and debris from the sea
Over 160 million tons of plastic is produced each year to create single-use disposable items and packaging.
With no established system to close the loop, this has led to over 70 years of accumulation of plastics in landfill (40%) and the environment (32%), with only 10% being recycled.
Plastics end up in waterways and oceans, breaking down into ever smaller pieces called micro-plastics, well known for entering the food chain through the water, air and food that we consume.
Seabin Smart Tech, similar to a rubbish bin X pool skimmer, removes floating plastics as small as 2mm, filtering 600,000L of water per day from oil and surface pollutants.
Protect a woman
$50 = provides a hot meal and a safe, comfortable place to stay for one night
During these times of economic challenges, Women's Community Shelters is experiencing a 25% increase in inquiries for safe accommodation for women and children, who are homeless or escaping domestic violence.
Existing services are at full capacity, with more than 50% of women seeking shelter turned away due to a lack of beds.
Across Australia, around 56,000 women are homeless each night, many with young children. Women unable to access shelters are left vulnerable, disconnected from community and support networks.
Women’s Community Shelters is dedicated to providing women and children with a safe place to stay and an opportunity to rebuild their lives.
