Sustainability

We try to bear sustainability in mind as much as possible when making decisions for Bahari Blu. There is already so much consumption that happens in the world, so it is important to us that we tread as lightly as possible, providing pieces of jewellery that will be cherished and worn for decades to come. 

 

The natural world is where we find inspiration for our designs, and it is therefore our chosen mission to help protect and restore the world’s precious, and quickly diminishing wild places. Every three months 10% of profits will be donated to Heal Rewilding, as it is essential for all life on earth that the complex ecosystems that we ourselves exist in remain healthy, interlinked, and complete. 

 

We aren’t perfect yet, however we are always looking for ways to improve and would be open to any suggestions and feedback!

What we do well

  • The main components in our jewellery designs are made from waste products which have been up-cycled and given new life.

  • We use 100% recycled packaging, eco-fibre box fillers, and chlorine free recycled craft paper.

  • We only make unique, small batch collections - so there is never any wasted stock.

  • We do not design our pieces following the latest fashion trends. Each piece is designed to be timeless, wearable in all seasons. 

  • We offer a free repairs service (as long as the items have been cared for respectfully). Please email info@bahariblu if you would like to organise a repair. 

  • So far we have donated over £600 to environmental charities protecting our world’s wild places.

Ways we aim to improve

  • An aim for 2022 is to start regularly donating 10% of profits to environmental charities protecting the world’s wild places. 

  • As our up-cycled ceramic collection is handmade by artisans in Lamu, Kenya, we know that the air-miles are not great on these pieces. I try to manage the supply chain in order to only send small parcels with family members or friends already returning to the UK, however I aim to look into ways to offset these emissions in a sustainable way.

  • At the moment the main components of our designs are made from recycled materials, however I would like to slowly develop products that are 100% recycled. This will include sourcing recycled silver, which I have so far found in the UK but not in yet Kenya.
