Greening up Our Little Corner of the World

On the home stretch to Branded Trust CSR Management System….

Our favourite section was analysing and creating strategies to reduce our Environmental impact.
This was in fact a very easy practise of being much, much more mindful about our resource use.
Even some product re-design (more to come on that!).
Awareness, education and engagement are critical in the success of our intended program.
We put in place some very simple tools to help our staff assist us wherever they could, and we talk about it and report on it at team meetings now.
Feeling quite empowered to make a difference in our little corner of the world.

Its every businesses business to look at their carbon footprint.

2015 saw us revise the product design of our origin certificate to remove the plastic cover component.
This product is now fully recyclable, should it need to be.
This is a move that is a bit outside of the industry paradigm of plastic sleeves over certs, but one that we think is warranted and valuable.

Our printer for the last 10 years WORLDWIDE printing is at the leading edge of sustainable developments in the printing industry, and if you wish to more read about their commitment, and credentials you can find that here:

Not only that our printer is noCO2 certified!!

this is a small impact for a small business, but we are trying wherever possible in our product and merchandise design to reduce our call for plastics.
More news on our other re-designs coming up…

Just what does fluorescence mean to a diamond?
Thursday, 09 April 2015 12:28

Trust the GIA EDU to come up with this really  succinct answer:

Fluorescence is a very common characteristic of the production of the Argyle mine, infact looking for fluorescence was how the ore body was screened for diamonds initially.
