HOW WE CONSIDER OUR IMPACT
Our entire production ecosystem—including sourcing, manufacturing, and branding—aims to mitigate our impact on the environment, support and empower our partners, and give back to our communities. We know how our materials are sourced and processed, and the working conditions that they were made in.
TRACEABILITY IS EVERYTHING
To create true sustainability in fine jewellery we need to be able to trace the impact of our pieces from the origin of the materials all the way to their final destination: you.
Traceability and transparency are key to avoiding unintended negative impacts at any stage of the creation process and we are committed to the highest level of sustainability. Given the multiple hand-offs in the fine jewellery supply chain, traceability can be challenging but we’re taking the challenge to continuously establish frameworks and processes to improve the traceability of our materials across our supply chain. This level of accountability is the future of modern luxury and we are committed to driving this change.
To achieve this, we started with prioritizing suppliers who are certified by the Responsible Jewellery Council. The RJC provides the most comprehensive international framework for compliance and focuses on best practices around health and safety, human rights, fair labour, governance, and environmental protection. While these guidelines are core to our brand, they cannot always affirm full traceability from mine to market.
With that in mind, we are making significant investments to evaluate and develop material traceability frameworks and will continue to work with manufacturers who have the appropriate traceability processes and certifications in place.
Packaging & Fulfilment
Here at Megan Collins Jewellery we only uses items which can be easily recycled or home composted. We work with European based suppliers to reduce shipping emissions and we aim to keep our wrapping to a minimum, providing luxury and care without producing too many throw away items.
All of our packaging is made from recycled materials that are FSC approved.
FSC® stands for Forest Stewardship Council ® and is an international non-profit quality mark for wood and paper.
The FSC quality mark guarantees that the material used comes from FSC forestry, where no more trees are felled than the forest can reproduce. This also means that the flora and fauna in these forests are protected, the loggers are specially trained for the work, have good safety equipment and receive a fair wage.
We have an option to choose deliver worldwide with DHL GoGreen, a climate neutral shipping service.
We are a slow fashion brand. Our jewellery in handmade and designed to last for generations.
We provide green eco tips to encourage and educate you on how to keep your jewellery looking its best for years to come.
We are continually identifying new areas where we can be more sustainable and kinder to our planet. Here’s the goals we’re currently working towards:
Switching to a carbon neutral or greener shipping methods. We currently use Bpost which has some brilliant values but we want to go that one step further and reduce our emission even more.
Bring more skills in house and build a eco studio to work from.
Move towards using packaging that can give back to the Earth.
