Sustainability

Outrage Jewellers have long been committed to minimising the impact of our business on the environment. We'd like to give you a little more information how we support the environment.
Carbon Offsetting - We are part of a carbon offset scheme. The scheme allows us to calculate the emissions generated by each delivery using data such as the distance, weight and mode of transport involved in each delivery. We then offset these emissions by subscribing to a scheme which protects 500000 hectares of the Amazon Rainforest against illegal deforestation. During the conservation efforts, 25 endangered animal species are also protected. The conservation efforts are remotely monitored using satellite imagery amongst other tools.

Packaging - We have been packaging our jewellery in cardboard boxes and using paper gift bags for many years. We have also been using paper mailing bags, which do not have the plastic bubble wrap inserts. The inserts in the boxes remain foam, however we are researching sustainable alternatives to this.
Boxes
Energy - Our office is powered by an electricity provider which only generates renewable energy.
Stock and  Recycling - Our jewellery is mainly created from silver and semi precious gemstones. All these precious resources are mined from within the Earth, but all can be recycled. During our 32 year history we have always recycled any silver scrap created, any item not passing quality control, and lemel, which is the dust and small pieces of silver which are shaved off items of jewellery during the manufacturing and polishing processes.
The gemstones can also been upcycled as they can be taken out of an existing piece of jewellery and placed in a new setting.
