Being environmentally conscious is one of our core values and as such we hold ourselves accountable.
Hello Zephyr is dedicated to an organic growth. We are a small family business working to create durable and quality products, produced ethically and sustainably at our home studio in the French Alps. Our suppliers partners are, like us, independent small companies.
To reduce our environmental footprint we have zero waste of polymer clay. We make an upscale use of this material, creating small amounts of jewelry and reusing all the clay scraps. Our pieces are made to be treasured and have a long life if cared properly.
Our packing is plastic free. The jewelry boxes are made of 99% recycled boxboard meeting FSC standards. Instead of a foam they come with carded wool to organically protect your jewelry.
Our business and post cards are made out from recycled t-shirts off-cuts and our stickers and tissues are acid free, printed with soy ink - also FSC Certified.
Most of our shipping boxes for large orders are re-used card boxes we collect from local shops. For small orders we use ocean friendly, biodegradable, and 100% recyclable postal boxes. You can look for the FSC and PEFC certification printed on your box. They are all sealed with water activated tape. Our invoices are printed on seed paper. Rather then throw it away, plant and water it. Watch the seeds bloom into beautiful flowers!
