Baleen's Sustainability Practices
We believe it’s our responsibility to our planet to be as low-impact and sustainable as possible. We’ve worked hard and are extremely proud of the results of our efforts.
99% Recycled Metal Content
Nearly all of the metals that are used to make our jewelry come from a recycled source. Whether it be a stud earring, a jump-ring on a necklace or the plating that is on a bracelet, we’ve worked to source recycled and responsible materials.
Our production studio in Seattle is a zero-waste facility. We take great effort and pride in making sure that materials that are normally considered unusable by manufacturers find their way into hands of those who will use them. Whether it be recycling our scrap metals, sending small bits of gold that we have gathered for years to be re-processed or donating components to local schools who teach jewelry classes.
We print our tags on a recycled paper from a mill that is hydro and wind powered since 1922. They’ve saved an estimated 1,000,000 barrels of fossil fuels and 70,000 tons of carbon dioxide to date and have been family-owned in the United States for 6 generations.
Our Gift Boxes are also manufactured in the United States using recycled paper.
