At Jana Reinhardt we like to put the planet first, so for every piece of jewellery sold, we’ll plant a tree with Ecologi. This means that when you buy something from us, we’re taking steps to offset the carbon created when we make your jewellery and ship it to you.Making our business greener is a priority for us because the climate emergency has never been more urgent. 2014 – 2021 were the world’s hottest years on record. The level of carbon dioxide and potent greenhouse gas in the atmosphere is higher than ever before, trapping heat and driving global warming. Sea levels are rising, glaciers are melting, and cloud forests are dying. Wildlife species are becoming endangered or extinct at an alarming rate. The sheer scale of climate change can feel overwhelming, but we feel it’s important to start taking positive action - however small those steps may seem in the face of such a huge issue. Every tree planted by Ecologi helps to reduce carbon pollution. Trees absorb carbon dioxide through photosynthesis and produce oxygen. The more trees we have, the more greenhouse gas they can absorb from our atmosphere. Reforesting is also crucial to protect and restore wildlife habitats and prevent more animal and plant species from being lost forever. There’s A LOT of work to be done globally to reduce the amount of pollution ending up in our atmosphere in the first place. We can’t change this overnight, but there are lots of little things we can do as individuals. Offsetting our own carbon emissions is a good place to start. Ecologi isn’t just about offsetting carbon, their work goes so much further. They fund climate projects across the globe, creating employment for local people in Chile, India, Thailand, Brazil, and many other places. They have established sustainable energy power plants across the globe and much, much more. You can find out more about Ecologi’s work below. We have only just started, but like trees, big things come from small beginnings. With your help we can make a difference.
