Sustainability & Responsible Sourcing

Overview of packaging sustainability values

 

Eco Friendly Packaging & Our Sustainability Commitment

At Rock + Realm we are fully committed to using sustainable packaging wherever possible and will continue to find ways to keep improving this whilst ensuring your purchases arrive safely.

For example we use a variety of box and package sizes to ensure that we use the smallest possible reducing the carbon footprint of the delivery as much as possible.

All new packaging used is biodegradable or recyclable and where possible made from recycled sources too.

Recycled materials

Biodegradable materials 

  • Tissue Paper
  • Business Cards
  • Stickers
  • Jewellery boxes
  • Gift Boxes
  • Cotton Gift bags
  • Parcel Filling
  • Candle Jars
  • Packing tape
  • Boxes
  • Crystal information & thank you cards
  • Wax Melt wrappers
  • Incense boxes

 

Where this is not the case, i.e. bubble wrap or filler beans, these are reused from suppliers. We ask that you please also reuse or freecycle this material rather than send it to landfill.

We're are currently reviewing carbon offsetting and supporting reforesting charities to increase our positive impact. We'll keep you posted when this comes to fruition later in 2022.

If you have any suggestions, then we'd love to hear from you at hello@rockandrealm.com.

 Rock + Realm Ethical product sourcing values

 

Responsible Sourcing

We are committed to sourcing our products with fairness to people and the planet a top priority whilst ensuring we bring you high quality unique pieces. To achieve this, we have taken the time to get to know a limited number of suppliers who we trust and maintain strict quality control processes.

When sourcing crystals and minerals our main suppliers are based in the UK, South America, India and Europe. They are family run businesses with direct connections to miners and the local communities.  They all share our values to respect both the Earth and their employees, minimising environmental disruption and ensuring fair pay and safe working conditions.

We also collaborate with a number of other small businesses who share our values to be able to stock some beautiful hand crafted home decor and spiritual products.

Our crystal infused candles, room sprays and wax melts are created and hand poured in Essex, UK by the wonderful Janine of Omm & Co. Janine puts mental wellbeing and sustainability at the heart of her business, including a recycling initiative for your empty candle jars.

Our beautiful Stormy ceramics are designed and hand thrown in Norwich, Norfolk by the very talented Nathalie Hammond of By.Noo Ceramics.

Our Tarot and Oracle Cards are created by the wonderful Alicia of The Embroidered Forest. Every card is based upon a hand-stitched embroidered art work and the entire pack takes up to a year of dedicated work to create. A real labour of love, which infuses each deck with such power and love.
