About Unearth

 

unearth | ʌnˈəːθ | verb

a) find (something) in the ground by digging

b) discover (something hidden, lost, or kept secret) by investigation or searching.

 

At Unearth Store we are constantly searching for designers and brands that approach their creative and production processes differently; with sustainability in mind. Once unearthed, we partner with them to bring you a unique selection of fashion accessories. 

Unearth Store is the go-to marketplace for design-led sustainable and ethical jewellery.

We only work with brands that share our vision for a sustainable approach to fashion. Brands that care about great design, fairer production processes and how their work impacts on people and the environment.

Brands featured on Unearth Store have a story to tell and a commitment to at least one of the three pillars of sustainability: social development, economic development and environmental protection. All the curated brands integrate sustainability values into their business practice.

Unearth Store aims to bring you a selection of unique jewellery and accessories characterised by a timeless yet contemporary style. We believe that sustainability and outstanding design can go hand in hand.

We are always searching for new designers and brands so we can keep adding unique and contemporary pieces that look fantastic and feel great. New pieces and brands are being introduced regularly but we don’t work seasonally.

Most of our collections are handcrafted and made to order; this helps the environment by avoiding wasted stock and moves the focus away from mass production and fast-fashion.

Natural elements play a key role in our jewellery. Our collections feature precious metals such as fair-mined or recycled gold and silver and recycled brass, natural resins, reclaimed wood, by-product cow horn and ceramics. Secondary materials such as wood or natural resins offer a unique alternative to traditional metals and have a lower environmental impact with origins that are easier to trace.

We are committed to this ongoing mission and regularly review all areas of our business to identify new ways of reducing our impact. Here some ways we are doing this:

We are committed to becoming carbon neutral. We review our logistics regularly to identify new ways of reducing our emissions. As we grow as a business, we aim to more accurately track our impact and offset it. So far, we have offset 10 tonnes of carbon dioxide supporting a Global Portfolio of Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) Projects.

We aim to minimise to a maximum our packaging waste. We choose packaging options that protect goods in transit and that are recycled and recyclable.

Most of our jewellery comes with a Unearth Store branded drawstring cotton bag to help keep your pieces safe. Our pouches are made from unbleached cotton and manufactured in a sustainable and ethically audited factory in Southern India. The manufacturer also takes part in a CO2 emissions offset scheme.

All our branded stationary is FSC certified and fully recyclable. Not only that, the printers we work with now offset all the CO² emissions associated with the manufacture and distribution of the paper they use. We ship all our orders on paper bags that are fully recyclable.

Please note some of our products arrive on the brand’s original packaging. A few of the products we have in stock at the moment are wrapped on small plastic bags to prevent tarnishing and damage. We are working with these brands to look at recyclable and plastic free alternatives. 

We choose suppliers and work with business that have a commitment to sustainability.

Brands featured on our website support at least one of the three pillars of sustainability: social development, economic development and environmental protection.

Our office is powered by renewable energy and we recycle wherever possible.

All our parcels are delivered by Royal Mail. We believe that by using the UK’s main postal service and courier company, we are keeping new vehicles off the road. We offer customers the option to offset emissions for their delivery.
