With Earth being our only opportunity to sustaining life (at least until we can colonize Mars), we must all do everything we can to help out. Here at Dubin’s Fine Jewelry, we have been doing our part to reduce our impact on the planet. For starters, we have been steadily increasing our sourcing of eco-friendly recycled precious metals. This in turn, reduces our demand for raw, new metal purchasing. Consequently, this cuts back on the need for mining thus reducing our carbon footprint.
Big Shoes to Fill
Everyone leaves a carbon footprint. It is defined as "the amount of carbon dioxide and other carbon compounds emitted due to the consumption of fossil fuels by a particular person, group, etc". To help offset our footprint, we decided to support and donate Terrapass.com. Our donation helps fund numerous projects that reduce emissions such as investments in renewable energy, landfill gas capture, water restoration, and more. You can offset your carbon footprint for a lot less than you think. Check out the link here to calculate yours and donate today.
Adding to our desire to be better, we strive to increase our responsibly & ethically sourced gemstones. These would be small and large scale miners that pay fair wages, practice clean and regulated mining techniques, and more. We are currently working alongside our network of miners and manufacturers to ensure we are doing our part to make this a reality.
Made in the USA
We support local metal-smiths, master jewelers, engravers, and watch technicians. By employing these talented craftspeople, they in turn are able to support our community. And with over half of all of our jewelry manufactured in the USA, we are also supporting local communities and families throughout the country.
