BeryGREENa: commitment to eco-friendly ethical practices

Sustainability and supporting other US businesses are top priorities for Laurie Lynn in the making of Beryllina jewelry.
Laurie Lynn's efforts to be green include:

  • using only recycled silver, gold, palladium and platinum
  • using only all natural, untreated gemstones and minerals mined in the USA
  • self-mining some of the minerals & gemstones used
  • using 100% recycled jewelry boxes made in the USA
  • packaging jewelry with 100% recycled tissue paper and 100% recycled crinkle filler, both made in the USA
  • using jewelry cards handcrafted locally with 100% recycled cardstock
  • having business cards made with 100% recycled cardstock, and encouraging folks to use their phone to photograph the card rather than take one with them
  • using recycled boxes and vintage upcycled display pieces for display at shows, instead of using imported plastic display pieces
  • handcrafting banners with cotton rather than purchasing printed vinyl banners
  • using low-energy LED lightbulbs to light the jewelry studio and display cases
  • recycling plastic, paper, and glass from the studio
  • collecting all metal scraps and dust from the jewelry fabrication process and sending them into the refiner to be turned into new, recycled, usable raw materials for jewelry making
