SUSTAINABILITY

Taking the discarded and making them Precious...

At Neon Joyride, we hope to nurture sustainable and ethical practice every step of the way. We believe the best form of sustainability stems from a less is more approach; buying only what we need and love, and ensuring those things are well taken care of. 

The concept behind our jewelry begins and ends with our love and respect for the ocean & our planet, so naturally we prioritize environmental care, being kind and fair to others, and supporting local trade.

That being said, we are always learning and finding better ways to do things. While we can't be perfect, we do try to make the best choices we can along the way. Below you can find more of where we are at and what we are working on to reduce our impact on the planet and to ensure our products are made with as much love as possible.

 

  • Our jewelry is handcrafted and designed to last. We love that every piece is also recyclable too, so it will not end up in a landfill.

  • The silver that we use in our jewelry is trace-able. We use both certified recycled and ethically mined silver.

  • When designing, we recycle our metal scraps (silver & gold) whenever possible and even previously made jewelry samples to ensure nothing goes to waste.

  • We organize beach cleanups & empower local families to help keep our ocean & coastlines clean.

  • We recycle and upcycle ocean plastics. 

  • We are family run and we keep it small, with made to order, limited edition production & one of a kind pieces.

  • We use minimal natural, recycled, reusable packaging to minimize our footprint.

  • Our soft cotton jewelry pouches are made from upcycled clothing by women at our local cooperative & printed locally using water based inks.

  • Our organic cotton gift bags are sewn and printed locally in Portugal and are OEKO-TEX certified, which guarantees they are free from harmful substances.

  • Our stationery & jewelry cards are tree-free, made out of upcycled cotton from discarded t-shirt cuttings from the fashion industry.

  • Our mailers are plastic-free & biodegradable, made from 100% recycled post-consumer waste paperboard, and printed with eco-friendly vegetable/water based inks so they can be 100% recycled.

  • We work with ethical, like-minded partners who put people and planet at the forefront of their production. 

  • We do it local whenever possible.
