Curlicue NZ's current packaging: Back at the end of 2017, after quite a lot of thinking and research, I started using a new gift box to package and protect my Curlicue NZ jewellery.
It was made from a cardboard base and a food-grade PVC clear lid. I had believed all parts of the box and packaging were fully recyclable (even the re-purposed bubble wrap insert which could be recycled in soft plastics), so I called it my Eco Gift Box.
Reduce, Reuse, Repurpose My "R3 Collection" is the second of two collections launching next Tuesday (8th September).
For some time, I had been thinking about how I could produce some jewellery by recycling or repurposing some sort of material. The material had to be one that I had easy access to, and also one that I had the tools to create something new from. But I don’t have the tools (or know-how) for woodwork, nor glass (yet!)
Are you up for the challenge? Choosing a sustainable and plastic-free lifestyle is a choice only you can make. However, it is one that can be broken down into small, easy and everyday steps, that after a while, become habits. While a world free from plastic will not fix all our climate and environmental problems, it is something that we - as individuals can collectively do, and have an impact on.
Due to the UK customs law changes, I can no longer sell to the UK from this website. However you can still purchase items through my Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/nz/shop/CurlicueNZ Dismiss
