Birch Artisan Studio is committed to making a difference. We use recycled materials such as silver and gold wherever possible and are always endeavouring to be better. It can be a daunting and difficult task sometimes, but every little bit helps; choosing zero waste, recycled or compostable products and saying no to plastics where possible. Our packaging is made from FSC certified, post-consumer products and is printed by a carbon neutral company local to British Columbia. We’re continuously looking at ways to reduce our carbon footprint and find sustainable and socially conscious alternatives to help make a positive global impact.
We became a member of 1% For The Planet in 2018, a nonprofit organization created in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia and Craig Matthews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, which is dedicated to protecting the health of our planet. With support of 6 core focus areas; climate, food, land, pollution, water and wildlife, we felt this organization best represented our values. We wanted to choose a program that was measurable in our commitment, so 1% of all your purchases is donated to support nonprofit organizations focused on a positive global impact in these areas.
