We from NECKLACY care about the environment. Shocking pictures like tons of plastic in the ocean and cutting down forests made us feeling sad. This is why we decided to do something against it.
On one hand there is the plastic. Our Smartphone Necklaces are also made out of plastic. This is one thing we can’t change so far. At first, we thought of giving our customers a cashback when they return the case and we can recycle it. To run a system like this, we would need thousands of different return spots or the customer would send it by post, where also CO2 would be generated. So, we decided not to do it like this. If you have a great idea, please feel free to get in touch with us.
Our result for less plastic is to use recycled materials. In 2019 we plan to launch a recycled case. So, stay tuned and follow us. Thanks for your support.
Something much easier for us in the beginning is to join a project to protect the cutting down of the rainforest. With ClimatePartner we found the perfect partner for this. ClimatePartner runs projects all over the world to produce less CO2. And so there is our project in Papua New Guinea. We help with every product sold the ClimatePartner project in Papua New Guinea. This country is one of the last with unique and untouched pieces of nature and owns the 3rd largest rainforest in the world.
The April Salumei Rainforest has been used for commercial logging. Three times the size of San Francisco is cut down every day. The native communities have a strong relation to their nature and try to protect their homes and future. To help these people keep the April Salumei the 3rd largest rainforest in the world, NECKLACY decided to support the native communities.
With our money spend on this project, we help to install solar lamps in schools, hospitals and households, we help to improve education opportunities like for sustainable agriculture and we help to protect the rainforest as a habitat for rare species.
Thank you very much for your support!
