WHAT IS RECYCLED SILVER?
Silver mining is an industrial activity that remains very polluting, even if today we control the preservation of natural environments and the use of chemicals. Greenhouse gas emissions from silver mining remain a problem for the planet. Recent studies show that using recycled silver reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 66% compared to silver mined from the ground.
To obtain recycled silver, used jewelry is melted down, refined and purified through a waste treatment process and then transformed into new silver in the form of granules.
Thus, recycled silver has the same durability and quality as earth-mined silver.
As far as possible, we favor upcycling by renovating your old jewelry to give it a second life.
A low-cost repair service is offered on the site.
DESIREE SCHMIDT PARIS, COMMITTED BRAND
The products used in the workshop can be dangerous for the environment, but fortunately there are some more environmentally friendly alternatives.
For example, the pickling solution - which cleans metals after soldering - that we use in the workshop is made up of alum powder or a white vinegar/salt mixture, which very effectively replaces pickled acid.
In addition, we favor recycling for packaging and postal items. The packages are carefully prepared from recycled and/or upcycled envelopes, cardboard, foam, bubble wrap in order to promote zero waste. The cushioning sheets come from paper recovered from old packaging.
The jewelry boxes and cases are made from recycled cardboard and agricultural waste (corn) and raffia, and can be placed in the composter without any problem.
Every small gesture counts to preserve our planet.
Désirée Schmidt Paris is proud to align itself ever more with an ecological and social conscience.
