In commemoration of the National Love to Flora and Fauna Day and the National Heroic Day, the Bali Province invited us to plant and release birds at the Margarana Camp Ground in Bali. During the ceremony, John Hardy was honored with a certificate for the company's participation in the Bali Clean and Green program. We also planted 2,000 bamboo seedlings; proud to say we are Greener Every Day!

From using 100% recycled silver to planting over 800,000 bamboos, we're proud to say we are Greener Every Day!
Here at John Hardy, we canâ€™t express enough how much we admire Bamboo! This reputable plant is known as Mother Natureâ€™s gift to humankind for its impressive ability to heal our natural environment. It is a rapidly-growing perennial grass with a complex root system so it prevents soil erosion and filters salt from the brackish water while it sequesters carbon dioxide to help improve air quality.
Our signature Bamboo collection represents our core values of core values of being true to our legacy of sustainable luxury through design, artisanship, passion and respect. Through our "Wear Bamboo, Plant Bamboo" initiative, a portion of proceeds from the purchase of each piece from the Bamboo collection is used to plant bamboo seedlings on the island of Bali. To date, about 800,000 bamboos have been planted! It truly is a never-ending process that we believe is part of our responsibility to be "Greener Every Day."

We are proud to let you know that we commenced the use of our anti-tarnish envelope for shipping jewelry. Made from 100% recycled paper wrapping with recycled padding inside, the envelope is printed with soy ink and is re-usable. Not only does the packaging significantly reduce excess waste, but it also cuts down the use of jewelry cleaners, a product that is toxic for both the user and the environment, as the envelopeâ€™s material prevents the product from tarnishing.
