Although our business is small by many standards, at Kernowcraft we feel it is important to do our bit to help our environment and our community both locally and on a wider scale.
So here is a little background information on what we are trying to achieve in the background of our business, where our products come from and what we are doing to ensure we source the best products for you.
At Kernowcraft we are conscious of the reducing waste and reuse and recycle as much as we can. All paper, card, plastic bottles and glass are recycled, we have also recently sourced a company who will recycle our clear plastic packaging, meaning that we now recycle almost everything and only need to put a small bag of rubbish out every 2-3 weeks! You can help by reusing the padded envelope your order arrives in if you need to return and item to us, or using it to post a gifts to friends or family.
All our diamonds are conflict free and have been purchased from trusted suppliers from legitimate sources not involved in funding conflict and in compliance with United Nations resolution. Both grades of diamond that we stock, are either bought labelled by our supplier as 'conflict free' or our supplier guarantees that these diamonds are conflict free, based on personal knowledge and written guarantees provided by the supplier of these diamonds.
At Kernowcraft we share your concerns around ethically produced products and we do our utmost to ensure that the products we supply come from trusted and ethical suppliers. We have long standing relationships with most of our suppliers and have received assurances that they treat their workers fairly - providing a safe workplace, access to healthcare and a fair wage. For firms we are just starting to work with we will ask that they provide proof by sending us photographs of their work site. In addition we do a search on any new firm to see if there is a record of work abuse complaints filed against them. If we know a firm embraces any unsavory practices, we refuse to work with them.
