Sustainability

 

The studio is committed to being environmentally conscious and to take steps toward sustainability and transparency. 

 

All Tamara Steinborn jewelry is proudly created in Ottawa/Montreal in a casting process that includes a portion of recycled metal. Metal can be recycled over and over without loss of quality and the studio collects and returns for North American refining all silver polishings, filings and scrap.

All chains are North American sourced. 

 

Tamara Steinborn is fairly made and all hands that cast, polish and assemble the jewellery are local.

 

Office paper is 100% recycled content.

All office paper, printer cartridges, electronics and light bulbs get recycled.

Studio cleaning products are non toxic and biodegradable. 

Everyone’s time is valuable. The studio does not hire “interns” – all work is done in-house with staff on payroll at above minimum wage. Photo shoot models are also paid a fair wage for their time.
