From wildfire, flooding, earthquake, super hot temperature to covid, all kinds of abnormal weather keep reminding us that the earth is overloaded. Even extreme methods have been used to punish human beings for excessive damage to the environment.There is an urgent need for everyone to take action to reduce environmental pollution now. 

Renfook Jewellery decided to use recycled silver material to make new jewellery step by step two years ago.

We actively promote and advocate this proposal to our suppliers too. Here is a bit information about recycled sterling silver. 

What is recycled sterling silver?

Recycled sterling silver is precious silver extracted from used metal products. Once the silver is separated from the other metals  mixed with, it is melted down and reused to make new silver products. 

Is recycled sterling silver as good quality as non recycled sterling silver?

It certainly is! No purity is lost in the process of extracting sterling silver from used sterling silver items. The clod of silver produced at the end of the process is still pure silver. 

Can recycling sterling silver help to save energy and greenhouse gas emissions?

Absolutely. When it comes to recycling metals, such processes can save a vast amount of energy and carbon emissions. During metal mining, an incredible amount of electricity and energy is used to extract metal ore, not to mention the ongoing smelting and processing operations which emit greenhouse gases. The Recycling Industries claims that recycling metal can cut harmful emissions that cause global warming by anywhere from 300 to 500 million tons. 

We promise it won’t affect the quality of the pieces but it will affect the world. Let’s do it together, the world will be better because of you.
