It's not a greenwashed buzzword for us — sustainability is a guiding principle in everything we do at Aiden Jae. From the jewelry we craft to the packaging we use and how we ship, we strive not just to minimize our impact on the planet, but to drive positive change through our actions.

Sustainability is a journey, and we are committed to transparency as we continue to grow and evolve. We'll be sure to update you along the way. For now, here's how we're currently taking action to reduce our environmental footprint and make a meaningful difference...

Our Packaging

We are committed to sustainability and providing you with a beautiful unboxing experience. Every shipment we make is carbon neutral (and then some) and we are part of the noissue Eco-Alliance community, so our packaging is as sustainable as it gets.

Our pouches are made by hand, in house, using natural cotton ribbon and organic wool felt. Our wool comes from an amazing supplier in Italy with a multitude of environmental and animal focused certifications. Wool felt is the perfect material for jewelry storage given its softness, durability, breathability, and water-resistance (and, unlike the microfiber commonly used in jewelry pouches, it is biodegradable).

Please refer to the chart below to learn what everything is made from and exactly how to handle it:

POUCHES & INSERTS Felt made from 90% organic wool and 10% polyester (GOTS certified, Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified, Responsible Wool Standard certified, mulesing-free), 100% cotton ribbon & thread No, but they are over 90% biodegradable, should they ever end up in the wild. No Yes!
SHIPPING LABELS FSC-certified thermal paper, non-toxic adhesive Yes! Yes! No
SHIPPING BOXES FSC-certified kraft with up to 60% recycled fiber content, printed with non-toxic soy-based ink Yes! Yes! As long as it stays in good condition
SHIPPING TAPE FSC-certified paper with 100% recycled fiber content, non-toxic water-activated adhesive, printed with non-toxic soy-based ink Yes! Yes! No
TISSUE PAPER FSC-certified paper with a minimum of 30% recycled fiber content, printed with non-toxic soy-based ink Yes! Yes! As long as it stays in good condition
STICKERS FSC-certified, acid-free, lignin & sulfur-free paper, printed with non-toxic soy-based ink, non-toxic adhesive Yes! Yes! You can try?
COASTERS Sustainably farmed pulp board, printed with non-toxic vegetable-based ink Yes! Yes! Yes!
PENDANT STRINGS 100% natural hemp cord Yes! No

This would require some creativity, but go for it!


We take great pride in our packaging and the packing of our jewelry, with the intention that every order is gift-worthy as-is, to yourself or others.  While we do not provide gift boxes or wrapping paper per se, our pouches are substantial enough to be wrapped by reusing our tissue paper, should you wish to do so. Our packing slips don't include prices. We would be happy to include a gift message for you – just leave us a note at checkout.

Unless otherwise indicated at checkout, jewelry pieces will be consolidated whenever possible to avoid excess packaging. Please keep this in mind if you are purchasing gifts for more than one recipient within the same order and be sure to request separate pouches for each item, if needed.
