Being GREEN is important for all businesses and charities alike. Not only does it show that you are mindful of an issue that the world is focused on, but it can actually save money which certainly helps in a tough economy.
The team at Charity Charms brainstormed to think of ways that we could be green in all of our operations. I thought I would share some of the things we have done to perhaps give you ideas for YOUR organization.


We make our pewter charms out of recycled, lead free pewter and our sterling theme charms are made from recycled sterling. We offer a recycling program to end users for the signature oval hatboxes that they receive their charms and jewelry in. We also came up with fun ideas to reuse the boxes. Our favorites: As a Barbie’s hatbox, poke holes in the lid and make a house for ants, and of course re-gifting. We are also finding that many of our clients are seeking companies that DO provide recycled products and a new niche of business is developing, especially with environmental organizations.


We separate our trash into recycle bins, reuse paper and plastic bags and tissue when possible, try to limit excessive printing and reuse the blank side of printed materials for notes and scrap, and stopped buying bottled water name a few.

And our last application for GREEN… providing a 25% online commission program for our charity partners so they earn GREEN from us year round! Click here for more information.
