These days, with the climate we’re living in, making more of an effort to take care of our planet in as many ways as possible is crucial.

While it sometimes feels impossible to ensure that every single living essential you buy is sustainable, there are small things you can do to make more eco-conscious purchases.

For instance, you can start by buying more sustainable jewelry. Although we may not always realize it, the kind of jewelry we buy can have a big effect on the planet. One of the most eco-friendly types of jewelry is stainless steel.

If you’ve been wearing gold jewelry for most of your life but are ready to start purchasing more sustainable jewelry, you may want to consider switching over to the silver side and getting yourself some stainless steel jewelry.

Here are just a few reasons why stainless steel jewelry is friendlier to the environment!

It lasts longer

How many times have you purchased a cheap ring or pair of earrings and had them tarnish or change colors within a few weeks, forcing you to throw them away? One of the best parts about stainless steel jewelry is that it is extremely durable and long-lasting. 

When you keep your stainless steel jewelry clean and take good care of it, it can last a very long time, creating less of a demand to buy more jewelry. This creates less waste and saves you money in the process.

It’s recyclable
