Atelier Laibach's Commitment to Wildlife and the Environment

Laibach atelier not only strives to maintain a carbon and environmentally neutral footprint but also helps to repair the damage caused by misuse of the planet's resources.
You may have already read Kerstin Laibach's
principles which describe how every aspect of her jewellery follows a genuine path to eliminating all environmentally damaging processes ... and is also cruelty-free. In addition, Laibach atelier spends a considerable amount of time researching the surrounding regions from where we gather the small handful of surface stones each year, which Kerstin sets into some of her collections. Where there are organisations in the regions that actively help to conserve and restore the environment and protect wildlife, we select the most appropriate groups and award them a donation of 15% of the profits from each Laibach piece sold.
More information on UK and European recipients of Laibach donations can be found here:
The Environment and Wildlife of South West England
The Environment and Wildlife of Lake Constance (Baden-Württemberg) and the Rhine region

With Laibach pieces which do not contain stones, 15% of profits are still evenly distributed to relevant organisations. These donations are often awarded on an annual basis but occasionally within shorter periods.

We also donate to educational and re-training projects which help communties out of poverty and away from the dead-end vortex of artisanal mining.
The recipient of our donations based on this principle is Gorongosa National Park in Mozambique, Africa. Gorongosa is undoubtedly proving to be a project which is achieving better living standards for its surrounding communities while at the same time reversing environmental damage and wildlife loss. It does not engage in any extraction activity which is otherwise endemic in this area of Africa.
For more about our support for Gorangosa see here

On occasions, we may run donation promotions to help an individual organisation. These organisations can sometimes be animal rescue / welfare organisations. With pieces that include surface-gathered stones sold through such promotions, the 15% of sales profit is split between the participating organisation of which we are promoting and our usual selected organisations, but only those pieces which are sold via the related promotion code. Otherwise, all sales donations are awarded to our chosen organisations.
Please note that Laibach atelier never knowingly associates our business, our promotions or ourselves with any animal rights groups (or anyone connected to them) who condone the use of violence and unlawful behaviour to forward their cause. We only support law-abiding / well-initiated environmental and animal protection organisations with a proven track record for balanced, peaceful, nonviolent activity.

In kerstin Laibach's day to day work activities, the two main areas relevant to local gathering of surface stones are the southwest area of Germany and the south / southwest region of England. Please choose either of these two area links to find out more.

To see the current list of organisations who are benefiting from the sales of Kerstin Laibach pieces, please see our links page. (Opens new window.)

For customers who provide their own surface-gathered stones from other parts of the world for Kerstin to make a piece for them, we look into good-cause projects in the gathering area which would be most appropriate for receiving a 15% of profit donation. In some instances (such as customer gathered stones from impoverished countries) we award donations to humanitarian aid programs serving local community needs, which also improve local ecology and promote sustainable living. These may include projects such as environmentally responsible water channelling, renewable energy installation and education on environmentally and socially responsible productivity, including birth control.

If you would like Kerstin Laibach to make a piece from a stone you have gathered yourself please see here

If Laibach atelier takes any business trip which unavoidably generates transport carbon emissions we offset this by contributing to carbon offset projects.
We also include an optional Co2 offset contribution through which customers can choose to donate 50 cents (Euro) on to our delivery charge. We match this donation with an extra 50 cents - subsequently adding one Euro to our carbon offset fund which is awarded to tree planting projects designed to help counteract global warming.
