What does sustainability mean in running shoes?

It means that the shoes are made of primarily recycled waste and utilize an eco-friendly manufacturing process. Sustainable running shoes must also contribute to environmental conservation and minimiize toxic waste.

Can jewelry be recycled?

Most components of jewelry are entirely recyclable. It is especially true for fine jewelry. Metals such as gold, silver, and platinum can be recycled repeatedly and do not lose their quality. Precious gemstones and diamonds don't degrade, either. You can use them as many times as you want, and they will last without losing quality.
