At Wyse Design we take our community and environment, as well as their wellbeing and protection very seriously.
It is paramount to us personally and to our business culture that we do all that we can to ensure that the products we produce do not harm or damage the life of another. As crystals are overwhelmingly an undisclosed by product from large mineral and natural resource mining sites, it is extremely difficult to monitor and track the exact location that our crystals are sourced from. Crystals of our calibre are not the primary product of the mining industry, there just isn’t enough money in them to warrant the large cost of operation. They are a secondary product that is often discarded.
It is these abandoned piles that can attract poor families to fossick for gems among the rubble; just as some families would pick over tip sites, as a source of income to be able to support themselves.This is a truth we want to acknowledge so that we are as open and honest as we can be about the effect of our crystals, and in fact all natural resources, have on the world as a whole.
Two thirds of everything we take from the earth is wasted (national geographic). It is for this reason that we have gone to great effort to make a quality product that will be cherished and appreciated.In so doing we are paying homage to this amazing planet we call home and valuing the work and effort of people who are doing what they can to survive. Please know that we take great effort in cleansing and resetting the intention of each crystal, but don’t let that diminish your appreciation of the journey that each small piece has taken to get to you.
The best way for us to celebrate and thank the planet for sharing this piece of its beauty is to cherish its gift. But at Wyse design we also want to do that little bit extra. That is why we ask you to choose a location in the world where you would like us to organise for a tree to be planted.
