What exactly should you be doing
to be a “sustainable” jeweler?
with Jenna White
Founder: Responsible Revolution LLC

Intro: With all the terminology floating around (responsible, ethical, sustainable, fairtrade, etc.) the
quest to be a sustainable jeweler can feel daunting, if not impossible.

What You’ll Learn: Jenna will help de-mystify the jargon and provide practical advice for you to:
1) communicate your sustainability practices to your customers and employees
2) avoid costly mistakes
3) answer tough questions from customers
4) discern differences between marketing/PR claims and true impact
5) identify the next steps you can take to move forward on your journey.

Her advice will focus on practical things that you can do with no financial investment, or with a
minimal financial investment.

What She’ll Learn: Jenna’s mission is to support everyone in the jewelry industry to make progress
towards transparent and traceable supply chains. This session will have plenty of time for Q&A,
discussion, and networking. Jenna wants to hear directly from you! What are your challenges? What
resources do you wish were available?
