Ethically Sourcing Crystals in 4 Steps
The world of healing crystals is enormous and quite tricky to navigate. There are thousands of different minerals and they all go through various methods of production—both naturally and artificially. So identifying the right crystals and their origin is a challenge in itself. That’s why we’re heavily invested in getting the right information about each crystal before they hit our shelves. Finding general information on the products and their value is key while sourcing crystals ethically.
2. Finding and vetting suppliers
We're committed to the quality and safety of our crystals. That’s why we only work with suppliers that meet ethical sourcing practices as well as compliance with international standards. We make sure that they’re serious about the production ethics, quality, and safe working environment as much as we are. Besides, we also take things like certification, experience, and previous track record into consideration while vetting for suppliers.
3. Establishing trust with suppliers
Trust is the foundation of any healthy business relationship, and it's impossible to establish long-term success without a solid foundation. Here at Good Juu Juu, we take our time to get to know our suppliers well. This involves us getting a clear picture of the origin of the crystals, sourcing methods, and production process as a whole. All these aspects are a good reflection of a business and the people that run them.
4. Cost and pricing
The last step when sourcing ethically is that we try to get competitive rates for you. This involves buying in bulk and keeping our stocks stacked up for the future. Although the prices may sometimes vary from market rates, there are no compromises made on quality. We make sure that all our buyers get the right information and the best value for their hard-earned money.
