Eco-resin jewelry is Belart’s newest line. We began to partner with the creators of eco-resin jewelry in 2015. The artisans are from the central mountainous Andean Region in Colombia.
The resin we use in entirely eco-friendly and non-toxic. We believe that there is no better chemist than our Mother Nature. Our eco-resin jewelry collections are handmade and created from bio-based resins, co-products of waste products. This means that the resins are made from upcycled or recycled materials that have been discarded. One example is pine bark that is stripped from pine trees when they are made into lumber.
In using eco-resins, we have replaced petroleum-based carbon with renewable, plant-based carbon. These materials do not compete with food sources or displace food-based agriculture. Instead of using conventional synthetic and toxic-petroleum based resins, Belart believes in “green chemistry” which requires less energy to create and produces less harmful byproducts, thus reducing our carbon footprint.
