Sastaa Celebrates Six Years Offering Coloured Gemstones in a CarbonFree® Environment

Written by  Linda

Rare gemstones and beautiful jewelry have long captured the admiration of cultures around the world, but as is often the case, the industries behind highly-prized items such as gems and jewels require energy-intensive and environmentally damaging mining and manufacturing processes.  “Rare Earth Element” mining involves an expensive and protracted process to “find and prove” the source location, develop a mine construction and operation plan, obtain funding, then pursue the permitting for the mine, which will typically require a positive environmental impact study including post-operation mine closure and environmental restoration.

While not able to solve the entire mining industry’s emissions challenges, CarbonFree® Business Partner Sastaa made a commitment six years ago to take responsibility for its own environment impact by neutralizing its operational emissions.  Sastaa is a Dutch import and wholesale business specializing in rubies, sapphires and emeralds. For the past six years, Sastaa as a company and owner Dan Thu Nguyen as a private individual have mitigated annual operational carbon emissions from office energy consumption and business-related travel by supporting Carbonfund.org’s global reforestation projects. 

“A carbon-free commitment is a crucial part of the total commitment to an ethical and healthy life," states Dan Thu.  Sastaa’s example of forward-thinking leadership and assumption of responsibility is characteristic of the long-term CarbonFree® Business Partners we will be featuring this year.  If your business has not taken steps to institute a meaningful sustainability program that includes carbon emissions mitigation, take a look at our CarbonFree® Business Partnership program for 2013 – a simple and affordable way to help fight the negative impacts of climate change and hasten the transition to a ZeroCarbon™ world.

Some costumers feel a little uneasy about Spironolactone ordering anything online. If you are of these people, Diflucan Side Effects rest assured that ordering online is just the same as ordering from a physical pharmacy. The Generic Lexapro only difference that you will experience is that you do not get to actually see us. The Albuterol Nebulizer services, however, are just the same. The products are also just as reliable and genuine. That is something that you can hold onto.
