Catori Life Jewelry is made in the USA using ethically sourced and recycled materials. We work hard to source the most sustainable and ethical materials we can and we are continuously looking to better our business and material sourcing from the jewelry itself to the packaging we ship in. In our creation and sourcing process we consider the whole production line and everyone involved from start to finish.
Being an ethical business we work to consider all aspects of our company from manufacturing and production to our deeply valued employees. We believe in transparency. Our goal in being part of the slow fashion movement is not to "get by", but to set new standards and raise the bar for the way businesses are run and the fairness and abundance to everyone involved. We hope to always provide generous wages to our employees, because we value the work they do. Minimum wage here in New Mexico is still an appalling $7.50 an hour. Living wage is currently $15.70. Our starting wage at Catori Life is $20 an hour.
We strive to use as much sustainable, recycled and eco friendly materials as possible. Our packing and mailers are made with recycled and eco friendly materials. Any plastic baggies used are biodegradable or compostable.
CAUSES WE SUPPORT
We work with various grassroots organizations for the betterment of our world on as many levels as we can. We hope that as we grow our donations can make a very significant impact in the overall healing of the environment and in society.

The sea is my first love and we are currently working with our friends at PNW Protectors to protect and restore the Salish Sea in the Pacific Northwestern region of the United States. In this beautiful sea lives a special pod of Resident Orcas, the SRKW, who are on the brink of extinction due to lack of Salmon. The PNW Protectors are working tirelessly to save these Orcas, and restore the food chain and the entire eco system by ensuring protection of the Chinook Salmon. A portion of each sale goes to support this work. Learn More
