We will not carry endangered minerals and encourage others to not create demand by keeping them in the Earth. Our supplier specializes in ethical sourcing and being an educational resource and guide for consumers. Consumers have the purchasing power to demand change in the crystal extraction industry to ensure fair wages, the highest level of safety, and responsible mining.
ALL CRYSTALS SOLD AT TOXYFREE COME FROM SMALL FAMILY-OWNED MINES WHO USE THEIR BUSINESSES IN ETHICAL WAYS TO HELP AND SUPPORT OTHERS IN THEIR COMMUNITIES (JOB CREATION AND ENVIRONMENTAL PRESERVATION). (By supporting small, family-owned mines, local economies are stimulated which divests resources away from deforestation and other industries base on exploitation). Each crystal is traditionally-harvested using primarily surface mining methods like pick and axe leaving a minimal footprint while not contributing to environmental destruction by releasing chemicals or toxins that can harm the ecosystem.
