As mentioned last week, The Carat Soup is officially a sustainable luxury blog.

So what does this mean in reality? The answer is simple. All content shall be entirely focused on teaching, learning, promoting, sharing and celebrating luxury goods and services that incorporate a sustainability ethos.

Brands and individuals that prioritise social impact as much as they do quarterly reports.

Linked directly to the Sustainable Development Goals (to transform our world):

As you know I could wax lyrical about gemstones, jewellery and arts, even more so when there’s a mindful call to action. A true reflection and crossover of my personal and professional life!
