Ever since launching La Luna Rose 3 years ago I have been working on a way in which we can support the community that we work in and give back to our environment. To date we have supported Not for profits such as R U OK DAY and Bali Wise which run close to our heart however we were also interested in making more of a commitment. After watching the incredible Documentary ‘PLASTIC OCEANS’ and living on the island of Bali that references this documentary so much, we knew we wanted to lock hands with a strong environmental group. That’s when we learnt about 1% For the Planet.
This Not-for-profit is a global movement connecting businesses, consumers & non-profits committed to address the most pressing issues facing our planet. Started in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, contributing members have given more than $150 million to environmental nonprofits to date. Our founders - successful entrepreneurs who grew thriving businesses - understood that they were not alone in being committed to protecting the environment and giving back to our global community.
Alongside our sustainable & ethical practises, as a partner of 1% for the planet, we're taking responsibility & giving back to this beautiful place that we get to live & create in.
Through this movement, La Luna Rose has pledged to donate 1% of our annual sales to two charities very close to our heart and home, Bali and New Zealand. This is our dedicated commitment and we will also continue to support other charities when certain moments and times arise.
A Non profit organisation started by Balinese sister Melati and Isabel Wijsen (At ages 10 and 12) to ban all plastic bags on the island of Bali by 2018.
"The more the people are aware of this issue, the more solutions we see rising. With these solutions, everybody is working together toward healing our oceans."
With 24,000 single use plastic bags being used worldwide EVERY SECOND, these girls are determined not to give up. They're taking the world by storm with their powerful message, and they won't just stop at Bali. If we all listen, it can be really simple. Get into the habit of bringing your own reusable totes to the grocery store. Yes, every single time.
Sustainable Coastlines is a New Zealand charity run by a team of hard-working staff and a network of passionate volunteers with a vision for Beautiful Beaches, Healthy Waters and Inspired People.
Their mission is simple and tangible: to enable people to look after the coastlines and waterways they love. To deliver on this mission, they coordinate and support large-scale coastal clean-up events, riparian planting and restoration activities, education programmes, public awareness campaigns and training workshops. To date, they have removed 1,320,063 litres of rubbish from the ocean and planted 55,989 trees on coastlines.
We are CHUFFED to be apart of this global movement. And if you too own your own business? I hope we can inspire you to also get on board.

I'm sure you have probably already seen our recent launch of our CHARITY T-SHIRTS. Recently our head designer, Rosie designed 4 T-Shirts to unite together and help raise awareness around the Global Plastic Pollution crisis.
We caught up with the lengends behind the Non-profit and asked them a few questions about the work they do, how they are making waves around the awareness of this huge global issue and what we can do to help guide our planet to a better future. Read on & get inspired x

It is important to note that different countries have different sizing methods.
Most of the world goes by number sizing which is the easiest and most accurate.
Because we sell our jewellery all over the world, we have decided to stick with number sizing and have put together the below chart to help you out. The most common size for ladies is a size 7 and size 10 for man. If you are unsure of your size you can measure the inner diameter of one of your own rings and refer to the below measurements.
Feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any further issues.
Please also note that if you are ordering a wide band ring, its usually a good idea to go up a size.
Size 6 = Ring Sizes L, M, N. Inner Diameter measures 16.5mm
Size 7 = Ring Sizes N, O, P. Inner Diameter measures 17.3mm
Size 8 = Ring Sizes P, Q, R. Inner Diameter measures 18.1mm
Size 9 = Ring Sizes R, S, T. Inner Diameter measures 18.9mm
If you require a ring in a different size in any of the designs offered, please send us an email here and we will see what our clever silversmiths can do for you.
