Sourcing & Sustainability
All inventory at AKindCrystal are selected from suppliers based in the EU, Brazil, China, India, as well as Swedish Suppliers, all who have personally visited mines or have personal relationships with manufacturers/miners that they source from.
My suppliers make sure operations are regulated and as safe as possible for miners & I in turn make sure to continuously research and improve relationships with them.
AKindCrystal uses widely recycled packaging down to the tape & stickers. Any bubble wrap or plastic are pre-loved recyclables from orders we receive so nothing is wasted. Our packing Peanuts are biodegradable so just run them under water & they disappear with no harm to our environment.
A few crystals may be sent with re-usable linen organza bags. I do this with the hope to encourage you to re-use as much of the packaging as you can!
Sustainability Initiative: Tree Planting
After ALOT of discussions between my suppliers as well as different organizations, I decided the most natural collaboration was with One Tree Planted. (External Site)
Minimum one tree is planted for every order placed through our website. This can be tracked with the online tracker on the front page however it is updated in intervalls & therefore you wont see the tracker jump when you place your order.
I will keep updating once trees are planted. Based on location & time of year, One Tree Planted will determine the best tree species to plant.

The Ethics of AKC
I created AKindCrystal to find others who were following the same personal development I was with crystals. This without judgement & as a community of lovers of what nature can give us. It is important for me that you find that right crystal, no matter whether it is with me or other sellers on the market so please make sure to do your research.
Since starting AKindCrystal, there have been a dramatic increase in sellers similar to mine & it has been increasingly difficult to distinguish who is who. Unfortunately, this has led to debates & discussions in the Swedish crystal selling industry that have not been so pleasant towards customers as well as sellers alike.
I took the decision early in the creation of AKindCrystal to not be part of these discussions & I ask politely to have AKindCrystal as a free space of any discussions or recommendations of other suppliers & crystal sellers (This also includes all communications including DM, Lives, Email etc).
I want to highlight that AKindCrystal is a registered company & all my suppliers ask for a licence to sell and other important information. I ask thorough questions to my suppliers in which they must fulfill for me to order from them.
AKindCrystal stands for knowing where my crystals come from & to make sure that the crystals I bring in do not have a heavy impact on others (for example that workers get paid fairly) and to provide a service in which we are able to still care for Mother Earth as she provides us with the crystals I have in my assortment (environmentally friendly packaging to be reused, reduced or recycled).
