Seeking Serenity's commitment to peace and spirituality extends naturally
to the community and the environment.
Seeking Serenity takes great care in exploring and developing sustainable
practices and only partners with companies and individuals that hold
themselves to similar standards. We work with people all over the world
to support economically and environmentally sustainable businesses that
respect their employees, the community, and the earth. We currently have
working business relationships with small businesses across the USA,
China, Peru, and the Philippines.
With each product you buy at Seeking Serenity, you will receive a tag that
is seeded with wildflowers. Simply plant the tag and make your community
more beautiful and environmentally-friendly (all plants absorb carbon
dioxide and give off oxygen, which positively impacts climate change).
Instructions for Planting
- Remove safety pin from shirt or untie string on jewelry pouch
- Separate string/pin from the seeded tag
- Place the seeded tag in soil that is about 1" deep
- Water once a week and watch flowers grow!
Seeking Serenity strives to produce environmentally sustainable clothing
without sacrificing quality and comfort. Only the finest organic cotton,
bamboo, and non-toxic water based inks are used to create a sustainable
high-quality product. Some fading over time is natural. As more solutions
become available we may alter materials, production, or shipment
All jewelry collections have been designed by Seeking Serenity.
Jewelry sold at Seeking Serenity is created using recycled or up-cycled
metals, whenever possible, and organic cotton yarns. The pouch necklace
is made from Pakucho organic cotton yarn that is vegan and fair trade
(with GOTS certification).
Seeking Serenity has gone the extra step to use jewelers that minimize
their impact on the planet. All diamonds have been sourced with the
guarantee that internationally accepted standards for conflict-free
diamonds have been met.
Distant Village Packaging works with artisans primarily living in Nepal,
Philippines, Ecuador, Thailand, Vietnam, and Indonesia to create economical,
social, and environmentally sustainable packaging options.
Distant Village Packaging currently provides Seeking Serenity with handmade
Manila hemp (a relative of the banana plant) and pineapple silk pouches for
jewelry items. Manila hemp is a fiber from the banana plant family. Only a few
textiles are as strong or long lasting as Manila hemp, which is also excellent
at controlling air permeability. Pineapple silk is a leading premium sustainable
textile with a remarkably low carbon footprint. Only farms using traditional and
natural farming methods are used to grow these materials and all fibers are
separated, assembled, and sewn exclusively by hand.

At Seeking Serenity it is our pleasure to give back to the community. We pledge to donate 10% of all profits.
5% of profits are donated to the Lifesaver Patient Aid Fund at the Hazelden Foundation. The Hazelden Foundation saves lives by helping people recover from the disease of addiction. Patient Aid is allocated to those who need care but lack the resources to get treatment. Please click here to learn more about the Lifesaver Patient Aid Fund.
5% of profits are donated to Water.org. Water.org is a U.S.- based nonprofit organization committed to providing safe drinking water and sanitation to people in developing countries. Water is a basic human right, and it is relatively easy to provide wells that support long-term access to clean water. Right now, roughly 884 million people (one in eight people) in the world do not have adequate access to clean water.(1) Every 20 seconds, a child dies from a water-related disease.(2) Seeking Serenity shares the vision that one day everyone will have access to safe water.
