Anna Bario shares Bario Neal’s origins and more in two recent podcasts

Have you ever been curious to learn more about Bario Neal’s roots from one of the co-founders herself? Are you interested to hear more about our ethics, how we craft our collection and custom jewelry or the makings of our Sustainability Report? Look no further! Anna Bario recently took part in both the "Better World" and "Who’s Saving the Planet" podcasts. Dive into both podcasts (links below) to learn more about Bario Neal's history and pertinent environmental and jewelry-related topics such as traceability, mercury-free mining, and closed loop recycling (to name a few).

'Better World' with Henry Lihn and Max Moinian

About the podcast:

"Better World is an exploration of badass people doing really good things. We provide you with steps you can take to create real change in the world, as well as products that create and support a better world."

'Who's Saving the Planet?' with Lex Kiefhaber and Tony Noto

About the podcast:

"Discover how the minds, methods and money that fueled the explosion of innovation and disruption in silicon valley are working to build the technology, products and companies that will save the planet."

About this episode:

"Extracting metals from the earth is, by nature, not a sustainable practice. We have a finite amount of resources, after all. However, that doesn't mean that all methods of mining are created equal. Anna Bario, one half of the Bario Neal team, [discusses] how her company created a whole new vocabulary to define sustainability in the jewelry industry. From working with Artisanal Small-Scale Minors (ASM), developing a standardized code of conduct with her suppliers, using re-furbished or reclaimed metals and gems when possible, and educating her customer base about what sustainable practices they should be aware of and seek out, Bario Neal is establishing a new paradigm for wholistic, conscious and sustainable jewelry."
