The mark of a good organization, they say, is when it leaves its environment in a better state than when it first got there. With their main enterprise being critically dependent on the health and quality of the environment in which pearls are cultured, pearl farmers inevitably make it part of their mission to make their home turf a cleaner, greener place.

The Save the Palawan Seas Foundation (SPSF) was established in 2005 by Jewelmer and underscored the link between conservation and livelihood. The organization provides sustainable livelihood practices such as organic farming, tree planting and beekeeping for their partner communities, which allows them to make a living while at the same time preserving natural resources.

The foundation also aims to educate about conservation in order to ignite passionate action and inspire true change. For more information on Jewelmer’s environmental efforts, visit
