This is where we have the answers to many of the questions that are frequently asked. We hope the following responses are helpful. If you still have general inquiries please feel free to contact us.
Q: Can I cancel an order once it has been placed?
In an effort to get our shipments to our customers as quickly as possible, your order cannot be canceled or modified once it is placed. However, you may be able to return your items to us once you receive them. Please contact us for details.
Q: Do you restock products that are sold out?
Most of our styles are seasonal or limited editions; this means that once they sell out they will not be restocked. However, some of our classic styles are frequently restocked.
Q: How are your products sourced?
A: Currently, the beneficiaries of our program are artisans who are employed by cooperatives through fair-trade upcycling weapons of conflict into jewelry.
Q: Does the Purple Buddha Project hope to expand its efforts to other parts of the world?
A: Absolutely. We are very excited about the opportunity to take our programs to other areas of the world that are in need.
Q: How does the money from my purchase change lives?
A: The Purple Buddha Project focuses on both the input & output of the benefits that can be created whereas most of our competitors or those with similar endeavor solely focus on one aspect. 1. The Purple Buddha Project up cycles weapons of conflict metal that would otherwise be sold as scrap metal while employing local disadvantaged artisans through fair-trade. 2. With the purchase of every jewelry piece, the Purple Buddha Project makes a donation to have 9 meals for children who attend school free of cost?
Q: Where did the name “Purple Buddha Project” come from?
A: The name was originally named to honor to founder’s friend who passed away during a skating accident.
Q: Do you answer questions on your blog yourself?
A: I try my best to answer those questions even though at times the Tumblr inbox does get filled up faster than I can actually reply to the answers. Any answers answered are directly from me, Forrest Curran.
