ARE YOU A WORLD-CHANGER?
World-changers are those who are committed to acting responsibly to help to make the world a better place for people, plants and animals alike by reducing wastage, recycling and seeking out reclaimed, upcycled, biodegradable, Fair Trade, local and sustainable solutions
Choose well, make it last.
I believe every little helps and we can all do our bit to help look after the planet. Few can claim to be completely environmentally-friendly, but I've decided to try my best to be responsible and try to avoid where possible the excess. I'm learning as I go along!
WHAT ABOUT ALL THAT PAPER YOU USE?!
The majority of my products are paper based which can all be recycled. The signature, luxury paper stock that I use can be completely recycled. The Studio has also recently started using recycled and handmade paper from delicate, lightweight 55gsm to thicker 130gsm paper with natural dyes & fibres – aspen, cutch, indigo, pomegranate, walnut, jute & hemp on Lokta or banana as well as fabric. In terms of the product usage, I'm continually seeking out useful, biodegradable and sustainable solutions to avoid the paper pretties ending up in the bin.
WHAT ABOUT THE PRINTING?
I recently changed the main print company that I use and the company I now use (most of the time) works in the most sustainable and environmentally-friendly way possible. They use certified vegan-friendly vegetable-based litho inks, chemistry-free plates, no animal glue and papers sourced from FSC®-certified mills and sustainable sources, helping to reduce my environmental impact, and yours!
WHAT ABOUT YOUR PACKAGING?
Goods sent out directly from the Studio use pre-used boxes or boxes made from recycled materials. No pretty, luxurious packaging I'm afraid just a brown or white box with a sticker on so you know its from me. Products are usually wrapped in plain tissue paper and sometimes also padded with shredded paper to help to protect it on its journey to you.
DO YOU USE CELLO BAGS?
No cello bags here! Items are sent out in paper bags, envelopes or cardboard boxes.
DO YOU USE BUBBLE WRAP?
I only bubble wrap acrylic pieces, as I haven’t found an alternative that I’m 100% confident in yet.
However items drop shipped directly from my supply partners may arrive bubble wrapped!
