Within my small business I constantly make big lists of things I want to achieve… and slowly but surely I’m ticking them off the list. Here’s what I’ve been able to tackle so far:
HOW TO BE MORE ECO FRIENDLY!
Mounts – I don’t sell my prints with mounts. This saves wastage.
Pricing- Because I don’t use mounts (which used to be one of my biggest costs) it means I’ve been able to reduce the overall price of my prints for my customers.
Size – I print all of my work ‘in-house’ which means I can print to order and can now offer any print in A4 and A3 size. Again, this means that I can control what I’m storing & reduce wastage.
Sustainable Packaging – I don’t use plastic. EVERYTHING is wrapped in hand drawn eco tissue and prints are posted with cardboard backing.
Farm grown – within my recycled packaging I use farm grown flowers and seed-heads to decorate. These beautiful flowers have been grown here on the farm by Jenny from Bridgeside Blooms, who is helping us learn more about permaculture and it’s principles.
Materials – All of my makes are recyclable.
My homewares and seasonal decorations are made from FSC sustainably forested wood and each piece has been product tested to ensure safety.
Each piece comes in recycled packaging and hand drawn eco tissue.
