My Eco Journey

Hello, and welcome to my eco journey. 

In a consumer world where everything is just a click away it is so easy to think of convenience rather than sustainability. I know I am guilty of this. 

This is why you can feel brilliant buying from my website as I am doing everything I can to turn my business as eco friendly as I can, while maintaining a quick and easy to use service. I want to make a business that re-uses and recycles as much as possible, while also giving back. My personal aim is to be as sustainable and connected to nature as I can and I would like my business to reflect this. 

My mission is to create artwork that is kind to nature and accessible to everyone.

Materials Used 

Wherever possible I like to reuse or recycle the materials I use to create my art work.

My wooden items are all made from wood that would have otherwise be thrown away.

Either as log slices, driftwood or reused wood from old furniture that is no longer used or offcuts from other projects. I absolutely love turning materials that would have been thrown away into beautiful products that make you some, giving them a new life in your homes or gardens. 

All of my paper products such as cards and prints are now also printed onto recycled paper (please note that i am currently in a transition period, so if the print you order has already been printed it may be on acrylic paper rather than recycled). 

Packaging 

Where possible I re-use all of my packaging from my own deliveries therefore they don't always look beautiful on the outside. This does include plastic as I believe it is better to re-use it rather than sending it straight to landfill. 

I am constantly looking to make my packaging more environmentally friendly as well as re-using all packaging and therefore as I run out of supplies I will be purchasing recycled or biodegradable products. 

I am pleased to say that my new logo stickers are now biodegradable and my tissue paper is now made from recycled materials. 

In The Planning 

After I have used up all of my current supplies i will be replacing them with recycled or biodegradable products.

 

This will include: 

Recycled thank you cards 

recycled business cards 

Eco paper tape 

Eco paper fragile tape 

Eco bubble wrap and shredded cardboard 

This is a very exciting journey for me and something I feel strongly about. I cannot wait to share this journey with you all. Thank you for sticking by me through the transition to become sustainable.  

Giving back 

Being sustainable isn't just about using responsibly sauced materials, its about supporting communities and our environment and this is why I am thrilled to announce I am now a tree ambassador for one tree planted and with each purchase over £10 you will be giving back and helping to fight climate change. 

How will you help

Every order placed over £10 will donate £1 to plant a tree. 

Every sunrise collection original you buy £5 will be donated to plant 5 trees in Africa.
