Sustainability & Responsibility

Welcome fellow eco warrior. In collaboration with the print service I use, we are getting greener every step of the way. Read about how we are doing this below.

Print on Demand and Local Fulfillment
 

Did you know deadstock fabric and unsold inventory is reportedly responsible for 10% of the world's carbon emissions? 

Each product you see in my shop is made on demand, which means once you place an order, we produce it specifically for you, only producing items we get an order for. Printing, packing and shipping products on a per-order basis means you never have to worry about unused stock going to waste or ending up in a landfill.  Phew, that's one thing less to worry about.

Where possible we try our best to use local fulfillment services. Fulfilling orders closer to you reduces the amount of time packaging spends in transit. Shorter shipping distances = less environmental impact. My printing company and distributors have a global local fulfilment service. Yay!

Ink Used

We only use water-based or eco-solvent inks. Water-based inks are innks that use water as the main solvent for carrying pigments. Basically, it means they are made from water rather than plastic or PVC. This means it is much kinder for the planet and limits the safety risks for operators as well as you, the end customer. Products that use water-based inks (like mine here) are widely recyclable. 

Strong solvents have a high content of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) - which are gasses/chemicals emitted from certain solids and liquids. Eco-solvent inks are suspended in mild biodegradable solvent and don't contain as many VOCs meaning less of an odour. It also means they are waterproof, lightfast and scratch resistant. Hoorah!

Packaging and Materials

I am liking how much you care. Your art prints will be packaged in recyclable, compostable packaging and sometimes even the packaging itself is made from recycled content, how amazing is that!

My print company is also currently prototyping eco friendly alternatives to bubble wrap so we have that to look forward to!
