IT'S NOT EASY BEING GREEN
BUT I AM CONSTANTLY WORKING TOWARDS BEING A RESPONSIBLE GLOBAL CITIZEN AND MICRO BUSINESS
Equipment: All old technology is recycled & replacements are energy efficient and proportionately made of recycled components.
Packing and packaging: I have changed all of the plastic-based packaging for carbon-neutral, recyclable and compostable sturdy brown paper. Even my sticker packs are made with upcycled card stock. The remaining plastic packaging is also recyclable.
Website: This website is hosted by carbon neutral company. Even the website design is made to not only be friendly to dyslexic and photosensitive users but it is also designed to have a minimal drain on your electronic devices.
Art Supplies: All paper and card stock are bought locally in the UK and come from sustainable resources. All polychromos and pencils are composted, and pens/nibs/lids are currently in storage for upcycling* or recycling.
Travel: Either by foot, bike, rail, or other public transport to minimise my carbon footprint.
Even as a small micro sole trader I am making both economical, ecological, and environmentally friendly adaptions to my business. This, as well as other aspects of my business, is always evolving and changing to make sure I'm trading consciously, neutrally, ethically, and responsibly.
While you're here!
*I am still researching options and possibilities of how to recycle the pens that I use so that they do not end up in a landfill (they're just in a large tub in my office at the moment – if anybody would need these for an upcycling project they are more than welcome to them!)
