I make all these things for you, and I am so careful with the materials I use to make them, but then I need to send them to you, and that means PACKAGING!
All of my packaging is recyclable, recycled or biodegradable. I understand the beauty of unwrapping a beautiful thing, like it’s a present...but the bright and sparkly packing, though exciting, is waste and can do a lot of damage.
All boxes and rigid mailers I use are made out of 100% recycled and recyclable materials by Ecoenclose - a socially conscious company. They are also naturally biodegradable (no glitter)!
Although there is some non-recycled material in the plastic sleeves I use to protect your prints, I want you to enjoy and keep your prints safe. I’ve researched biodegradable sleeves as well, but haven’t found any yet that are acid free. If I use the biodegradable sleeves on the market now, your prints would yellow over time. As soon as there is an option that works - you know I’ll be all over it.
I use craft paper stickers made with recycled brown paper material for package labelling, and recycled brown paper for all of the identification and education cards I add to your prints.
Every piece of packaging you see wrapped around your Drawn to Ecology prints or holding them safe on their way to you has been chosen because of its relative sustainability and lower impact, while still performing its function of getting your art to you.
