Plastic pollution is a threat to many species around the world.
To reduce single-use plastic pollution (which adversely affects our environment), I use recyclable or reusable paper packaging wherever possible.
My current eco-friendly packaging:
Glassine bags are 100% reusable and recyclable, since they are 100% biodegradable paper. Glassine does not contain silicone or poly additives or coatings, and is acid-free, archival and humidity resistant, making it perfect packing for our giclee prints and greeting cards.
Jiffy Rigi mailers are made from recycled paper and can be recycled.
Compostable bags and mailers: our compostable zip-lock bags are perfect for re-use and home composting. They are not fully transparent but are clear enough to see your order.
As original artworks are expensive, most of them will be packaged in waterproof polypropylene (PP) bags. I encourage our customers to re-use any protective plastic packaging in your parcel. In addition, I will be re-using any plastic we receive, so customers may receive merchandise wrapped in re-used plastic.
I hope in the future to be able to package our artwork and merchandise in 100% environmentally-friendly packaging, but until such a time, please compost, re-use and recycle your packaging.
PLEASE NOTE: in stores, polypropylene (PP) bags or biaxially-oriented polypropylene (BOPP) bags are necessary to protect art products. All our products are accompanied by a friendly reminder to re-use these bags so they do not contribute to single-use plastic pollution.
