All of the packaging that I use for my art is recyclable, biodegradable and/or recycled.
All cellophane bags to package prints are re-usable and biodegradable.
Envelopes for cards are made from recycled paper.
I get my prints, packaging & frames from small, local businesses as often as possible. Most of my behind-the-scenes products are sourced locally and sustainably.
I live a vegan lifestyle. After watching several documentaries and finding out how much of Earths natural recourses it takes to produce meat and dairy, I decided to cut it out completely. click here to read some facts.
I've been vegetarian since the age of 5, and vegan for almost 3 years now, and I've never felt healthier, happier & stronger!
buying second hand
I buy 90% of my clothing from charity shops, or from second-hand markets, up-cycled clothing stores, or from friends. I love to do this, since I can always find unique, one-off pieces of clothing that I know I will love and use till their day is done (until they start ripping and falling apart because I've used them so much!)
Support small business'!
I want to incorporate what I learn about environmental conservation into my everyday life, without making others feel as though they aren't 'doing' enough.
Life is not about perfection; its about doing the best you can, and living a life that you love, while being conscious and causing minimal harm to those around you.
I donate 10% of profits from my limited prints to these charities.
Donating is important to me because in some cases, where changing my lifestyle/habits may not be applicable, it can help those who set their life to helping others make a difference and practice what they set out to do.

We can all do our part - it's not about perfection; it's about doing what we can, and what feels right for us. Everybody is different :)
