"Hi everyone. i would like to share a few of my thoughts on this subject with you.

Running a small business will always have some kind of impact on our enviroment and we are very aware of this .

The natural world is very important to me. Its what i draw obviously but more than that its what i love.

So what do we do to reduce any unesssesary harm to our surroundings? firstly packaging.

completely unavoidable, packaging is everywhere. changing from any plastic to cardboard was an easy first step for us. Waste cardboard is all used in our garden for compost or mulching around trees.

We print and frame everything here at home ourselves and make a quality product that is designed to last for many years. This reduces any wastage greatly.

Low energy lighting, geo thermal heating and efficient work practices all help in a small way.

Lastly, we are working with our suppliers where possible and encouraging them to make the same changes.

Thats all for now"
