looking after our home

As a bit of a tree-hugger at heart, I have no interest in running a business that harms the environment in which we live. My art is all about connection with the natural world and how fortunate we are to live in such a magical place, so when I consider the environmental impact of running decobike this is rooted in a genuine desire to do the best I can for people and planet. Listed below, in no particular order, are the ways in which I consider decobike to be an ethical and environmentally friendly company. If you have any feedback how I could do better I’m absolutely open to suggestions.

  1. 100% Water-based, low VOC paints used for all painting projects
  2. For oil on canvas work I’ve swapped to using water-based Winsor & Newton Artisan colour paint
  3. 100% recycled and recyclable or reused packaging
  4. 100% recycled paper used for greetings cards, bookmarks and Kraft prints
  5. 100% Organic cotton and Soil Association accredited water-based screen printed T-shirts
  6. All clothing is Fairwear accredited ensuring ethical working conditions and Peta vegan approved
  7. Local orders delivered by cargo bike, all other orders ridden to the post office via cargo bike
  8. 100% renewable energy powered art studio
  9. Artist powered largely on our chickens’ eggs and veggies grown in the garden
  10. Very limited runs made for prints and clothing so no unused products
