caring for our home

As a bit of a tree-hugger at heart, I’m determined my design business is as low impact on the planet as possible. My art is all about the connection with nature and how fortunate we are to live in such a magical place, so for me sustainability is rooted in a genuine desire to do the best I can for our wonderful world and the fabulous people in it. Top ten ways in which decobike designs is an ethical and environmentally friendly company:

  1. 100% water-based, low VOC paints used for all painting projects.
  2. For ‘oil on canvas’ work I now use water-based Winsor & Newton Artisan paint.
  3. 100% row packaging is either recycled and recyclable, or reused from my suppliers, or compostable (the protective card coverings look like plastic but actually they’re vegetable-based.
  4. 100% recycled paper used for greetings card, Kraft prints and bookmarks.
  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 approved vegan.
  7. Local orders delivered by cargo bike; all other orders taken to the post office via cargo bike.
  8. 100% renewable energy-powered art studio.
  9. I only offer very limited runs of prints and clothing, ensuring practically no unused products.
  10. My art aims to inspire both kids and adults to get outside and play!

If you have any feedback on how I could do better I am always open to suggestions.
