Unfortunately, we have come to realise that finding a balance between running a profitable business and sourcing sustainable products is extremely challenging. That being said, we prioritise sustainability and only source products that are either recycled, recyclable or reusable.
As we grow, we vow to always strive to find new ways to be more environmentally conscious in our business practices.
We’ve outlined below the ways we are currently doing our bit. If you have any questions or feedback for us, then please don’t hesitate to drop us a message
Being a predominantly paper goods business, we are very conscious of our impact on deforestation. To minimise our contribution, we use acid-free, recyclable paper.
As we grow, we are continuously learning about the different types of paper available on the market and looking into the possibility of sourcing recycled paper stock without sacrificing the premium feel and texture that brings our art prints to life.
Although admittedly this route makes our lives a tad more hectic, we chose to not print in bulk, but rather print all of our orders either on-demand or in limited quantities. This allows us to operate on a strict zero-waste policy.
We print all of our art using environmentally safe inks. Furthermore, we intentionally chose to work with printer partners who follow an eco-friendly policy of their own, including recycling regimes of printing plates and paper.
At the minimum, we ensure that our packaging includes only what’s absolutely necessary to protect and secure our products during transit.
In addition, all of our products are shipped in either 100% recycled, recyclable and plastic-free cardboard tube boxes or envelopes. Our envelopes are also 100% biodegradable.
The tissue paper we use is made from cellulose fibre where the active acid pulp is eliminated during processing. It is also lignin- and sulfur-free, meaning that our ink won’t transfer from the tissue and the paper won’t leave behind any of these chemicals when decomposing. For cushioning we use brown paper made from 100% recycled paper. We also use recycled paper stickers and thank you cards. All of our packaging is printed with eco-friendly soy/water-based inks.
We ship all of our domestic orders with Miles Express - one of Malta’s only delivery service company who have taken a step to become greener and invested in a fleet of eco-friendly vehicles.
