Here are some of the steps I’ve taken to be as ethical as possible in my studio:

  • Powered by 100% renewable energy using solar panels and Ecotricity
  • All printing is on recycled paper using an EcoTank refillable ink printer
  • Office supplies from The Green Stationery Company
  • Pens and office waste recycled through Terracycle schemes
  • Voluntary design work undertaken for charities and campaigns
  • Low cost design work for small local businesses
  • MDF and particle-board free solid wood furniture, floorboards and construction
  • Natural paints and wood oils used throughout
  • Refillable environmentally-friendly cleaning products
