For me, running a truly sustainable business means caring for myself, other people and the world around me whilst I make a living. At the end of the day I’m human and sometimes have to make imperfect choices, but I do as much as I am able with the resources and knowledge available to me. I try to take the more ecological and ethical options wherever I can, and am always on the lookout for changes I can make to live more aligned to my values.
I am to make my work…
Sustainable for me
Sustainable for others
Providing authentic offerings of value and worth to others
I purchase products and services from B-corps, small & independent businesses wherever I can.
Sustainable for the planet
I try to purchase new items and technology for my business only when something breaks or is essential.
I try not to waste materials, especially in my art practice. I will often use scraps and found household items in things I make.
Whatever waste I can recycle, I do recycle. I also make sure that any packaging materials I use are fully recyclable, and avoid plastics.
Carbon neutral hosting
I currently use Siteground hosting, which runs on the Google Cloud Platform. They match 100% of the energy consumed by their global operations with renewable energy and have committed to be carbon neutral.
