Look ahead to a Greener 2020
Our main goal for 2020 is to make it a greener year. Hopefully, by making these positive, sustainable changes, we can make this infiltrate every part of our business from packing to our offices and our own recycling. By taking care of our business, it in turn helps us take care of you.
How to be Greener: Reuse Recycle
We really want to make this year greener; with the use of recycled boxes (literally) and the go green climate initiative from DHL for our overseas parcels put into place. We have also just installed new LED lighting in the warehouse for max efficiency and safety for our team.
Last year we starting thinking about water and wastage and this year our focus is better. We have been researching recycled packaging last year and the best way to apply this to our process. 2020 will be the year that we not only use recycled packaging but you the customer will have more control.
With orders going out from January 2020, we will be using recycled packaging from deliveries and orders. Recycled boxes will come with a little sticker showing that the box your order has come in has helped us reduce waste. Keep your eyes out for our recycled boxes and reach out on social media if you reuse it further.
Just watch this space.
We mentioned in our last blog about how proud we are of the workshops with Mind. This year we want to work more closely with the local schools and continue expanding both our tutors and what we teach. Never be afraid to request a class or ask us to organise a specific class on a specific date. We can always try and if we have enough interest we are happy to run it. We’re looking to reuse as many materials as possible and allow our attendees to create something thats creative and sustainable.
A lot of our workshops are already up on our website including children and adult.
Investing in products
You, the consumer is changing, you don’t want throw away fashion or cheap tools. You would rather save your pennies and buy a better quality paint or tool. This will help you improve your work but also better quality items generally last longer.
With this in mind, we are excited to launch our Crafty Arts essentials range. Good quality products at affordable prices with the hope to launch a premium range by the end of the year. The goal is that products in the range will be launched in the 1st quarter of 2020
So 2020 looks really exciting for us, thank you for sticking with us over the years.
