Not only do I want the materials to be environmentally friendly, but I am working to find suppliers with the same ethos that agree to send stock in packaging that contains no plastic.
Some items in my shop are commissioned and produced by companies and publishers I have created illustrations for; therefore, I do not have a say in their production process. I do, however, choose my clients carefully and will list as much information as I can on the individual products description page. Currently, these products include all puzzles and books.
I'm constantly trying to improve, so if you have any suggestions on how I can become more eco-friendly, I'd love to hear from you.
