Philly's pledge to support our environment and keep our oceans clean
As a surfer and yoga teacher, Philly truly feels passionate about taking steps to living a more sustainable lifestyle. Each artwork and print is created with love and care, and supports our partnership with Hometree. For every print and artwork purchased, we donate a portion of the profits and plant one tree for each sale to help support the earth. Trees absorb carbon dioxide as they grow and the carbon that they store in their wood helps slow the rate of global warming. They also cool the air as they lose moisture and reflect heat upwards from their leaves. It’s estimated that trees can reduce the temperature in a city by up to 7°C. As well as boosting wildlife, trees also support our health by trapping dust and absorbing pollutants from the air. We carefully picked this tree planting charity for its transparency, we personally know that each donation grows into a tree. Based on the Atlantic coast of Ireland, Hometree are dedicated to regenerating and reforesting the earth.
All our prints are on Hahnemühle Hemp paper which as a plant is much more eco-friendly and sustainable than tree paper. When painting, Philly recycles and re-uses everything possible, she never buys single use plastics and uses wooden or cardboard palettes. She re-uses store bought tins as pouring cups, which are later recycled. As well as this, our packaging is all recycled and recyclable or biodegradable from our mailing boxes to our tape. This is part of our pledge to support our environment and keep our oceans clean. Each day Philly is making more conscious choices for a better, healthy world.
