I often call myself a one-woman-show, as my workday typically consists of me in my studio, painting, sewing, printing and shipping. However, it really is bigger than that as I rely on other companies and individuals to manufacture and print the t-shirts I sell, print fabric for my plushies, etc. One of my priorities as a business owner is to be responsible about the choices I make and their impact on both the environment, and the people working at companies I choose to partner with.
The company I use to print my fabrics for plushies is located in North Carolina. They compost much of their waste, and use biodegradable inks with a printing process that uses minimal water and energy. Scrap fabrics from misprints are recycled to be used as stuffing in car upholstery and sewing projects for charity among other things. Their packaging is also recycled and recyclable.
Plushy stuffing is recycled plastic poly-fill
My packaging is 100% recycled and/or recyclable.
