Sustainable art: Another year on howell illustration's sustainable journey

Updated: Apr 22, 2021

And a journey it certainly is. At the end of 2019/beginning of 2020, I succeeded in making all of my products zero waste for the customer, and I also went one better: almost all of my packaging and products are now printed on either environmentally-friendly hemp paper or recycled paper, and my printer is an eco-friendly printer, using vegetable based inks, offering recycled-paper options and posting most of their products wrapped in paper. The problem was: what was coming into my studio (my art supplies and so forth) was often wrapped in plastic.
