Environmental policy

Mollie Vaughan Studio operates through an environmentally conscious practice and thus, aims to create works and provide services that are completely carbon neutral and produce no waste. By aligning with an eco-conscious practice, Mollie Vaughan Studio aims to actively engage in the environmental impacts of its operations.

These are some of the practices that have already been implemented:

Printing/Framing locally to reduce carbon emissions from transportation.

Printed promotional material is printed on recycled paper using vegetable-based inks, and where it is possible, worksheets and tasks are sent digitally via email to clients for completion. 

Works are framed under UV glass and with UV mountboard to reduce the fading of colours and other damages to work overtime, meaning they last longer without needing to be replaced or repaired periodically.

Works are packaged/transported using recycled bubble wrap, cardboard and other recycled materials which are then reused for transportation of other works.

All services and packages are provided completely online when applicable, to reduce emissions from fuel exhaust as well as reducing paper wastage.
