Some of my art supplies were given free from local people, businesses and a school which closed down in 2018. I am re-using these products.
Some junk such as cardboard, tubes, are re-used into art, like sculptures.
My late Grandad had lots of cotton, which I am re-using.
All empty tubes from the paints are recycled.
Used paper is recycled.
I use packaging from a local business which I am re-using.
I use biodegradable tape.
I use biodegradable / recycled brown parcel wrap.
Bin liners are biodegradable.
I use Miniml Refills for anti-bacterial spray and hand wash: https://minimlrefills.co.uk/
Where possible, I group children into family groups, so there aren't repeated trips to lessons.
Some children walk to the studio from their local school.
