BVS News plus Food Styling & Photography Tips & Resources
Like many businesses we consider the lifespan and environmental impact of every purchase and component of our processes - is it sustainably produced, what will happen to it if we no longer need it, is it absolutely necessary, what's the alternative, could we make a sustainable version ourselves etc.
It can be a compromise at times - for example, I often lust after black tissue paper to wrap your backdrop orders... It would really make our branding pop and give you a cool unboxing experience, but the dyes and production process are more damaging to the environment than the acid-free, unbleached one we currently use. And yes, I know there are 'eco-friendly' dyed tissue papers, but at a huge premium; too expensive for small businesses or brands that aren't 'luxury'.
We have to ask: Is it worth it? Often it isn't yet, but it is something to keep an eye on.
