- all packaging is plastic free and can be curbside recycled and/or reused 

- in addition, most of my packaging is made from recycled materials 
- i keep packaging minimal and don’t add lots of extras (business cards, fliers, physical coupons etc.)  to reduce        paper usage and likely waste

- for details on eco-friendly packaging solutions please check out my instagram or tiktok for informational videos      and posts. or feel free to message me about questions you may have. 

shop local and support wisely

⁃ with the ideal of supporting local small businesses in mind, i source as many of my materials and services    possible from shops in my neighborhood
⁃ all prints are made at a local, black-owned brooklyn print shop, Kre8tive Printing 

- my shipping and packing supplies are sourced from Ecoenclose (an eco-friendly spearhead in it's industry) and    bagsunlimited (a family owned and operated business in NY)
⁃ the majority of my paints, plasters, canvases and miscellaneous supplies are purchased at local art stores and            smaller retailers

- large corporate retailers, such as amazon and walmart, will not be used by this shop

supporting communities in need

⁃ this shop began as a fundraising effort to give to Black Lives Matter organizations and families affected by police      violence during the summer of 2020

- this past year has drawn mass public attention to ways our government, not only consistently abandons BIPOC        and LGBTQIA communities, but also systemically furthers their disenfranchisement and oppression

- i will always stay true to the reason this shop opened and use a portion of my profits to give back to marginalized    communities in need of aid and resources
