Doing Our Bit - Highlights
Act to reduce and minimise emissions.
Offset what emissions we can’t avoid.
Report and hold ourselves accountable.
We started discussions with Toitu, a NZ organisation who offer carbon certification programmes. With them we will work through steps above. While this is in progress we started doing our own provisional emission sums to see what contributes to our footprint and where we need to make changes.
We had a stack (over 3 shelving units full) of old inks we no longer used and destined for landfill. After a few phone calls we found a new home for them. They’ve been donated to the Canterbury University Fine Arts to be used for their new screen-printing course. We're chuffed there's another use for them and that we're helping students follow their artistic dreams. It took a few van trips to shift homes.
