A Note on Sustainability
Sustainability is something that has loomed large in my mind since the age of six, when my mum took me to the library and we borrowed a book about our planet's environment and resources (she would probably say that "Jane borrowed the book" instead of "we borrowed the book", but I'm fairly sure she was gently steering me in the way that mothers do).
I remember being so moved by the book at the time that as soon as I'd finished the book I wrote "save the planet!" on many, many small slips of paper and dropped those notes from our flat's window. At the time, it had seemed like a good way of spreading the message (the irony of promoting conversation whilst wasting resources/creating litter clearly did not occur to six-year-old Jane).
Today, I'd like to think that I've wizened up somewhat, although my belief in the need to protect the planet's well-being remains unchanged. There are choices we can make both as a person and as a business that can help build a healthier, more sustainable world. At Jane Peng Art, this applies not only to the materials that we use to pack and ship our art, but also the businesses and institutions that we in turn support.
WHO WE SUPPORT
The scope of work that World Land Trust carries out is amazing. There are highly practical programmes in place that protect and restore deforested areas globally and they do this by working with local partners who are the most familiar with the challenges and issues in their area. There are also programmes that manage nature reserves on an ongoing basis and employ and support local rangers to help protect their wildlife as well.
The donations from Jane Peng Art support World Land Trust's Action Fund, which directs funding to areas where urgent conservation action is needed.
In short, your acquisition of artworks here on Jane Peng Art helps to advance the long-term vision of environmental sustainability. For this, from the depths of our hearts, we thank you.
To reduce our carbon footprint, we use environmentally-friendly packaging materials. The products we have sourced to protect and deliver your painting - including the bubble wrap, internal padding, packing tape, and external box - are all recyclable.
