There has been a lot of talk in the media and online about the environment lately, or rather, the damage to the environment that humans are causing. A lot of this talk came off the back of the BBC documentary 'Drowning in Plastic' that was shown two weeks ago. This has had a huge effect on me and ever since watching it I have been learning about ways to reduce the amount of plastic I put out into the world. As a result, I am currently working on making sure all of the packaging materials for my kits are biodegradable, compostable, reusable and/or recyclable. I use biodegradable cellulose bags to package each part of a kit. This keeps things together and keeps them clean and pristine, it can be reused and when you no longer have a use for it, it can be put on the compost heap. Each package you buy from me will still be beautifully wrapped and will still feel like a gift to yourself but it is important to me that I am not sending out products that damage the environment. So all wrapping materials will be reusable and I also use beautiful fabric scraps in the packaging too, for example, in the picture below, the needle is secured in a piece of Liberty Tana Lawn. It's really important that we all try to do our bit for the environment and that's what I'm trying to do with Rose Petal Patterns.
