Sustainable Packaging

Here at Have it Framed we are passionate about reducing our impact on the world.  At home Grahame has taken steps to reduce his carbon emissions by installing Solar PV, a Home Battery & Air Source Heatpump along with switching to an Electric Car for all transport. 

Grahame's Solar PV install, 5.65kWp

Likewise we do the best we can to reduce our environmental impact in the business by sourcing our wood from suppliers who use sustainable sources and recycling all our waste. Our model of only ordering wood as we need it also ensures we aren't wasting this precious resource by ordering too much and storing it !


One area we really struggle with reducing our impact is our protective wrapping for framed pictures.  Quite frankly, nothing works as well as bubble wrap. That being said, we want to do something about our plastic use, so we are going to begin wrapping frames with fairly resilient finishes in Brown Kraft Paper rather than Bubblewrap. We'll also be switching to Brown Paper tape for wrapping rather than plastic tapes.  You'll see the change roll out gradually as we deplete our stocks of plastic based wrapping materials.
