☼ Tree Hugger {maybe?} ☼ ♥

Nobodies perfect and I would be lying if I said that I am doing everything I possibly can to reduce my impact on my environment; how many times have I got to the grocery store and realized I forgot my cloth bags or drove when I could of walked. But, I do make a conscious effort to try! Which is why I spend tons of time looking for more eco-friendly ways to run my business.

Some of the things you will be happy to know that are already in effect is paperless information & price lists and online proofing galleries, both of which are traditionally printed. Other things, such as the packaging you receive your products in, are made from recyclable materials; all personal notes are written on paper bought through a Fair Trade Company {organized social movement and market-based approach that aims to help producers in developing countries obtain better trading conditions and promote sustainability}. And the list goes on. The point is that a lot of effort is put into delivering a product that is both excellent quality and has a minimum impact on the world we depend on.

For this reason I am extremely excited to start offering ‘MAGNOLIA ALBUMS’! I think that WMD {wild magnolia design} truly describes it best…..

“A handmade blend of nature and luxury, the Magnolia Album is currently the only environmentally friendly flush mount album in the world. Each book is assembled without the use of large machines, by hand, in a small Santa Monica studio. Cover and endpaper options are meticulously selected for their durability, sustainability, minimal environmental impact, and beauty. The Magnolia Album is also the only environmentally friendly album currently available with completely archival quality papers, inks, and binding materials………. undoubtedly the first of its kind.”

Wow, sounds pretty good right?!? I thinks so! Let me know if you want to know more , or if you have any ideas on how to make Karmen Meyer Photography more eco-friendly, I would love some suggestions =) In the meantime, here are some photos of the new albums! ENJOY!!

Truly,

Karmen


100% raw silk luxury cover options.   Although silk is famous for its rich toning, luxurious feel, and incredible durability, it is a little known fact that silk is also one of the most environmentally friendly fabrics on the market. This is mostly due to its incredible sustainability, as the caterpillars spinning the silk feed on mulberry bushes, which is one of the fastest-growing and renewable plants in the world. Additionally, the raw silk we use is not heavily processed, making for an organic, minimal-impact and renewable material that also looks gorgeous on an album cover.


Organic Vintage covers boast 100% hemp canvas printed with a special transfer process involving archival quality inks to produce a stunning effect on your photographs.
