Kirsty Larmour Photography – Eco Statement

As a former Environmental Consultant it’s important to me that I make efforts to minimise the environmental impact of my business. I endeavor to undertake the following steps:

  • Run a paperless company as far as possible
  • All business printed materials will be on recycled or post-consumer waste card stock
  • All client printed materials will be on recycled card by default, changeable to another card type on request only
  • All packaging materials will be recycled
  • Bulk buying and bulk shipping will be undertaken whenever possible
  • All client information should be available electronically, including contracts, pricelists and product information
  • All shipping materials should be recycled where possible – this includes charity donations, neighbourhood recycling and donation to schools/playgroups
  • Pre shoot consultations should take place over the phone wherever possible to avoid unnecessary travel
  • Client deliveries should be grouped together, especially when off island, to avoid multiple road journeys
  • Company newsletters will be sent electronically
  • All cameras/batteries etc should be recharagble
  • Other equipment, eg computers, scanners etc should be repaired and used for as long as possible
  • Reduce consumption of products, reuse where possible and recycle as a last resort
  • Keep researching to find sustainable sources for products, and more eco-friendly options. Endeavour to offer a recycled album and prints on eco-friendly paper in the future
  • Keep researching local printing options that can replace the products I source from overseas

They’re small steps and I’m far from perfect but I hope these baby steps will help to offset the things that I can’t control, like the fact most of my products need to be flown in from overseas, and the need to use a car to get to the majority of my photo locations.
