Art supplies?
April 24, 2019 - 10:48 am

Hello, I’m an artist and I’ve recently starting looking at how I can be more eco friendly, which of course has lead me onto trying to reduce my plastic usage. I was wondering if anyone knew any paint brands that are plastic free as all of mine come in plastic tubes and trays and even my more pricey brushes have plastic handles. I do multi media so anything to do with paint would be greatly appreciated (including recycled or even plastic free acrylic)

I was also wondering if anyone know of any good eco friendly sketchbook brands that are still good quality, I know this isn’t plastic related, but I worry about this one quite a bit because I go through at least 12 sketchbboks a year, i’ve been going at this rate since I was about 10 which means I’ve used over 132 sketchbooks of varying sizes and have no idea where any of it was sourced.

So yeah, throw any suggestions or recommendations at me, it would be great to have a thread full of useful art tips and supplies so I can share it with art friends and others can find it too.
