We’re donating to environmental charities! You may have noticed over the past month that Pigments by Liv, has taken several new steps towards sustainability. We’ve already revisited the items we stock in our shop in terms of environmental impact by carefully considering the materials they are made of as well as their ability to enable an eco-friendly lifestyle.
We’ve swapped items for more higher quality materials, got rid of certain products altogether and added more products that replace several single-use plastics you may come across in our daily lives. All to encourage the idea that a sustainable lifestyle doesn’t have to be a limited one.
We pledge to donate 10% of profits to environmental charities
Every single collection in the Pigments by Liv catalog is inspired by nature, whether it be fauna or flora, the environment has always been a muse. Therefore, we pledge to donate 10% of our profits to selected environmental charities each month.
Collections and their environmental Charities
The maths behind each donation
Donations will be calculated based on Gross profit for each month attributable to a specific Collection based on total net (of returns from time to time) third party sales for the month less product, supplier carriage/ shipping, any other direct cost of sale including discounts apportioned on a pro rata basis across the number of collections sold.
Meet the chosen Environmental Charities
Now we’ve covered all the boring financial stuff, let’s meet the charities we’ll be donating to! *Pigments by Liv is by no way affiliated with any environmental charities but is merely a supporter of their good work.
The Orca Collection and the Sea Watch Foundation
“Sea Watch Foundation is a national charity working to improve the conservation and protection of whales, dolphins and porpoises in British and Irish waters.”
“Established in 1991 as a specialist Wildlife Information Bureau, Fox Deterrence Consultancy, it has incorporated a Wildlife Hospital since 1993 which, today, admits and treats over 1000 foxes per year, including 250 cubs. It appears regularly on TV, radio and other media, both in the UK and internationally, has received awards from RSPCA, International Fund for Animal Welfare, media and TV and is honoured to have Chris Packham and Anneka Svenska as Patrons.”
The Daffodil Collection and Plantlife
“Plantlife is a British conservation charity working nationally and internationally to save threatened wild flowers, plants and fungi .”
The Rhino Collection and Blankets for Baby Rhinos
The Save the Tubby Unicorns T-Shirt and Sweatshirt are a favourite of many, by accumulating charitable donations I hope this design really does help to save the tubby unicorns. Donations raised from the Rhino Collection will go to Blankets for Baby Rhinos!
“We are a craft conservation group that supports wildlife orphanages and anti-poaching units, by supplying them with knitted and crochet blankets and clothing. We also use our crafts to raise funds for our beneficiaries to supply much needed equipment and animal feed.”
The Panda Collection and WWF
As mentioned in a previous blog about the creation of the Panda Art Print, the WWF showed me why I needed to change my lifestyle immediately or risk harming the planet. Therefore, it was only right to donate a portion of the profits raised through the panda collection to them.
“To stop the degradation of the planet’s natural environment and to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature, by:
- conserving the world’s biological diversity
ensuring that the use of renewable natural resources is sustainable
- promoting the reduction of pollution and wasteful consumption”
I’ve been so excited to share this news with you all and am looking forward to doing more for the planet by making my first donation to each of these five environmental charities at the end of the month!
