Sustainability

We are continuously striving towards becoming a more sustainable company.

For many years our creative director Ella Doran has been an advocate of the circular economy. You can read more about her and her projects at elladorandesigner

If you buy from us on line, you will know we re-use our packaging.

We strive to use materials that are long lasting and age well.

When you order roller blinds from us, we will take back your old ones to ensure the components can be reused or recycled. 

We re-use all of our end-of-line fabrics and wallpapers for workshops & events, and when possible, we make new products.

If you would like to order any of our wallpaper or fabric offcuts, please email us at info@elladoran.co.uk

 

Our aims:

  -   To create products that will last a life time, and to encourage re-designing, and re-using, before resorting to re-cycling

-     To be transparent and clear about the materials we use and what to do at the end of life of the product

-     To minimise the possible effects on human health and the environment arising from the activities of our company

-    To efficiently use energy and any raw materials in order to protect our natural resources

-     We donate to https://treesisters.org/ every month to help our carbon footprint. ‘TreeSisters exists to elicit collective responsibility for planetary restoration at the grass roots level with a focus on women and tropical reforestation’

-     All of our wallpapers that we produce are FSC certified.

-     We promote the circular economy through all of our suppliers ensuring they are doing their best for the re-use of their ‘waste’ materials

-     We encourage you and all our customers and colleagues to 'think' globally and 'act' locally' as much as possible
