Quirky, eco-friendly and fun, Evergreen Wraps will expand your origami horizons. The idea is to (cleverly) wrap gifts in these printed fabrics rather than in paper, and then to use the wrapping again and again. Or transform it into a sarong. Or a scarf. Or a basket.
It’s a wrap
Madomat Environmentally Friendly Graphic Design
Eco-friendly graphic design requires a full understanding of how marketing communication activities can affect the environment. At Madomat, we’re committed to minimising our impact on the world around us and helping our clients to do the same.
From FSC recycled papers and vegetable-oil-based inks to using digital instead of offset printing according to the quantities needed, we understand every aspect of green, sustainable graphic design, including implementing carbon neutral marketing campaigns.
1% for the Planet
Through 1% for the Planet, more than 1200 companies worldwide donate 1% of their sales to environmental groups and organisations every year. We’re proud to be a member, donating half of 1% of our turnover to the Woodland Trust and the other half to the Centre for Alternative Technology. Since we merged with Grain Creative, our membership is now under that name.
The Woodland Trust
We’re lucky to have some of the most beautiful ancient woodlands in the world here in the UK. The Woodland Trust is concerned with making sure future generations can enjoy them as much we do, as well as developing new sites which benefit both communities and the environment. We have sponsored part of a wood two miles from our Buckinghamshire office and we are adding to the sponsored area every year.
Centre for Alternative Technology
By promoting and educating about sustainable technologies such as renewable energy and environmental building, the Centre for Alternative Technology is working hard to find practical solutions to the problems that are facing our planet — all the while showing that sustainability is not only easy to attain, but can also provide a better quality of life.
Did you know that printing has the lowest take-up of environmental policies of any major industry? That the paper industry is the world’s fifth largest industrial consumer of energy? Or that the UK is the world’s third largest importer of illegal timber?
Things like this can make it seem like the design industry is lagging behind in its responsibility to the planet. However at Madomat, we’re proud to be making a difference – whether it’s by using recycled materials, keeping chemicals to a minimum and cutting waste, or by supporting organisations like 1% for the Planet.
Of course, it doesn’t stop there. We see each new project as a fresh opportunity to share our knowledge and experience with our clients — by educating and inspiring, we can achieve positive results that reach out far beyond the project brief.
