We live in a world where convenience has taken priority over our planet. Recently there has been a shift in our thinking to rescue the environment we live in, and we at Dab Paints are doing our bit.
Even the smallest of changes and a pinch of mindfulness goes a huge way to changing the catastrophic course we are on.
We have thought very carefully about how we manufacture and package our paint to be sure we are aiding our industry to be on the right side of the battle for our planets environment.
It has been paramount in our plans to only use sustainable, recyclable, natural and bio-degradable organic products throughout our range of paints and packaging, and we have achieved it!
The Outer Sleeve
As you can imagine, shipping paint with improper packaging can get quite messy, so our rigid sleeves ensure the paints safety in transit, as well as a huge reduction in extra packaging materials needed to ship our paint.
They are made from recycled cardboard which means they have already started life in another form, they are fully recyclable, biodegradable and can be composted as even the inks we use to print are made from
organic materials which mean they break down naturally just like the cardboard itself.
Although as a society we are great at putting items into the correct recycling bins, this doesn't necessarily mean all the items get recycled in the way you intend. So we have added a little something special to help this process.
Each 500ml pot comes with seed paper, so you lovely people can grow a beautiful plant straight out of the sleeve, and after germination, just plant the whole sleeve into your flower bed. Not only will you be composting the packaging, but you will be giving back to the planet a plant that was once used to make our organic paint formula, thus restoring the balance.
The Inner Tin
The inner paint tin is made from 100% recycled steel/tinplate and is a material that is
practically infinitely recyclable. It is ethically sourced, safe, clean and non toxic which makes it the perfect eco-friendly vessel for our paints and the right choice for our environment.
Did you know that more than 15 million tons of steel/tinplate is recycled each year making it the worlds most recycled material!
Recycling doesn't always mean melting it down and starting again, you can re-use and re-purpose our tins. They make for great mixing pots or paint brush holders. Let's think outside the box, be mindful and take a step back from our "throw away" habits.
We have put a lot of thinking into our products and packaging in the hope that it will put a bit of fun into responsible recycling.
Remember reuse, reduce, recycle and paint the planet happy! ♻️
