We partner with Ecologi to offset our carbon emissions each month by planting a number of trees for our staff and each order placed.
Anything we create at Studio Dine is designed with reusability in mind so that it can be stored efficiently and repurposed over and over again. We rent or buy second hand where possible, use recycled/reusable materials and any new props post event are always added to our curated collection for hire in the future. In the case that we no longer need items or props, these are shared with others in the creative industry for repurposing elsewhere.
We believe that small change over time makes a big difference, so we do what we can to reduce waste in every way possible.
Some of these include…
At Studio Dine we work with florists who value sustainability, are foam free, and use seasonal florals where possible. We also partner with Floral Angels to donate any flowers leftover from events to members of the community who are vulnerable.
At Studio Dine Store we put a lot of thought into the brands and products we curate based on their design process, materials used, the environment in which they are made, and the future longevity of each item. We are always striving to support the makers who produce using more ethical and sustainable practices.
All Studio Dine Store candles are hand-poured in small batches in London and are made using 100% soy wax, cotton wicks and natural dyes to ensure they are completely natural, vegan & cruelty-free. We also repurpose any wax offcuts and scraps from the candle making process to make our unique zero waste marbled designs.
All packaging is either made from 100% recycled materials or is fully recyclable including our stickers, shredded paper, biodegradable bubble wrap, packing peanuts, tape, postage boxes and tissue paper. Boxes used are always reflective of the product size to avoid waste material.
