Green Policy  

At Artsite®
We reduce energy usage in the gallery by:
  • the use of solar power to operate gallery lighting and equipment during daylight hours
We reduce paper usage in the gallery by:
  • communicating with clients and artists by email where possible.
  • managing files and records on computer to avoid the need for printed documents.
  • when we do use paper for printing, we try to reduce paper usage by printing on both sides of the page and only print the pages needed.
  • using recycled paper and card for invitations, catalogues and publications where possible.
  • using a graphic designer and printer who are aware of and use environmentally sensitive processes and products
  • sending out invitations by email – and encouraging clients currently receiving postal invitations to consider email alternatives.
We re-use and recycle artwork packaging, paper and plastics where ever possible by:
  • buying 50-100% post-consumer waste recycled and/or buying certified from renewable resources, office paper, envelopes, stationary, toilet paper, kitchen towel and tissues.
  • arranging for toner cartridges to be recycled.
  • returning packaging material to artists and suppliers for reuse and/or re-using wrapping materials wherever possible.
We further reduce waste and recycle by:
  • maintaining a Gallery Worm Farm for organic materials recycling.
  • using the worm fertiliser and castings in Artsite Gallery's council approved community verge gardens.
  • sharing excess worm juice to neighbours and the local community.
At openings and events we:
  • encourage the use of reusable or recyclable products by discouraging the use of disposable products such as non-recyclable plastic plates, glasses and cutlery.
  • discouraging use of individual bottled drinks, especially water, to minimise waste.
  • encourage vegetarian options and the use of catering supplies that are organic, fair trade and sustainable where possible.
  • recycling all paper and glass packaging.
We encourage the use of public transport by:
  • providing transport options and maps on our website showing how to travel to Artsite Gallery by public transport.
