Picture framing is not often considered in the conversation regarding eco-friendly industries based on the nature of the products that are traditionally used. Most frames are made out of, you guessed it, wood, and that wood comes from our forests. We are people who care deeply about our environment and cherish every moment we get to spend in the beautiful places our world has to offer.
As a picture framers and people who care about our environment it is import to us that we try to find ways to minimize the impact that our business has on the planet. That is why we carry Framerica®’s Bonanzawood® moulding line. It is a line of moulding that is made of recycled, post consumer goods, such as; pallets, skids, construction materials, trim ends and saw dust. This “waste material” would otherwise be destined for our landfills or burned. The product is a composite wood of the highest quality, value, and is very consistent. We recommend it to all artists who are showing in our gallery and need framing, for its affordable price-point, and to anyone who is looking for a great moulding made in America with the environment in mind. By choosing Framerica®’s Bonanzawood® and indirectly supporting their mass recycling effort – our business and our clients effectively keep hundreds of thousands of mature trees standing. Framericas production facility in New York has been designated an “EPP Downstream Licensed Facility” signifying its pledge to produce mouldings using some of the greenest core materials available.
In honor of our 2nd annual “Surface Film” photography show to benefit Trout Unlimited, we are currently running a sale of 20% off your entire order when you use Framerica®’s Bonanzawood® moulding! Lets work together conserve your art and our planet!
