original – Crab apple of Dalry


During the first winter of lockdown I was looking for something to work with, I felt quite trapped in the middle of Edinburgh, despite being a really vibrant city in normal times, life felt quite grey during my hourly walks outside. My environment was largely cement, stone and tarmac and I felt compelled to seek out little patches of plant life in basement gardens, wee parks and window boxes. This crab apple was in my neighbour’s garden,  and as I ventured out each day I was captured by the lovely golden fruits, and so Crab apple of Dalry was born.

Where possible I try to reuse packaging, so your packaging may not look split new! Rejoice in this – we are helping the planet with our own tiny actions! (-_-)

Prints are packaged in a polypropylene bag (PP5) to keep them dry during transit, you can recycle this along with plastic bags at plastic bag recycling points. Smaller prints are wrapped in noissue tissue, part of the Eco-Alliance. Where possible, I reuse cardboard as protection for the front of a print and I use bubble wrap bags as an outer packaging for medium sized prints and, where possible, recycled cardboard on larger prints. Please reuse all packaging so that it extends the life on the materials.

Cards are wrapped in noissue tissue, part of the Eco-Alliance. Individual cards are packaged in either a polypropylene bag (PP5) or a biodegradable cellophane bag to keep them dry during transit. You can recycle the polypropylene along with plastic bags at plastic bag recycling points. The cellophane bags are 30mu Nativia ® film, which can be added to your green bin to be industrially composted*. I still have quite a stock of the polypropylene bags; once I have used these up, I will switch wholly to cellophane.

Nativia ® film is made from corn or other sources such as sugar beet and potatoes among others, and conforms to the EN13432 standard, meaning it is biodegradable and compostable. It has also achieved the OK Biobased certificate from Vincotte. Nativia ® film breaks down quickly into carbon dioxide, water and biomass by microbial digestion in the right conditions.

The film is sourced from renewable sources and is food safe.

Nativia ® can be industrially composted and will disintegrate in six months to CO2, water and humus, a soil nutrient. It can also be mechanically and chemically recycled (not with other plastics because it has a lower melting temperature) and it can be incinerated. Nativia ® films do not biodegrade in landfill conditions.
