Interior Design Declares X Decorex panel discussion 'Creating a more sustainable interior design practice' - My FIVE TAKEAWAYS
Five takeaways from Interior Design Declares X Decorex panel discussion...
- We are all at different stages and we can learn together, share information and have a bigger impact together. If you are a designer or supplier to the interior design industry, please sign our pledge at https://www.interiordesigndeclares.co.uk/
- We each have very different routes in to working sustainably - there are many crossovers and not all are the same
- Look at some of the quick wins in how you operate your business. Switch to more ethical bank and pension. Use renewable energy. Rethink stationery. Digital waste is huge - look at clearing old emails, look at website efficiency.
- Site waste - in the UK 50,000 tonnes of plastic waste on building sites a year.
- Don't get overwhelmed but just start working in a better way! Clients will appreciate it and they often really like the storytelling of sustainable materials.
