The Earth Without Art is Just Eh

Embracing sustainable art materials is not just about preserving the environment; it's about honoring the beauty and inspiration that nature provides. When we choose to create with care, we contribute to a legacy of art that respects and cherishes the world around us. After all, the true essence of art lies in its ability to reflect and celebrate the wonders of life, and there is no greater wonder than the Earth itself.

So let's partner together to combat climate change, little by little. Together, we can make a significant impact in mitigating the effects of climate change and creating a healthier world for future generations. It's important to think about the materials we use and the effect it has on our planet. Learn more below

How we contribute

Every order plants a tree

We want to make it simple for anyone to help the environment by planting trees. Together we can restore forests, create habitat for biodiversity, and make a positive social impact around the world. Every order plants one tree.

Sustainability in the Studio

Creating art with a focus on sustainability involves using earth-conscious materials, even in traditional oil painting. By selecting non-toxic oil paints, eco-friendly solvents, and responsibly sourced brushes and canvases, artists can minimize their environmental impact.

Contributing towards ocean clean up with every order

Plastic pollution in the world's oceans is one of the biggest environmental issues of our time, impacting nearly 900 marine species. 2% of every order on MJR Studio is contributed towards The Ocean Cleanup.

Planting A Tree For Every Order

Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity. They also provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines.

Through their leaves and bark, they absorb harmful pollutants and release clean oxygen for us to breathe. In urban environments, trees absorb pollutant gases like nitrogen oxides, ozone, and carbon monoxide, and sweep up particles like dust and smoke. Increasing levels of carbon dioxide caused by deforestation and fossil fuel combustion trap heat in the atmosphere. Healthy, strong trees act as carbon sinks, offset carbon and reducing the effects of climate change.

Cleaning up our rivers and oceans

The Ocean Cleanup, a non-profit organization, is developing and scaling technologies to rid the world’s oceans of plastic.

Every year, millions of tons of plastic enter the oceans, primarily from rivers. And the plastic that’s afloat within the oceans isn’t going away by itself. To effectively solve the problem, we need to both halt the trash flow from rivers, and remove legacy plastics from the oceans at the same time.

Using Earth conscious materials in the studio

In a world where we are increasingly aware of our impact on the environment, choosing products like Gamblin oil paints and non-toxic solvents is a step towards a more sustainable future for art. By opting for these eco-friendly materials, artists can continue to create their masterpieces without compromising the health of our planet. These products are designed to reduce harmful emissions and minimize waste, allowing creativity to flourish responsibly. Furthermore, the use of non-toxic solvents ensures a safer studio environment, protecting artists and their loved ones from harmful fumes.

Reusing packaging whenever possible when shipping artwork is a great way to reduce waste and minimize the environmental impact of shipping. By using packaging materials more than once, you can help lower the amount of resources needed to ship artwork and decrease the amount of waste that ends up in landfills.
