It’s Earth Day! Time to celebrate Mother Earth and also time to reflect on how we can reduce our impact on the planet.
I take pride in running an environmentally conscious business and I provide my clients with beautiful, sustainable photo products. You can read more about my promise to you on my website.
So with Earth Day in mind, I’ve included a list of ideas for some of my favorite (environmentally friendly!) photo gifts below…
Bamboo mounted prints
Standout and Bamboo Mounts lend a clean, contemporary look to your wall displays. Prints can be mounted on a sustainably harvested solid Bamboo panel, that gives a contemporary look to unframed images.
Bamboo Mounts are made from organically grown, renewable, and FSC certified bamboo that not only looks good, but is also friendly to our environment.
Yes, ornaments are typically for Christmas trees, but these designs are an excellent choice for unique gift tags, name tags, and, of course, hanging on a tree! Made by Bay Photo lab, a green-certified business.
I gifted these to my family portrait clients last Christmas and I hope they enjoy them for years to come.
Wood Blocks + Prints
This gift item is a simple way to create a rotating art display with 12 of your photos that sit as textured paper prints in a wood block.
The wood block is handcrafted in Colorado using mountain beetle pine* reclaimed from our forests.
*About beetle pine: More than 4 million acres of pine trees across America’s Rocky mountains are dying from a beetle epidemic that has left of our forests a sea of dead and fallen trees – and seemingly waste. Yet the logs themselves are just as rigid as their healthy counterparts – begging the question, “Why use healthy trees with so many already fallen?”

Working with businesses and vendors who comply with environmentally conscious, sustainable practices is VERY important to me, so the next time you want to give someone a present involving photographs, I hope you’ll consider one of these environmentally friendly photo gifts!
Oh, and speaking of gifts … Mother’s Day is around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about what to get the Mom in your life. There’s no better gift than the gift of memories. Gift certificates for a custom photo shoot are available!
