Here at SuperFunkyPenguin Photography we take our environmental and social responsibilities seriously.  We aspire to leave the world a better place that we found it.

Our key areas of focus are:

Environmental:

       – Minimising waste and eradicating single-use plastic

       – Reducing our carbon footprint

Social:

       – Supporting local businesses

       – Giving back to our community

What are we doing already?
  • Buying stationary and other office supplies from a small, family-run local retailer
  • Working with UK-based suppliers for prints, framing, business cards and flyers
  • Working with European-based supplier for our photo albums (currently our nearest supplier of superior quality albums)
  • Ensuring durability and longevity of prints and albums to reduce the need for reprints
  • Use of recyclable packaging for delivery of goods to clients (plastic is only used if it’s been provided by the supplier and is required to protect the goods)
  • Small print runs of business cards and flyers to reduce waste
  • Employing other small UK businesses and sole traders
  • Charging equipment batteries only when required (not leaving them permanently on charge)
  • Using rechargeable batteries rather than disposable for flash and other portable lighting equipment
  • Repurposing used paper and packaging for crafting with my children
  • Supporting local causes each year, with a percentage of work donated for free
What we are aspiring to change in the next 3 - 6 months: 
  • Adopt online invoicing and contract signing to reduce paper usage
  • Discuss packaging options with suppliers to encourage them to minimise the use of plastic and find more environmentally friendly alternatives
  • Providing sponsorship for selected local events
  • Conduct follow-up client meetings via video-conference where appropriate
Our longer-terms goals:
  • Provide a percentage of profits to supporting UK green charities
  • Hybrid or Electric car for business and personal use
  • Establish a mini apprenticeship scheme, and provide work experience opportunities and mentorship.

Although we’re a small business we can all do our part, and all make a difference. We hope that other small businesses will join us in the move towards sustainability. The responsibility lies with us all.
