Use it Again
When possible, reclaimed materials were used in studio construction.
The Powers of Bamboo
Our floor and most of our large equipment is made from Bamboo. Bamboo is classified as a woody perennial evergreen plant. Simply put, bamboo is a tree-like grass. It is extremely renewable because it is the fastest-growing woody plant in the world.
We also use towels containing Bamboo fabric to clean our equipment. Bamboo is grown without pesticides or herbicides. The plant has a natural defense when it is growing, an agent called Bamboo Kun, that wards off bacteria and fungus. Bamboo towels have that same anti-microbial and anti-fungal effect, which keeps them cleaner with less washing. Bamboo fabric wicks away moisture more efficiently than cotton, making it ideal for towels. At the end of their useful life, the cellulose fibers naturally decompose when exposed to sunlight. Bamboo towels can be composted.
Stainless steel was used in the manufacturing of all our large equipment. Stainless steel is naturally corrosion resistant, so there’s no need to use any chemical treatments (ie: chrome plating) to protect it.
We do our best to avoid using paper by sending and receiving information electronically whenever possible.
We have English Ivy plants hanging in our studio. Research has shown that this plant is one of the most effective in ridding the air of pollutants and toxins, and it contributes to balanced internal humidity.
