I’m happy to announce that Rebecca Wilkowski Photography has been selected to be a member of Greener Photography (www.GreenerPhotography.org). Greener Photography is a place for the photographic community to consider the environment; learn to conserve and better preserve our resources and images; and connect by sharing suppliers, ideas, and methods. Together we can learn how each of us can be more green, advocate for change within our field, and provide a place for informed discussion about how we can make photography greener.
Photography is an art form that allows each of us to interpret the world around us. The nature of our tools and traditional materials makes photography a high-tech field; it is an energy-intensive activity. We believe that we can make our high-tech field more green by implementing environmentally-friendly practices, and encouraging suppliers to do the same. Here are Greener Photography’s four core values:
Preservation - Preservation conserves all of the resources that go into creating photographic images. It is the single best thing we can do to reduce the impact of our photographs.
Reduction - Reduce, Re-use, Recycle. While we are trying to produce the most archival products in our industry, we will do so while using the least energy-intensive products available.
Local Production - Shipping and transport are some of the biggest sources of pollution. Anything that can be produced, manufactured and assembled locally will have a significantly lower environmental impact than components manufactured overseas.
CrueltyFree - Animals and people are as much part of the eco-system as water, air, and trees. We do not see a difference between environmentally harmful products and those produced in harmful working conditions.
Greener Photography Pledge - We believe that we have a responsibility to protect the environment. As members of Greener Photography, we are committed to environmentally-friendly practices and to encouraging change within our industry. Within our own businesses and in doing business with others, we are committed to these objectives:
• to comply with all applicable environmental regulations and to strive to exceed compliance
• to conserve energy, water, and other natural resources
• to develop and implement practices that prevent pollution and waste
• to offer products to our clients that are environmentally-friendly, conservation quality, locally-made and/or cruelty-free
• to be a source for change within our industry by encouraging other photographic businesses to be environmentally responsible
