We Don't Just Love to Paint Trees...
Owners of Splash Painting and Wine, Kelley and Adriana, are passionate about offering our art entertainment service, which fulfills a social and creative need, while minimizing our environmental impact as much as possible. We'd like to share some of the ways we're accomplishing this because we know that protecting our earth's resources and living well responsibly is important to you too. Please be inspired to make a small change towards this goal within your own organization or family. And if you have any suggestions for green improvements we can make, please contact us.
Recycle your canvases!
So you love all of your Splash made artwork, but maybe you don't want to hang every single painting on your wall. Bring us your old canvas to recycle at your next party. We will let you keep the painting, while recycling the wooden frame to make new, recycled canvases. We will use the recycled canvases at our future parties. If you happen to get a recycled canvas at a party, the only difference you may notice is that the quality is even better than the brand new canvases since we are able to buy higher quality material in large rolls.
Reclaimed Wood Easels and Paint Caddies
All of our table easels and paint caddies were built from scratch by us in our wood shop from reclaimed wood. This is wood that we scavenged from piles of waste lumber destined for the landfill.
Biodegradable Bagasse Paint Palettes
Our paint palettes are made from natural unbleached bagasse and wheat straw. Bagasse is the fiber leftover from sugar production after the sugar has been pressed out of the cane. It is normally burned for fuel or goes to waste. Wheat straw is also an agricultural waste product. Using this "trash" in our paint palettes reduces demand on trees for paper. Even better, it biodegrades 100% in just 90 days!
Reusable Cotton Drop Cloths
Instead of cheap disposable bleached white butcher paper to protect tables from paint, we use cotton drop cloths, which are reused and washed as needed.
Water Jars: Upcycled Glass Food Jars
Instead of buying something new for each guest to rinse their brushes in, like a plastic tumbler, we've decided we love the weight, cleanliness, and good upcycled karma of glass food jars.
