PAINTER AND ENVIRONMENT
Can the environment and the fine arts be compatible? A question that many artists ask themselves, at least I dare hope.
Despite my research on the various sites of paint manufacturers, it is really very difficult to get answers. After thoroughly searching their sites, I learned that the Golden brand does not test its finished products on animals, which is already important (for me anyway, but not enough). However, they warn us that basically all the ingredients have already been tested on animals by external laboratories before they are put on the market. After all, some shades are nevertheless composed of animal materials, a list specifying which.
When I started doing my research, I contacted the Géant des Beaux-Arts to find out what their ecological and/or vegan brands are. They said they were going to find out, and after a little over a month of waiting, we can finally get some more information on their site. And I admit that I am very happy so we can now discover which brand respects the environment a little, for example those whose products do not contain heavy metals such as Amsterdam — Pébéo, those whose bottles can be recycled for Amsterdam for example.
Of course, we would like to know even more, we would like the brands to be more involved to offer us quality products that are not harmful to our health and the environment. We must therefore fight together to ask them for transparency in the composition and manufacture of their products.
I am therefore looking for information from the various paint brands
A next article will share the contact mail with its brands, which everyone can use so that we are a maximum to ask them transparency on the composition of the paintings, on manufacturing methods and their environmental commitments. I think the more we ask for it, the more the brands will care.
