We've all got our reasons for wanting to become more eco-conscious. What's yours?

“I not only want to be more eco-conscious, I believe it is a must. Before we didn’t have alternatives, but now, luckily some amazing entrepreneurs are creating and researching for alternatives. I believe is our duty with Earth to take part on it, and we should promote and support people who does it. If we can provide quality products without compromise health and safety is worth any extra penny, as at the end we all are making profit without thinking what is the real cost long term. We are heading a non return path and we have to act now, every single step counts. I cannot be more excited with the project of Green House Tattoo Supplies."

"I have been a vegetarian and animal lover my entire life and became vegan around a year ago. I'm currently an apprentice and I love tattooing, but the amount of plastic waste we create in the industry is not acceptable. I've been hoping to find some more eco friendly materials but until now haven't had a lot of luck. The environment is very important to me and inspires so much of my art so I am so excited to be able to create that art without contributing to the plastic problem!"

"When I was 14, I chose not to get my driver's license so that I may have less of a carbon footprint. 24 years later, I'm a first year tattoo artist, and make the joke that I saved up my waste quota for this trade. I love tattooing, and I am acutely aware of the need to manage health and safety for myself and my clients, all the while feeling sadness at the waste I am producing. Tattooing is my life, and if I can help reduce the negative impact on our world, and continue to live my passion, then the joy and satisfaction that comes from that is indescribable. Thank you for your time and efforts."

"I have been vegan for 17 years, and own a fully vegan studio, using renewable energy, eco cleaning products and biodegradable plastic alternatives where possible. I’m excited to see a company who intend to replace many of the remaining problematic elements of ethical tattooing."

"It’s a no brainer! The less mess we can make the better it is for everybody! I think tattooing and piercing is and has been quite a wasteful industry. Anything we can do to make it have less of an impact on the environment is a must. It’s rad to see a company grab that challenge by the neck and I can’t wait to see what greenhouse tattoo supplies comes up with!"

"Anything I can do to better the planet! I already recycle all of my non contaminated plastic supplies, so really excited to hear about this! Tattoo supplies produce soooooo much plastics from disposables."
@stefflapsleytattoos // Glasgow, UK
"I hate what we as humans are doing to this planet. I’m an avid recycler and I really try not to waste and consume less products in plastic but I know I can do more. My studio is disposal only which means a lot of plastic packaging. I’m interested to see what eco friendly products you have to offer and hopefully st an affordable price too."
@josephmorleytattooflash // Chelmsford, UK
"I care about the environment, and any changes people can make to reduce damage to our planet can only be positive. Most of my designs are animal related. Animals and tattooing are my passion. So I should really do all I can to sustain a future for both of them."

"I’m always open to innovative alternatives, especially when they are environmentally conscious! I believe in doing the best you possibly can while you’re on this green earth, and taking that correct path to a better life for all... and these supplies show the right step in that direction. I’m wicked excited to try these products in the near future!"
