When I was asked to review a piece of EcoArt from ThePackagingSite I thought to myself… oh cool, I can get another canvas… but I was wrong. An EcoArt might look like a canvas when you first see it from a distance but it is not… it is so much more.
So what is an EcoArt?
EcoArt products use environmentally friendly solutions; from the materials they used, the manufacturing processes down to the delivery of the final product.
The entire range of corrugated products is made using papers from either a recycled or sustainable source. Furthermore, all the products are manufactured in the UK, reducing the environmental impact of importing goods from around the world.
This is why throughout the entire EcoArt collection you will see the following symbols:
My EcoArt arrived securely packed in a large cardboard box. Inside, it was neatly wrapped in bubble wrap. The product reached me in perfect condition and I don’t see how it could get “broken” when using a substantial packaging method like this.
First thing which struck me after opening the box was a lack of smell. The canvas I had the pleasure to review before had an overwhelming paint smell once you finally got to it; EcoArt is fragrant free, which is a big plus as not everyone likes or even can stand a strong smell of paint.
Secondly it was unbelievable light. I could literally lift it with my one finger. At first I didn’t understand how this is possible… then I noticed the lack of a wooden frame. How cool is that? The whole product is made of paper! Again the fact that it is so lightweight is a huge plus. Imagine yourself getting a lovely family portrait for your Granny and she is not able to move it; with EcoArt this situation will not be a problem at all. I would say it is children and elderly friendly… at least when we talk about its weight.
And finally the quality… it is perfect:
Nice sharp colours, just like the original picture.
Lovely crisp white and perfectly finished back.
And perfect corners.
The cardboard frame has 4 openings in the back… this is where your picture hooks will go. With some pictures this might not be needed but I am sure we have all seen pictures which can or could be hung in different ways… EcoArt thought about this so you can just remove it from the wall, flip it or turn it and pop it back up… it really couldn’t be easier.
When ordering your EcoArt you have two options. You can pick one of the lovely pictures which they feature on their site; there is a selection of abstracts, animals, cityscapes, flowers, landscape and seascapes… or you can design your own EcoArt by creating it from one of your own pictures. Personalised EcoArt can be created as a square, rectangle or a panel frame, where you would split your photo into a few frames, which together will create the whole picture.
The prices start from £14.16 for a rectangle EcoArt with measurements of 30cmx20cm. Having in mind how environmental friendly this product is, I think that this is a great price.
So, what do you think?
Would you buy this environmental friendly EcoArt to decorate your walls?
If you are planning on getting one, you can use discount code: ECOTWENTY. This will take 20% off the price but it only applies to personalised canvases.
