Just a little bit about Peg Creations...
Our Ethos : Peg Creations is an ethical, Eco-friendly and sustainable small independent business.
Nicola first established the whole concept of Peg Creations after many months of over thinking she wasn't good enough to begin the journey of creating a life style that incorporates creativity and Environmentally-Friendly values. Starting the first steps, she quickly developed products and the confidence to build a thriving small business.
Being a green business is very important to Peg Creations. We feel we have an increasing responsibility to be environmentally friendly and reduce our business’ carbon footprint by changing the way we work. Global warming is the long-term rise in the average temperature of the Earth's climate system. It is a major aspect of climate change and has been demonstrated by direct temperature measurements and by measurements of various effects of the warming. Glaciers have shrunk, ice on rivers and lakes is breaking up earlier, plant and animal ranges have shifted and trees are flowering sooner. Effects that scientists had predicted in the past would result from global climate change are now occurring: loss of sea ice, accelerated sea level rise and longer, more intense heat waves. Human activities contribute to climate change by causing changes in Earth’s atmosphere, there are so many ways in which we can lower the level of this.
As a small business we feel we have a big responsibility to try and reduce our carbon foot print to as low as possible. We are achieving this by many aspects of the way we run our business. Examples of this are such things like changing the way we create individual items and changing materials to more sustainable options, changing all of our marketing and packaging material to recycled materials and by also promoting Eco living and identify ways to be more sustainable in every day life. We stock companies that support the environment and we are particularly proud of the number of other small UK family businesses that we stock. Everything on the site features some or all of the following: recycled/able material, made using non toxic paints, chemical free, handmade, organic and made using sustainable manufacturing. As well as being earth efficient, another aspect of our business that we feel very strongly about is being creativity.
Nicola provides a wide range of workshops that incorporates engagement, creativity and awareness of being able to see an activity in a different light, as in you can do all these activities but changing to more sustainable methods and materials! Over the last year she has delivered a wide range of workshops for groups to over 1000 participants a day. We have been lucky enough to work along side company's such as Stockton Borough Council, Northshire, MIND, Vorkspower and many more.
