Uncovered Artistry's Commitment to the Environment

We at Uncovered Artistry also care greatly about preserving the environment. To do our part we chose environmentally-friendly business practices. For instance, Uncovered Artistry's packaging is made from recycled materials. With the help of volunteers, we create handmade gift tags, bookmarks, and mailers from re-purposed greeting cards, fabric, and sewing patterns.

Some of Uncovered Artistry's boutique products are made from recycled or sustainable materials.

Palm Wax Pillar Candles by Dolly Rocker Candles

A Word from the Artist: Palm wax burns cleaner than traditional waxes. Emitting almost no soot, it is a healthier alternative to paraffin. It is natural and vegan, like soy, but palm wax is harder and burns longer. The palm wax can also hold more fragrance oil and has a stronger scent throw, so you can better enjoy the fantastic smell.

Palm wax is 100% natural and sustainable, harvested according to the guidelines set by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil to prevent deforestation.

Reusable Advent Calendars by Sweet Petunias

A Word from the Artist: "I've made these calendars to last for your family's enjoyment for years to come. The last thing we need is more mass produced advent calendars going into landfills after this holiday season. I believe that this will become a lasting part of your family’s holiday tradition.”

Handmade Up-cycled Bookmarks created by volunteers

The bookmarks were crafted from recycled materials, including vintage sewing pattern packages, vintage buttons, and left over ribbon

Handmade Gift Wrap created by volunteers

We use recycled or reused materials for our gift wrap. Each gift box or bag is accompanied by a gift tag made from repurposed vintage cards.
