At Liquitex, we believe in the power of artistic expression. That’s why we’re on a journey to create a better world where artists and communities can thrive: a world that gives back more than it takes, and that generates social and environmental value.
Liquitex is proud to continue its sustainability journey with the introduction of our sustainability commitment, A Positive Mark, and the launch of our first sustainable product, Recycled Canvas.
Our new Recycled Canvas is made with 100% recycled plastic bottles fastened to FSC certified wood. Suitable for both acrylic and oil paints, this high-quality surface has been tested by professional artists and within our lab so you can create with confidence while reducing your impact on the environment.
We want to do whatever we can to create a world that’s full of possibilities for future generations of artists to thrive. That’s why we’ve partnered with Waste2Wear – pioneers in solutions for innovative plastic recycling, using blockchain technology to deliver 100% traceable and sustainable textiles.
As a part of our sustainability program, A Positive Mark, we’re committed to innovative sustainability solutions that retain product quality and performance. Carrying a SUSTAIN label, Recycled Canvas is the first in a new Liquitex category. We plan to launch more products within our Professional range and continue integrating sustainability practices across our business.
