Earth needs us. Do you ever wonder how you can do more to help our planet? The choices that we make, how we live and serve, are all things that impact the environment. Artists tend to be hyper-aware of their carbon footprint, but we know that we all can do more. The real question is, how can we be more sensitive to the earth and her needs? How can we create a more environmentally responsible impact with the work that we do?
It starts with a choice. It may seem oversimplified but deciding to be more conscious of our impact on the world is where we all begin. It begins with the first step. Once you decide to create an impact, your next step is to find other artists and organizations to partner with. Community is where we can create waves of change instead of just ripples. Many non-profit organizations will help you use your artwork and your platform and allow you to help.
Organizations like Artists For A Green Planet and Create 4 Peace give artists the unique ability to come alongside artists from all across the globe. Each with their talent and their passion for how they want to create positive change in the world using their art platform. Once you have found a community to help, your next step is to determine just how much you want to give back.
Some artists donate a percentage of proceeds from their art sales to the non-profit of their choosing. This can be a beneficial way for you to create an impact not only with the money you will be able to donate, but many art consumers prefer to know that their money is having a positive impact on the world, not just on the aesthetic of their new room décor. You can also donate your work to non-profit auctions. This gives your chosen non-profit community a chance to do the work for you.
Make sure that if you choose to give back a portion of the profit that you mention on your website and that it is visible in any gallery listings, this lets your clients know they are helping the planet too!
