SUSTAINABILITY + WEXEL ART

Wexel Art strives to be environmentally conscious in every facet of our business: the way we run our offices, develop products, work with our factories, and support organizations that make a difference. We partner with The Sustainable Furnishings Council and CleanHub to minimize our carbon footprint.

PLASTIC NEUTRAL

Wexel Art has partnered with CleanHub, an organization dedicated to preserving the oceans. They will collect 700 pounds of ocean-bound plastic on our behalf annually. That amount matches the amount of waste we produce, neutralizing the waste created. The plastic waste collected gets sorted into recyclables and non-recyclables to be co-processed.

REPURPOSE, REUSE, RECYCLE

Wexel Art repurposes leftover material into smaller size frames, ornaments, color rings, and remnants that artists can reuse for art. When we receive damaged returns, Wexel Art cuts them down to reuse the non-scratched components. We donate gently used frames to schools and non-profits. Our frames are made of 100% recyclable PMMA, which can be reprocessed at dedicated plastic recycling facilities. It's melted and extruded into new items, creating closed-loop supply chains and building a circular economy.

0% REMNANT WASTE

In the picture framing industry, there is an incredible amount of waste: frames only fit one size art image, mat boards and moulding have extensive remnants. In an industry where scrap materials are wasted, Wexel Art prides itself on reusing and repurposing scrap materials. 0% framing waste (no matboard trimmings, no glass scraps, no backing trimmings, no wooden/metal frame trimmings).

OUR PRODUCTS ARE SUSTAINABLE

Acrylic frames have a longer life than traditional frames and are infinitely reusable. Our canvases have stretcher bars made from FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) Certified Wood. All hardware included with frames are made from recyclable aluminum, and all packaging materials are recyclable.
