Bristol independent Illustrate speaks out on climate debatePosted on: 07 Oct 2019
In a recent blog post, Illustrate has expressed their support for Greta Thunberg.
The post says that environmental activist “is an example to all leaders, of countries and of companies, in an age of bluster.”
As well as expressing support for Greta’s activism, the post argues that climate neutrality by 2050 is “simply far too generous a time period” for minimising the effects of climate change.
“Change must be swift as well as systematic-” the post reads, “the positives of personal lifestyle change are not to be diminished.”

What is Illustrate?
Illustrate is a collective of artists and creatives working to produce sustainable art and products.
The company has two shops in Bristol, on Park Street and inside The Arcade. Each location showcases and sells the collective’s creations; including artwork, clothing and accessories.
The collective operates with a distinctive style, creating artwork which aims to reflect the beauty of wildlife and nature through intricate illustrations.
Abiding by a set of environmental commitments, the team creates products using recycled materials and sustainable, low-carbon production methods.
While Illustrate’s greeting cards, note and sketchbook are made from 100% recycled material, 10% of each water bottle sale goes to Frank Water. The collective also plans to operate a plastic-free supply chain by 2020.
