We have designed and are now producing our own packaging on site. This change affects every single tube, bottle, jar and cap, in all sizes, for all lines. Our new packaging uses less materials and is far more efficient on every level possible.
Tri-Art makes its raw materials purchases in North America as much as possible. In some cases this is a more expensive decision, but one that we feel is necessary.
One of the most extensive initiatives Tri-Art has implemented is our water filtration system. The production of acrylic paint requires a significant quantity of water and also produces a large amount of wastewater (grey water) with the clean up. We have developed a process to reuse and recycle our grey water for the cleaning of our equipment.
Hemp is selected not only because it is an ecologically friendly material, but also because the fibres have antifungal and antibacterial properties which creates a naturally more mold resistant product than can be obtained from solely cotton fibres. As well hemp fibres are stronger and will breakdown less easily than cotton fibres, leading to a longer lasting product.
