eframe.jpgIn this digital age we can find that all of our photographs end up on our computers and not being displayed the way that they would traditionally have been. Obviously, digital photography has meant that we don’t print out all of our dud photographs anymore and that’s good for the environment, but there are some photographs that still deserve pride of place in our homes, pieces of art, or mementoes of loved ones and special occasions.

e-photoframes supply sustainable, ethically sourced and fair traded photo frames with a unique “one frame one tree” guarantee. For each frame that you buy, they will plant a tree in partnership with the Forest Restoration Research Unit and Plant a Tree Today. The full cost of the tree planting is covered by the mark-up on the frame. The costs of planting are kept to a minimum by the partner organisations working with volunteers and the tree planting projects being based in developing countries where saplings and seedlings are relatively inexpensive.

There are three different types of frame to choose from at e-photoframes. The Wood frames are created from plantation cut rubber trees with an expertly finished natural grain pattern; The Mulberry range is hand crafted from Mulberry bark by a fair trade co-operative in northern Thailand; and the Silk frames are crafted from high-quality Thai silk and packaged in a reusable mulberry paper box. All frames are available in 6”x 4” and 7”x 5” sizes with prices from £7.95.

These frames make great gift purchases for ethical and environment conscious consumers who want to give gifts that will not only be appreciated by the recipient but also cause minimum harm to the environment. These photo frames are a gift that will last for years while also making a genuine contribution to forest restoration.
