For the series Good Folk on this blog I have sent interview questions to some really wonderful people who are either making things, running shops, or generally promoting sustainability. I think you will enjoy reading their answers as much as I have, and I hope they inspire us all with the knowledge that there are people doing good in the world!
This interview is with designer maker Kerry Hatch from Hello Stud, expert in handcrafted eco-resin jewellery. Kerry is based in London and started Hello Stud in 2018. Here she shares with us her views on sustainability and bio resin.
How/has working sustainably impacted your non-business life?
Do you have any advice for people trying to shop more ethically?
Making small changes like buying loose veg, supporting environmentally conscious businesses, spending more on an item which will last, shopping local and just trying to buy less stuff!
Everything you do matters, regardless of how small. Educate yourself on the facts, increase your awareness of the issues and start by making small changes that will soon become second nature.
What is the most challenging thing about the materials that you work with?
Can you recommend any other makers or businesses that work in an ethical or sustainable way?
