Who are we?

Elena Drew This is run by me, Elena, after graduating from Brighton University in 2020.
After studying Textile Print and Graphic Design, I felt a need to do more to help the climate crisis, whilst also utilising my design skill.

So I started Elena Drew This - creating a design brand whose products raise awareness of the current climate crisis - aiming to encourage thought and discussion around sustainability and what we can all do to help.
Taking often complex research and simplifying it into eye-catching graphics and designs, the main brand aim is to be informative and educational, without being preachy or greenwashing.
I believe if more people are made aware of the climate issues we face, the more positive action that will happen.

Sustainability is at the absolute core of what I do, with all products being made in the UK with 100% recycled, recyclable or biodegradable materials and packaging, and having 1 tree planted for every order.

What do we sell?

My first range of products is a collection of greetings cards, all with an environmental-based design on the front, and a brief explanation of the design on the back of the card. All cards are left blank inside for your own message.

I am currently developing wrapping paper and art-prints all with the same climate message - watch this space!

Alongside product and print creation, I also do freelance work for charities, social enterprises, or sustainable businesses - helping them to raise awareness of their cause, or to gain traction on a campaign.

Why we are Ethicul?

The designs themselves raise awareness of the climate crisis, and encourage discussion and thought around what we can do to help with sustainability and climate change. They are educational, informative, and accessible.

As well as the design being educational, all of the products are designed and produced in the UK, being printed onto 100% recycled and recyclable material.
All the packaging is also UK produced, and if it's not recyclable, its biodegradable (potato-starch film bags are used for the cards!)

One tree is also planted for every order, and the business is 'climate positive', with all of the businesses carbon being offset via Ecologi.
