Greenigo is a family-owned business, based in Melbourne, Victoria, run by the husband and wife team, Vivek and Priya. Born out of our shared passion for eco-friendly living and a deep appreciation for artistic craftsmanship, we are committed to delivering high-quality, unique products to our valued customers.
Whilst successful stationery brands developed products that were comprehensive, beautiful, and original in style, Vivek soon came to the realization that there was something fundamentally lacking across these paper products, a strong ‘ecofriendly’ element that promotes sustainability and yet is one-of-a kind!
It was at this point that he embarked on a long and extensive search for the ultimate material that was biodegradable, 100% sustainable, non-toxic, versatile, and ultimately performed better than traditional paper stock.
After dedicated research, and search for an alternative stock to paper, he discovered ‘Wood Veneer’, which are as thin as paper card stock, biodegradable and more importantly, the veneering process uses very less water and chemicals compared to the paper making process. Thus, Greenigo was brought to life, Australia's first & only Wood Stationery Brand!
Wood Veneers sourced by us are made from FSC Controlled Wood logs, use 50% less wood compared to paper equivalent (that's less chopping) and is a renewable resource known to humans for more than a millennium.
At Greenigo, we believe that every small step toward sustainability counts. That's why we are dedicated to offering eco-friendly products that make a big impact. Our products are not only designed to be visually stunning but also to minimize their environmental impact. We're proud to say that sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. From production of our wood veneers to packing the finished products to our loyal customers, we ensure very less wastage and avoid using unnecessary packaging materials.
Greenigo is committed to avoiding harmful chemicals in our production processes. We use eco-friendly adhesives and finishes to ensure that our products are safe for both users and the environment.
Greenigo recognizes that the Earth's natural resources are finite. By choosing wood as our primary material, we are committed to using a renewable resource. Trees can be replanted and harvested sustainably, making wood a responsible choice for stationery production.
Greenigo products are designed to be recyclable or biodegradable, minimizing their impact on landfills. We aim to create stationery items that don't contribute to the growing problem of non-biodegradable waste.
At Greenigo, we have long been committed to sustainability and creativity. In pursuit of this mission, the company has forged a unique partnership with Australian women artists. Greenigo has taken a unique approach by not only embracing the art of crafting wood-based stationery but also by placing a special emphasis on collaboration with Australian women artists. This collaboration embodies our dedication to fostering creativity, celebrating diversity, empowering women in business, supporting local talent, and maintaining environmental responsibility.
The fusion of Greenigo's commitment to craftsmanship and the artistic vision of Australian women artists results in the creation of unique, handcrafted stationery. Each product becomes a work of art, bearing the signature style and creativity of the collaborating artist. Customers are not just purchasing stationery; they are acquiring pieces of functional art that tell a story.
In addition, Australia is home to a rich tapestry of cultures and backgrounds, making it a treasure trove of artistic inspiration. By partnering with women artists from various ethnicities and backgrounds, Greenigo is able to celebrate this diversity and showcase the myriad of artistic influences that shape the country. This not only results in aesthetically captivating products but also sends a powerful message about the importance of inclusivity and representation in the arts.
When you choose Greenigo, you're not just purchasing a product; you're joining a movement towards a greener, more sustainable future. We promise to provide you with the highest quality, eco-friendly products that reflect our commitment to the environment and support talented women artists in Australia.
