At Create CIC we are passionate about safeguarding the planet for future generations, however we are also aware of how energy intensive some of the processes we use are. We are working hard to mitigate this and make the Camborne Contemporary Crafts Hub as environmentally sustainable as possible.
What can we do?
We are working on plans to convert our beautiful Grade 2* listed building into a contemporary crafts hub. Our proposals involve minimal intervention in the fabric of the building, working with heritage consultants and Historic England to explore which green energy solutions are acceptable to integrate into this building, reusing and repairing wherever possible, and sourcing local materials and contractors. We are also starting to work with Exeter University to explore ways of capturing the heat produced by our kilns to reuse it to heat the building.
In the mean time we are doing everything we can to run our business as environmentally sustainably as possible; working from home and minimising travel, recycling, reusing and repurposing materials, furniture and equipment, using recycled paper towels and environmentally friendly cleaning products, and sourcing local products and services wherever possible.
