    • Adventa's Greener Environment

      Adventa is committed to reducing our environmental impact and continually improving our environmental performance as an integral part of our business strategy and operating methods. With the focus of the environment and climate change in the news we understand it is our corporate responsibility to put measures in place to help reduce our negative impact.

      There are 3 key areas we have focused on:

      Products and Packaging
      - Striving to reduce the volume of waste per completed product. For example, our retail packed bauble has gone from 36 pieces of plastic to none in the space of one year! To do this we are currently researching ways of using alternative types of protective packaging and endeavour to use FSC certified card and paper wherever possible. For example, we have now switched to using FSC recycled void fill paper in boxes. We are also striving to achieve FSC chain of custody for 2020/2021
      - Working with suppliers to ensure materials are ethically sourced, and environmentally friendly wherever possible as well as looking for alternative companies, closer to the UK to source some of our materials to help significantly reduce our carbon footprint.
      - Investing in research on plastic alternatives and recyclable plastic for future developments. As well as investigating the environmental impact of our products. For example, the QuickPro Canvas, one of our best-selling products, use 90% recycled content:


      - Reuse/regrind 100% of all the manufacturing waste made from our injection moulds meaning there is no left over waste!
      - Also, to ensure nothing is left in landfills or waste we ensure all discontinued products are donated to charity for re-sell

      - Aiming to reduce the kWh of electricity used per square meter within our factory and offices through efficient use of machinery and motion sensitive LED lights
      - Reducing the amount of energy, we are using by helping to generate energy! Our new state-of-the-art warehouse roof features solar panels to help counteract our energy usage!

      Office Supplies
      - As a business we are establishing a new recycling scheme where all paper and all recyclable material in the office will be recycled through the internal paper recycling scheme

      - Installed a cardboard baling machine in the factory to ensure all card and paper waste of the business is disposed of correctly

      Although some of these elements are still work in progress and are having further investigation, Adventa is determined to find a greener approach where possible while also providing high quality products.

      If you have any questions regarding our progress please feel free to email us on [email protected]

    • Vision Wall Makes an Impact in Support of Local Artist

      Vision Wall Makes an Impact in Support of Local Artist

      During February, the Adventa, acrylic poster frame – the Vision Wall, will be creating an artistic impression at a local exhibition being held at the Newtown Library in Powys, Mid-Wales.

      The exhibition features a collection of pictures from a local, and very talented artist, Rosie Robinson, who sadly recently passed away.

      We are delighted to have supported the exhibition with a range of our picture frames to highlight Rosie’s wonderful paintings in a professional and impactful way comments John Morrish, Sales & Marketing Director. 

      These poster frames are the latest concept for large, modern wall art. Contemporary & stylish, these wallVision mountable acrylic frames stand out from the wall and allow prints and art to be displayed in a frame without a border.

      Growing up in upper Trefnant Maesmawr with her three brothers, Rosie attended three schools Cyfronydd school, followed on by Robert Owen, in Newtown and then she went on to attend Leighton base in Forden. It was in Leighton base, working with staff and community artist Ingrid Maugham that she produced the pictures you see in her exhibition today.

      Rosie had a learning disability but throughout her life she enjoyed many things such as cooking, dancing, holidays, pop music, drawing and most of all butterflies. In Rosies eyes the world was pink as that was her favourite colour. Everything had to be pink!

      Most of the pictures in the exhibition are from the period 1990 and 2010 when she worked with a community artist called Ingrid Maugham. Ingrid helped her to express herself through art and how to build colour and tone

      Critical Acclaim

      The paintings and drawing of Rosemary “Rosie” Robinson are remarkable for the richness and subtleties of the experience they relate. Each line, each circle, each group of people is carefully and pleasingly considered.

      To call Rosie’s work naïve or primitive is to miss the point. Her art derives from a carefully observed life. The visual vocabulary she uses is both consistent and surprising. These aren’t arbitrary images thrown together in a spare moment. They are the work of someone in control of their language. The language she employs may be different from that used by a traditionally schooled artist, but the work produced is no less insightful. They tell a distinct and welcome story.

      These are paintings about place, family, work, play; about life. Finally, they are what good art aspires to be, a unique vision of a unique life.

      Rosie was a very special and unique person. Everybody she met fell in love with her because of her wonderful personality. On November 24th 2016 Rosie passed away peacefully aged 58.

      The fantastic collection is available to view in the Newtown Library for the whole of February so if you’re in the area we highly recommend a visit. The collection will also be visible in Theatre Hafren during June and July also.

      VisionThe pictures can be purchased through the family, with any money raised going to local charity projects. The remaining pictures will be offered to community hospitals and day centres around Powys.

      This exhibition highlights how the right frame can really complement a finished piece of art. If you are interested in the Vision Wall range please click here for further information or contact our Sales Representatives on 01686 625100.
