June 2019 Papergang Review


Look at me! I’m actually posting about my Papergang box IN THE MONTH I RECIEVED IT!

Papergang is run by a UK based independent company, Ohh Deer, that focuses on sustainability. All the packaging is recyclable and for every 4 boxes sold 1 tree will be planted in association with the charity TreeAid. I’m definitely behind this!

Every month you receive exclusive stationery and desk accessories designed in collaboration with different artists. June’s box featured work by Jack Carter and it’s in collaboration with the Marine Conservation Society – for every box sold £1 is donated to the charity.

Our oceans are under serious threat, not only from climate change but also from overfishing, lack of protection and single use plastic! MCS has been working on cleaning up the UK beaches, and more, for over 25 years. I think this is incredibly important, alongside committing to reducing carbon dioxide emissions to slow climate change – the ocean is vital for many things other than just a food source…

The subscription costs £10.95 with £2.95 postage, or you can prepay for 3, 6 or 12 months. With the monthly subscription you can cancel whenever you like or skip a month.

This month we received:

  • A5 Perfect Bound Notebook: £8.95
  • Enamel Pin: £5.95
  • Stickers: £1.00
  • A5 Art Print: £9.00
  • 2 x Metal Straws: £5.50

Total value: £30.40!

First of all, the artwork is SO cute! Secondly, the narwhal pin is just too adorable and it has joined the rest of my pins on my work bag. Finally, I received 3 straws, not 2, and I know a lot of other people did too! Maybe it was a typo? I already own 6 metal straws, but as these come in a handy little bag they’ll be my bag straws that I carry around with me.

I absolutely love the “There is no planet B’ artwork. It’s hanging on my wall, along with my ‘conscious shopping list’ from January’s box.

I couldn’t wait to do nail art for this month’s box and it turned out SO GOOD. If I do say so myself. The little ocean characters are very cute and worked so well.

My friend pointed out that the starfish looked angry (the eyebrows turned out a little heavy) but he has every right to be, we’re destroying his home!

I used Floss Gloss in Moon Baby and acrylic paint to create this design.
