Values & Ethics
Explore Our Values
We borrow the earth from our children, let's work together to protect it.
A drop of water becomes the ocean, and we are all swimming together.
Practising gratitude, helping others and being kind to each other and ourselves.
We do not inherit the earth from those that came before, we borrow it from those who follow.
Wanting to reduce my impact on the planet, was forged from a young age, I think watching my mum iron the Christmas wrapping paper and knowing how my dad riveted his sandals rather than discarding them, as well as helping him to fold Green Party leaflets as a child, probably helped! Before I even opened the door to The Gallery, I was looking into how I can minimise earth impact in setting up and running my business, from compost toilets to using up-cycled materials to fit out the interior, although I was restricted from using compost toilets, it got me thinking about what businesses can do to help reduce their impact. So I decided to do the best I could to do my bit, in the process setting a standard that other businesses can (and have) follow.
The Gallery is Ireland's first member of the ‘KISS THE GROUND’ network, a global movement of regenerative farming. As a result of erosion over the past 40 years, 30% of the world’s arable land has become unproductive. About 60% of the soil that is washed away ends up in rivers, streams and lakes, increasing the risks of flooding and intensifying water contamination from fertilizers and pesticide runoff. Sustainable land use can help to reduce the impacts of agriculture and livestock, preventing soil degradation and erosion and the loss of valuable land to desertification.
