Blick's Commitment to Being Green

Go Green

Blick's Commitment to Being Green

Back in 2001, with energy prices near record lows, we revamped our new distribution center in Galesburg, Illinois, to make it as energy-efficient as possible. Experienced heating and ventilation contractors thought we were crazy to spend the money, pointing out that the payback would take years, even if the unproven technology we used worked.


Today, Blick’s distribution center uses only 10 percent of the energy normally required to heat and cool a structure of its size. This helps us keep our costs low so we can pass the savings on to you — and it helps our planet!

We’re also committed to offering you art materials that are environmentally friendly because of the way they’re formulated, manufactured, or packaged. These products are listed below by product category for your convenience, and they prominently display a bright green, "earth-friendly" tag in our catalogs.


In the coming months, we’ll also be incorporating the green theme into our store displays. In the meantime, you have our promise that we’ll continue to source even more green products and offer them to you at the best prices — online, in our catalogs, and in our stores.
