At Lick HQ, we’re pretty obsessed with all things decor and design. We want to make it as easy and effortless as possible for you to transform your space. But we’re also super passionate about being kind to the environment. So we thought we’d combine our two passions by bringing you products that even the most eco-conscious decorator would choose to use.

As part of our efforts to be more sustainable, we’ve replaced some of our essential painting and wallpapering tools with a new and improved range that’s been manufactured to the highest environmental standards.

All our new decorating supplies are made of sustainably sourced bamboo and sugarcane, so they’re all either compostable, biodegradable, reusable, or recyclable. Oh, and at Lick HQ, we have a zero-tolerance policy on single-use plastics.

Wanna know more? Read on to find out more about our new eco-friendly LickPro tools.

Say hello to our eco-friendly paint brushes 

Produced in Europe, our new paint brushes are made of sustainably farmed bamboo, recycled natural bristle, and recycled metal. 

A little ode to bamboo from us: we chose to use bamboo as it grows a couple of feet every day and is never cut to the root, meaning no deforestation. And it makes the air cleaner too, producing 35% more oxygen than alternative materials and absorbing more carbon dioxide.

Meet our new and improved paint rollers

Onto our new rollers. Also made using bamboo, our paint rollers are made with a recycled metal frame, recycled plastic core, and recycled polyester roller. And, although we really want you to keep reusing them for as long as you need, they’re 100% recyclable for when you’re done with them.

Introducing our sugarcane pulp paint trays 

Ever heard of a paint tray that’s won awards? Ours has, twice. Say hello to our award-winning new sugarcane paint tray. Our organic sugarcane paint tray is sourced from a collective in Thailand. They train local farmers to cultivate crops sustainably, creating seed banks for future generations.

Biodegradable, compostable, and recyclable, you won’t even have to wash this tray when you're finished using it. Just dry and repeat.
