Creating our very own Cornish inspired, environmentally-friendly paint line has always been a dream of ours, ever since we first started painting furniture back in 2013.
In October 2019 after adopting our three beautiful children, we started to put the foundations together to create our family run business.
As new family, we started our bond exploring and teaching our children of our Cornish heritage, we traveled from fishing villages to different towns and with this we gained inspiration for Cornish Milk Mineral Paint.
Cornish Milk Mineral Paint is a very proud family run and operated Cornish business. Myself (Joe), Reece and our three children work hard to make sure we offer our paint users and customers the best environmentally-friendly mineral paints and preparation tools for their projects, transforming their homes without using harmful chemicals/toxins.
All of our mineral paints are made, poured and labelled by us, by hand, before being shipped to our stockists and customers all over the United Kingdom. We value the traditional way of paint making and as a company we have proudly reduced our C02 emissions by 75%, compared to a normal machine operated factory, manufacturing paints and pouring by hand. Yes, this traditional process takes us a little longer, but we love this process and as a family we work together.
We were the first paint line in the world to introduce biodegradable packaging and have always put the environment first, making sure our paint line is helping to protect the planet for generations to come.
Why do we need to raise money?
Like many small family owned businesses, we have been affected by the Covid-19 outbreak and now the increase pressures of rising costs of living.
We want to keep our family business open and our wonderful family of independent stockists around the UK open for business and making sure the UK has one of the best environmentally-friendly paints and tools around for many years to come.
Cornish Milk launched on the 10th January 2020, just before Covid-19 impacted our family businesses that following March 2020.
Sadly the impact for businesses such as ours is very real and with the raising costs, we are looking to raise money to be able to continue our journey.
We will also be donating a large portion of the money raised here to our current charity collaboration, raising money for ''The National Autistic Society'.
Cornish Milk Mineral Paint, teamed up with our fabulous stockist Jack at Jacked Junk, who is thirteen years old and has Autism. Cornish Milk and Jack are raising money for ''The National Autistic Society'' by launching two very special Limited Edition Shades, which Jack chose and named himself ''Seahorse and Coral''. So far we have raised over £400.00 towards this amazing charity and would like to raise even more!
Statistically only 16% of autistic adults in the UK are in full time employment. This has inspired Cornish Milk and Jack to raise awareness of autism and provide a better understanding in others.
How are we raising money?
In an effort to raise critical funds to help our family business, we have created this prize draw to give one very lucky winner a £500.00 credit to spend on all our Cornish Milk products from our official website shop - www.cornishmilkmineralpaint.co.uk.
You can use the £500.00 to purchase paint for you and your family to start your own exciting upcycling journey and make your home beautiful! We have 25 Cornish inspired shades to chose from, as well as environmentally-friendly preparation and decorating tools.
We are also raising money for ''The National Autistic Society'' by donating 10% off each Limited Edition Jacked Junk 250ml tin sold and to boost this charity collaboration, we will also be adding a large donation from the funds raised within this prize draw too!
