How We're Trying to Save Our Planet
Through the years, we have been dedicated stewards to our environment by managing our business in a in a friendly, positive, and thoughtful manner. Long before others were paying attention to environmental issues, we implemented the following Environmental Vision and Management Policy:
- Virtually 100% of our paper purchases are FSC Certified. The FSC's mission is to promote environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable management of the world's forests. They ensure that our paper comes from responsible sources.
- We recycle all of our plastics & aluminium, use biodegradable inks and toners, & recycled papers whenever possible.
- We use biodegradable inks and toners that are recyclable.
- We use chemicals and solvents that are almost 100% water soluble, biodegradable, and recyclable. They are often more expensive, but we consider these products to be a wise investment.
- A very important way we urge our customers to partner with us in our environmental efforts is by using our digital/Internet ordering, proofing, and reordering system. Use of our digital ordering system enables all of us to save substantial amounts of gasoline and other raw materials.
- If you have suggestions about other ways we could further limit our environmental impact, please call us with your ideas.
