Sustainability and the Environment

Through the years, we have been a leader in managing our business in a way that impacts the environment in a friendly, positive, and thoughtful manner. Long before others were talking about sustainability and paying attention to environmental issues, we implemented our Environmental Vision and Management Policy. With the state of the economy, however, it does cost us money to recycle these materials but we believe it is worth it. If you feel strongly about sustainability practices, please drop us quick email and let us know.

Here's How You Can Help:

  • Use recycled papers whenever possible.
  • A very important way that we urge our customers to partner with us in our environment 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.
  • Recycle your office ink cartridges. Send out large jobs to more efficient equipment which you'll find in a commercial print shop like ours. We use inks and toners that are recyclable.
  • We use chemicals and solvents that are almost 100% water soluble, bio-degradable, and recyclable. They are often more expensive, but we consider these products to be a wise investment.
  • Use CFL's in your home and office space. You'll reduce your KWH consumption by some 20%.
  • If you have suggestions about how we could further reduce our carbon footprint, please call or email us with your ideas. Or JOIN OUR MAILING LIST at LEFT for our newsletter which touches upon Environmental and Sustainability opportunities and business communications with a hint of a sense of humor. And check out how to get pickled supporting GoGreenStreets initiatives.
