Why go Green?

The Environmental Printing Company firmly believes that you, the planet, and your business can benefit from printing green.

Here are just some of the reasons why:

The average office worker uses 0.68 kilograms of paper per day, that’s 170 kilograms per year! You can make a HUGE difference just by changing the type of paper you use.
By switching to recycled or sugar cane paper, your business could save hundreds, maybe even thousands of trees.

The paper making process is a toxic one, and it produces a lot of waste. A medium-sized print shop uses about 20 tons of paper each month, which produces:

  • 554 kilograms of waterborne waste

  • 680,741 litres of wastewater

  • 9,025 kilograms of solid waste

  • 17,770 kilograms of greenhouse gases

  • 299,880 BTUs of energy

At The Environmental Printing Company:

  • We use environmentally friendly products such as vegetable-based inks, recycled paper, and sugar cane paper.

  • We recycle ALL of our waste paper and by-products.

  • We use 40% less toner than conventional printers and ALL of our digital components are recyclable.

  • We use environmentally friendly cleaning products on our machines with very low VOC levels.

By switching to green printing you can eliminate a lot of waste from the printing process.
