The print media industry has a responsibility to lessen its environmental impact. Fortunately, rapidly developing green technology allows publishers to use renewable resources, limit greenhouse emissions and eliminate steps of the publishing process altogether.

We at SustainPrint believe that sustaining our world is vital to our future. Our goal is to provide print businesses the resources they need to "green" their printing and publishing processes. We also aim to educate those searching for large-quantity printing services; choose a publisher with environmental credentials to make the world a better place.

About SustainPrint

The production of paper has always had a profound impact on the environment. According to the Environmental Paper Network (EPN), making responsible choices about paper use and selection is one of the most significant actions one can take towards preserving the environment.

Regrettably, the paper industry has been the third largest industrial energy consumer in the world. The emission of greenhouse gases during traditional paper production is off the charts. Another growing concern is the loss of native forests and diversity as well as water pollution.

At this point, we can't afford to turn our backs on responsible paper production any longer.

Your Choices Matter

Our goal here at SustainPrint is to inform business owners and industry members how to protect the environment when dealing with print media. While many will argue that the only true sustainable printing option is the shift to web-based and digital media, we at SustainPrint believe that there is still a place for printed pieces.

Below are some ways to IMMEDIATELY make your business greener:

  • Working with printers within 100 miles reduces the transportation footprint and also helps support the local economy.
  • Purchasing carbon offset credits will help support projects that reduce the emission of greenhouse gases.
  • Formatting projects to maximize the press sheet size will greatly reduce the amount of paper waste.
  • Instead of using paper fiber, look into using some of the 200 million tons worth of straw bi-products from agricultural crops.
  • Refrain from applying paper coatings that might render the paper unrecyclable. These can also add toxic sludge in the recycling process.
