Is printing bad for the Environment?
Is printing bad for the environment? That's a question of real importance, both to you and us. It's important to our customers and prospects who are concerned about environmental issues, and it's important to us because printing provides our livelihood. The answer: NO.
We explore the prevailing thought about how printing affects the environment. In gathering our facts we used sources, such as the Forest Stewardship Council, that we believe are impartial. Our aim is to contribute meaningfully to the dialog on this topic.
You may be interested to know that consideration for the environment is not new to Express Printing & Graphics. We cooperate fully with local, state and federal agencies that regulate our industry. We have active permits where required, use a licensed disposal service for our used ink, chemistries and plate material, and voluntarily pay a company to annually audit our manufacturing processes for compliance with state and federal OSHA requirements.
We do this willingly and without reservation as our responsibility to you and to the environment.
