Sustainability has been at the forefront of business in recent years, and many companies are looking for ways to become more eco-friendly.

Besides in-office recycling programs, or switching from paper and plastic to reusable materials, you can also go green with the way you print!

There are several ways you can increase the green printing solutions in your office:

  1. Responsible paper sourcing: Make sure that either your paper or other raw materials come from eco-friendly sources. Besides recycled fibers, coating, bleaching, and other variables all play into paper’s environmental impact. Evaluate other business practices from your suppliers like shipping with hybrid vehicles, encouraging employees to telecommute, or other “green” practices.
  2. Using soy and vegetable-based printer inks: Traditional inks are petroleum-based and have a number of negative environmental effects. Vegetable-based inks, usually made with soy, are more sustainable. They make recycling easier too, as they make de-inking easier.
  3. Overall energy efficiency: Use energy efficient machines whenever possible! From printers to office refrigerators, there are so many ways you can increase your “green” machines.
  4. Eliminated wasteful production practices: Stop over-printing by using technologies like on demand printing and variable data printing.

The biggest areas you can utilize sustainable printing processes are product (what’s actually being made), process (the means by which the product is created), and envelope (the surrounding materials and facilities, shipping, and employees).

If you’ve never evaluated how your company is moving forward with sustainability, there’s no time like the present!

I have worked with Michigan Computer Supplies for about two and a half years. They supply us with 5-10 toner cartridges each month for about 17 printers, of which some are large volume printers. We use both their refurbished and original manufactured toner depending on the device. I believe the refurbished cartridges work just as good as the originals. We also order Zebra printers and labels, Ethernet cables, bar code scanning devices and more. You name it. They have it. Occasionally we have also purchased printer devices and have had items repaired by them as well. I typically call once a week because we go through so much toner. When I call to let them know that we are getting low on supplies they are very efficient with their response time. Kyle delivers new toner by the next day and removes the old cartridges and recycles them. In addition, Jessica often mentions other cost saving measures such as quantity price breaks or recommends a compatible refurbished cartridge to save money. They try to give their customers the most bang for their buck! They are a great group of people to work with. They are very customer oriented and go above and beyond expectations. We recently had a specialized fax machine stop working that would cost $2,000 to replace. I spoke with Chris and he did some research and within 30 minutes called back with a suggestion of another device that would fit our needs for only $ 400.00! They really care about their customers.
