Reduce Your Carbon Footprint with Sustainable Printing Practices
As an Ann Arbor-based business, you might double take when you hear us tell you, "go green!"
No, we don't mean that Green! As we head into spring, we're thinking about more ways we can help our planet by reducing waste and upping our efficiency, and we want to help you do the same!
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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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).
We love to support our fellow small businesses in Ann Arbor. We can help you come up with more efficient printing processes and help streamline your practices with delivery and regularly scheduled printer maintenance.
