Smartpress.com Places Emphasis on Green Printing, Reduces Environmental Footprint as a Digital Printer
CHASKA, Minn. (September 6, 2012) – Smartpress.com announces today the company is placing new emphasis in reducing its environmental footprint and continuing to become ecologically conscious through several initiatives, including providing a digital printing advantage, being efficient and non-toxic, recycling, using energy-saving and eco-friendly materials, becoming 100% Replanted through a partnership with Trees, Water, & People, offering Forest Stewardship Council of the United States (FSC) certified paper and an eco-friendly matte paper stock which boasts 50% recycled content.
“We are taking our initiative to exercise environmental responsibility to the next level by finding new and important ways to reduce our environmental footprint,” says Chuck Reese, president, Smartpress.com.
With digital printing plates do not need to be created. Because there is no plate, there is no by-product waste from creating a plate or the waste of the plate itself. Smartpress.com is efficient and non-toxic, using the newest, most efficient digital printing presses that use environmentally superior dry inks. Not only does the company offer eco-friendly stock, but Smartpress.com only uses papers that are FSC certified. The FSC is a certification body that provides verification for paper and wood products to certify that the products have been sourced in an environmentally friendly and socially responsible manner.
Smartpress.com makes every effort to conserve in the office and production areas by recycling. Programmable thermostats can be found throughout the building and the company makes every effort to conserve on energy. All incandescent bulbs have been replaced with high-efficiency compact fluorescent bulbs. Solar shades are used on all windows.
Smartpress.com also calculated the amount of paper used monthly in pounds and converted it into how many seedlings needed to be planted to make it even using Trees, Water & People’s online calculator. Smartpress.com has made the commitment to become 100% Replanted by planting five seedlings per tree used each month to ensure success.
