  • reuses plastic waste for packaging to eliminate the need for new packing materials;
  • recycles all ink, screen wash and chemical cleaners used in the printing process as well as all paper, cardboard, glass, plastic and metal waste generated; and
  • purchases supplies and equipment that contain fewer toxic constituents, use minimal packaging, offer leasing or take-back options, and other green options.
