Green Printing

Helping Make the Earth Greener

At Allegra, we're keenly aware of our responsibility to help make the Earth a greener, cleaner place to live. We're also aware of what we need to do to reduce our ecological footprint. By working closely with eco-conscious customers like you, we have implemented the following practices:

      • Recycling paper, cardboard and plate materials
      • Turning off the lights, computers and other equipment when not in use
      • Reusing boxes before sending them off for recycling
      • Increasing the use of recyclable materials wherever possible
      • Reducing toxins and waste
      • Decreasing emissions and energy consumption
      • Developing waste prevention and reduction processes

A greener world is everyone's responsibility. By working together to minimize our environmental impact, we can make our corner of it a little bit cleaner.


Thinking Green. Printing Smarter.

The printing process can be resource intensive, but there are many "green practices" we can incorporate into our daily work routines to help diminish the amount of waste that we generate. Here are some methods we are currently using:

Recycling Programs:
From paper to ink to money and everything in between, recycling saves. Period. It also reduces air pollution and landfill waste. And that's a good thing.


Controlling Waste:
Being a control freak has its advantages. By establishing inventory controls, we reduce waste and save cash. Sequencing print jobs by ink color saves in changes and labor while eliminating waste.


Using Resources Wisely:
Incorporating recycled papers - with high levels of post-consumer content - into your communications projects helps keep a lot of paper out of landfills. Using paper from responsibly or scientifically managed forests goes even further in reducing the damage to our world's natural resources.


Choosing "Smart" Inks:
Using vegetable or soy-based inks means less toxins and VOCs (volatile organic compounds) are released into the air and soil. Avoiding inks containing heavy metals, like lead, cadmium and mercury, is also better for the environment.


Educating Consumers:
By helping you understand the nature of "green" printing, you're really helping us produce a "greener" product for you.
