Dedication to Greener Printing
At Allegra, we're keenly aware of our responsibility to help make the Earth a greener, cleaner place to live. Did you know that in
the U.S. and Canada we plant many more trees than we harvest each year—making paper and printing companies some of the most environmentally
responsible manufacturers. By working closely with eco-conscious customers like you, we have implemented the following practices at
Allegra of Lansing
- Recycling paper, cardboard and plate materials
- Turning off the lights, computers and 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
Did you know that in the U.S. and Canada we plant many more trees than we harvest each year—making paper and printing companies some
of the most environmentally responsible manufacturers. While the printing process can be resource intensive, but there are many additional
"green practices" we can and have incorporated into our daily work routines to help diminish the amount of waste that we generate.
Here are some methods we are currently implementing:
- Recycling Programs
Paper is one of the most recycled materials in the world today, with recovery rates of 65% and higher in North America. 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
- 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. Paper can be recycled up to seven times before it starts to break down. 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. Thanks to
consumers like you, the share of recovered paper in North America is expected to grow from 34.2% in 2014 to 39.3% in 2030.
