    Sustainable printing tips for business owners

    Are you aware of the impact your business has on the environment? If not, now’s the time to find out! How environmentally-friendly you are when it comes to using energy, removing waste, and even getting to and from work has a big impact on your local community and the planet. From sustainable printing to eco-friendly office supplies, there are plenty of smart tips that can help you take ownership of your environmental impact.

    Practice green procurement

    One of the easiest ways to make your business more eco-friendly is to practice green procurement processes. Choose services and goods, like sustainable paper and eco-friendly inks, that don’t contain toxic substances or are harmful to the environment. Try to make sure these products are recyclable and also made from renewable materials. Putting in a little extra research to find out where your suppliers source the products from can really reduce your business’s environmental footprint.

    Eco-friendly postage

    Most business communications may be made via email these days, but that doesn’t mean postage is obsolete. Many businesses still deal with high volumes of postage, and whether sent by land, air, or sea, packages can cause a lot of pollution around the globe. There are however ways you can reduce the impact your shipping freight has on the environment.

    First of all, you can choose recycled content, such as sustainable paper, for the envelopes. You can also keep an eye out for paper and card products that meet the Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) certifications. Eco-friendly filling material like corrugated inserts can also be used to fill parcels.

    Sustainable printing

    There are many practical ways you can make your printing more sustainable. Ensure employees print on both sides of the paper to cut down on your carbon footprint as well as reducing paper costs and potential wastage.

    Expanding your margins, too, can mean that you cut down on the amount of paper required to print documents. A simple change of the margin settings on the processor your staff uses is the simplest way to do this.

    You can also ask employees to really question whether they need to print at all. Sometimes documents can be read on the screen just as easily, or notes can be written by hand on a piece of recycled paper. Changing printing habits is the first step to creating a more sustainable business that doesn’t have a negative impact on the environment.

    Here at Hague, we have an Environmental Management System (EMS) in place, which means we ensure clear audible production processes can be demonstrated. This means we are able to reduce waste through careful management and processes that are regularly reviewed.

    Let us handle your sustainable printing for you. We can help you to reduce your printing waste and print products that will impress without the environmental impact.
