Creative Litho has added a new mailing permit from the Post Office! (07/14/09)
Here at Creative Litho we are doing our part to keep our environment clean and green. A few
things we have done to help conserve energy can also be done in your home or office. One of
the easiest things to do is to power down at the end of the day. By turning off and unplugging
all unused appliances can reduce energy cost dramatically. This includes items such as phone chargers.
With a charger plugged in and no phone charging it still draws an electric current.
Switching to flourescent lights as we have done also reduce the amount of wasted energy
in a home or office. To further highlight a decrease in your energy bills adjust your
thermostat accordingly, no need to heat or cool your home or office when no one is present.
Recycling and reusing in your home or office is a great way to save and help the environment
and it doesn’t require a lot of work. One tip for reusing office paper is uses both sides in your faxes
and printers before recycling it. Also many companies offer toner cartridge refill or recycle
programs. Always check with your suppliers for programs and look for the recycle logo before you
purchase. Recycling your paper also helps to keep our cost down. With the high demand for
trees for lumber and paper, the price of paper may continue to rise if we only rely on trees.
By recycling your paper we can carry paper is made of up to 30% post consumer material.
Most papers we currently stock is SFI certified and or FSC certified. The Sustainable Forestry
Initiative and the Forest Stewardship Council work together with manufacturers to ensure
a long standing relationship between the forest and the consumer through conservation
and renewable resourcing. Reusing cardboard boxes and plastic bags before recycling
is an excellent way to save money , reduce deforestation and land fills.
In the press room we have upgraded our printing presses to run without harmful chemicals
that worked well with older technology. Having chemicals with a low VOC (volatile organic compuond)
allows our press operators to breathe easier and ruduces the amount of unseen harmful gasses in our
atmosphere.. Most commercial printing ink is petrolium based, while this is the most widely accepted and used ink, we also carry acrylic and soy based inks.
