Going green is more important now than ever. The faster we can reduce our carbon footprint, the quicker we can allow our planet to heal. There are many misconceptions about the printing industry regarding paper manufacturing and environmental responsibility. While transitioning to more sustainable business practices takes time, eco-friendly printing is an excellent way to start. Eco-friendly printing is something everyone, including companies, can do right away to get stunning eco-friendly prints while saving the planet in the process. At TEAM Concept Printing, we take sustainability seriously.
Soy inks and recycled paper are two examples of how we are going green. Soybeans grow abundantly in many of the Illinois farm fields not far from our headquarters about 30 miles west of Chicago. For more than 25 years soy-based inks have been a sustainable alternative with rich, accurate color. These affordable non-petroleum-based inks are a win-win for people and our planet. That is why we are eager to use soy-based inks and recycled paper whenever possible, offering our customers a sustainable solution without compromising our commitment to quality.
In addition to these green practices, TEAM has recently partnered with the Sustainable Green Printing Partnership. SGP is a non-profit organization that certifies printing facilities’ sustainability best practices, including and beyond regulatory compliance. SGP advocates best practices and innovation among print community stakeholders, aligning the printing industry and its customers in the pursuit of a more accountable sustainable supply chain. Certification elevates a printer into an elite group of top sustainable printers, recognized by both print buyers and the printing industry.
