Environmental Focus

We only have one Earth.

As a company, we believe that we can make a difference by conserving and recycling the resources we use every day.  From recycling our print center’s trim waste to recycling the void fill that comes in the boxes we receive – it all matters.  Below is a pictorial representation of the fruit of our daily efforts (since we started keeping records in 2009) to lighten our businesses burden on the world’s resources.

What we do clearly does make a difference – and hopefully for generations to come!
