Role and Impact of Eco-Friendly Printing Companies
Printing companies are in a dilemma today with the growing calls of environmentalists to save the earth through green measures. Printing can be quite destructive to the environment as the process involves a lot of heavy machineries and ink which draw on a lot of energy and resources. It is not surprising to have printing companies resort to cheaper resources which may use chemical options that are detrimental to the environment.
Hence, eco-friendly measures must be considered to reduce the carbon footprint of printing companies.
Green printers must be innovative and creative in their printing procedures without over-emphasizing on profits. Such corporate social responsibility consciousness would be a good example to other industry players to emulate in greening the earth; in the long run, every party benefits.
There are various types of printing methods which may use different types of materials and resources. Offset printing is commonly employed printing technique with the inked image transferred from plate to blanket. The ink used can be vegetable ink instead of chemical ink; the former is gentle to the environment which should be strongly encouraged.
The lithographic process uses oil and water which can be eco-friendly if natural oil is used and not synthetic oil. A lot of ink, oil and water are used in any printing process which can create a lot of waste products that are detrimental to the environment. Hence, it is preferred that green options of resources are considered by printing companies to reduce the amount of unnecessary and harmful waste products to the earth.
It is possible to maintain the high quality outcome or image desired with eco-friendly printing approaches. There is no need to compromise on quality or profit with green measures adopted on printing. If more printers and other industries adopt eco-friendly measures, there would be a higher demand to research and source out more impactful green resources to any process. This would bring the cost of materials and resources down and profits can go up; to the delight of the businesses.
Just like today, solar energy is widely available with the sun as the primary source that is free. Yet, not many businesses are harnessing this free energy but prefer to use the more expensive grid services. Besides greening the earth, eco-friendly printing can cut down expenses over the long run as solar energy can be used to power the heavy presses. There is little maintenance and no tax imposed.
