Making a Difference with Printing

Below, you will see what happened when we ordered our shelf talkers and sell sheets from a green printer (using recycled paper, vegetable-based inks, etc.) instead of a traditional printing company! 

0.33 trees preserved for the future
0.96 lbs of water-borne waste not created
141.91 lbs of wastewater flow saved
15.73 lbs of solid waste not generated
30.9 lbs of greenhouse gases prevented
236,633.54 BTUs of energy not consumed

Every little bit helps.  :)
