As many of us know, today is Earth Day. And while we try to spend most of our blog time highlighting the cool work and businesses of our customers, occasionally it is nice to see Printing for Less‘s hard work recognized.
WhatTheyThink, a website dedicated to identifying and supporting opportunities for today’s commercial printer, just announced their 3rd annual Environmental Innovation Awards. Here is a little info about the award from their site:
“…Part of our annual Earth Day celebration is our recognition of five printing companies that are expending a great deal of time, effort, and resources to make real and concrete contributions to improving their environmental sustainability. They’ve done the hard work, and we feel they should be recognized, not only to reward their efforts, but also to hold these companies up as role models for others in the industry to follow.”
We were very pleased to hear that we had won the following award:
Environmental Sustainability and Your Plant: PrintingForLess, Livingston, MT—Not only does PrintingForLess generate 100% of its power from a nearby wind farm, but their facility has been custom-designed to reduce energy and water consumption, as well as ensure the health and safety of its workers. They have dramatically reduced waste, and reinvested the cost savings from waste disposal to higher-cost wind power and other plant improvements. Their property also includes a preserved 25-acre wetland.
It is nice to be recognized for the work we do. And for any of our customers who are looking to branch out into sustainable printing practices, whether through recycled paper stocks or other methods, don’t hesitate to contact us. We are glad to help.
