We are using soy-oil based inks instead of traditional petroleum-based ink. Also known as
vegetable-oil ink, soy ink is a great advancement in the print industry. Soy ink is a safe
and environmentally friendly ink because of its simple compound compared to petroleum–
based ink. Using a simple process to make the ink, it consumes very little energy and
makes it very efficient. Soy ink has many great advantages; one is its distinguishable
clearness which allows for brighter colored ink, which petroleum-based ink do not allow
because of its darker content. Thus soy inks are popular for their vibrant colors. Soy ink
can also be easily removed from paper, which is helpful in paper recycling, as it is quicker
to process the paper.
As the print industry evolves, soy ink becomes an increasingly popular alternative.
Using unique Aqueous and UV coatings, we have shifted yet another critical step in
producing environmentally friendly print products. The coatings which consist of very low
to zero traces of volatile organic compounds (VOC) reduce harmful components that
damage the atmosphere and the surrounding environments. Impregnated washing
systems are used for press rollers and blankets which consist of minute traces of VOCs.
Fountain solutions are free of or use reduced VOC solutions. We on the constant lookout
for safer and more environmentally friendly press room products, recycles all solutions
and removes hazardous waste from their facilities, preventing it from getting into the
natural environment. Our production facilities are all alcohol-free environments using only
alcohol substitutes as well. Continued development in press room products assures only
the safest solutions will be used in our facilities.
An essential ingredient in the print industry is paper. We utilize paper that is produced
specifically for paper-making and is not produced from illegally deforested trees.
consumed. Some of our promotional products are made with materials such as bamboo,
Bamboo is the fastest-growing plant on Earth. It has been clocked surging skyward as
fast as 121 cm (47.6 inches) in a 24-hour period.
Bamboo is environmentally friendly & a quickly replenishing resource. In addition to
bamboo’s many uses as a product material, the plant in its natural living state generates
more oxygen than a similar size grove of trees. A small stand of bamboo can reduce the
temperature in its immediate environment by as much as ten degrees.
Bamboo is proving to be one of the most significant and versatile natural resources
available. Its rapid growth rate makes it a prime textile and materials crop for a wide
variety of products. Compare a bamboo forest to a hardwood forest – the bamboo will
mature in 4 to 8 years, whereas hardwood takes 40 to 100 years to mature.
Unlike regular plastic which is made from petroleum, corn plastic comes from corn resin
(also known as polylactic acid or PLA.) This new plastic doubles its eco-friendly impact by
reducing our dependence on oil while lessening pollution produced during its
Cotton is a renewable resource, making cotton totes a great option to replace paper and
• Post-consumer and Previously Used material comes directly from products such as used
• Post-manufacturing material comes from scrap raw material left over from producing
another product. This product would otherwise be thrown away. Recycling plastic saves
70% of the energy used to create new plastic. Paper recycling saves 40% of the energy
required to make a new product.
Save a Tree!
Products using 100% post-consumer recycled paper are made entirely from recycled
materials, ensuring that no trees were cut down to make them. If less than 100%
postconsumer recycled paper was used in a product's creation, the remaining percentage
was drawn from virgin trees.
Recycling is good for the environment in two ways:
it reduces the inputs (energy and raw materials) to produce new products and it reduces
the amount of waste produced for disposal.
The impact of plastic shopping bags that we use once and then toss is overwhelming:
• The average family of 4 accumulates 1460 plastic shopping bags a year.
• It can take up to 1000 years for a plastic bag to break down in the environment.
Reusable recyclable bags are perfect for grocery shopping, carrying personal items, or
as a bag to use at home. Made from non-woven Polypropylene or PP, these bags are
tough and long lasting, can be reused many times over, and are completely recyclable.
Use alternative, non-harmful resources such as hand-power, solar energy, and water
to replace or to prolong battery life. Some of electronic products we offer provide
renewable energy from these easily available resources to produce electrical current for
use as a power source.
We offer products that replace or prolong the life of your batteries by using solar energy.
Solar energy converts sunlight into electrical energy through solar (photo voltaic) cells,
producing electrical energy for use as a power source. Solar power is renewable energy
from an undepletable source.
such as dynamo power. A dynamo, also referred to as a hand-crank or wind-up, uses
electromagnetic principles to convert movement into electrical current for use as a power
source. Dynamo power is an undepletable resource.
When you're using rechargeable alternative energy, you're using an energy source that
is not contributing to global warming or is slowly depleting our natural resources. See our
line of green promotional products.
It’s all about waste reduction. Reusable items instead of disposable everyday items go a
long way in reducing waste. Paper bags for your lunch may be convenient, but they waste
precious resources. Instead, reuse or refill items you’d otherwise buy new and then
discard each time.
The most commonly used methods for waste disposal (landfill, pyrolysis, incineration) are
environmentally damaging and unsustainable. Reduce your environmental impact by
The growing national consumption of single-serving water bottles made from raw
materials is an unnecessary waste of resources. Even though such water bottles can be
recycled, only a small percentage of water bottles are actually being recycled. We offer
reusable water bottles and aluminum sport flasks from an ecological point of view
because they are durable and can be used over and over.
