PARTICIPATORY SPORT FOR CRAFT ARTISTS
With the summer art show season just around the corner, I know many of you will need stunning marketing pieces, postcards, business cards etc to help share your amazing work with the world. I just learned that Jakprints, an awesome printing company in Cleveland, OH, is planting one tree for every order they receive. 12,000 trees have been planted since January, how cool is that?---Michelle
We were excited about Earth Day and to celebrate here at Jakprints, we’ve officially unveiled our tree planting campaign. Since January, we’ve pledged to plant a tree for every order processed. That’s right, every order placed for apparel, stickers, full color printing and large format printing will have a tree planted. Be sure to check out our redesigned Green Printing site, we’re pretty proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish.
This is just the next step in our attempt to leave the planet better than we found it. We’ve always been mindful of the planet. Being green isn’t just a marketing angle for us, it’s an integral ingredient of the Jakprints culture.
Even in everyday life at our 130,000 square foot facility, environmental responsibility is practiced everywhere. In addition to vegetable-based offset inks and responsibly forested paper, all excess paper is recycled, there are compost bins in the kitchen and many of our staff ride their bikes to work. Since 2007, we’ve saved more than 29,000 trees; 5,700 cubic yards of landfill space; 11.9 million gallons of water; 7.1 million kilowatt hours of electricity; 621,000 gallons of fuel; and 102,000 pounds of pollution.
While these stats may seem impressive to the casual observer, the staff here at Jakprints is constantly researching new ways to fuel our passion for being environmental stewards.
Happy Earth Day Everyone!
