GEOGREEN

Responsibility feels good.
It also to looks incredible.

Being environmentally responsible with your printing is not about painful trade-offs anymore. As a company, we’ve fully embraced the mind-set of doing our part to use Earth-friendly materials as well as Earth Friendly recycling practices.

We WALK-THE WALK

100% of the process inks we use are vegetable based.

We only source paper from certified, sustainable suppliers.

Our modern equipment is designed and optimized for efficiency.

Last year we recycled over 240 tons of paper scrap material.

DID YOU KNOW?

Our forests are growing due to sustainable forestry practices In North America we grow many more trees than we harvest.

For example, the forest area in the U.S. increased by 14 million acres between 2007 and 2012. That’s the equivalent of 5,800 NFL football fields per day! During this time period the increase in the volume of trees on U.S. timberland could have filled 159 Empire State Buildings each year. In Canada, forest area remained stable over the last 2 decades at about 350 million ha; less than 0.5% of the resource is harvested annually and must be regenerated.

Paper production is not a main cause of forest loss (deforestation)

Worldwide by far the most significant cause of deforestation is the expansion of agriculture. In the U.S. deforestation means the permanent or long-term conversion of forest lands to other land uses due to urban expansion, industrial development, resource extraction or agricultural development. The main causes are development of cropland, pasture and urban areas (particularly the southern regions). In Canada it is the expansion of agriculture and the oil and gas industry.


Most trees don’t go into pulp and paper

In North America, the majority of wood fiber for papermaking comes from sawmill residues and recycled paper products. Only 36% of the U.S. roundwood harvest (trees) is used each year in manufacturing paper and paperboard. In Canada, 13% of the wood fiber to make paper comes from roundwood. The main product made from trees harvested in the U.S. and Canada is lumber. It is the sawmill chips (i.e. byproducts of the lumber process) that are a key raw material for pulp manufacture and eventually papermaking.
