At PracticalPrinters.ie, we are committed to making sustainable choices in our operations as a commercial print service provider and we understand the importance of the printed products we produce and their role in our customers’ businesses. We also recognize our responsibility to minimise our environmental impact and contribute positively to society. This Sustainability Policy outlines our commitment to sustainability and our efforts to prioritise sustainability sourced papers, inks, and consumables.
Our Commitment to Sustainability:
Sustainable Sourcing: We are dedicated to using sustainably sourced materials in our production processes. EVERY paper product that enters are premises is certified by organisations like the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC). These materials come from responsibly managed forests, ensuring the longevity of our natural resources. As general rule, for every 1 tree felled, 2 trees are planted.
Reducing Waste: PracticalPrinters.ie is proud to say that we recycle four times as much waste as we send to the landfill. Our commitment to reducing waste includes minimising off-cuts, reusing materials and packaging when possible, and recycling materials that cannot be used further. We encourage our customers to choose designs and quantities that reduce waste during the printing process and to re-use all packaging associated with their orders.
Energy Efficiency: We are mindful of our energy consumption and deliberately keep the footprint of our premises small. This practice allows our average yearly energy consumption to be not much larger than that of a standard 3-bedroom house. We invest in energy-efficient equipment and technologies, which reduces our carbon footprint and helps protect the environment.
If you are concerned about any aspect of your Print-work please be sure to ask us for tips and advice on how best to reduce any environmental impact your order may have.
