Growing Greener – Our Pledge to the Environment
Posted on 10/15/2010
Harris LithoGraphics began as a prepress shop in 1975 and has evolved into a full service printing company that offers brochures, books, newsletters, letterheads, envelopes, business cards, saddle stitched books, pamphlets, direct mail pieces, and more.
Every project at Harris is produced in the greenest, most environmentally friendly atmosphere possible. We believe that a commitment to green isn’t enough – actions, not words, make the difference in our environment.
That’s why Harris LithoGraphics uses only vegetable based inks instead of petroleum based products, which can have a negative impact on the environment. In addition, we our print runs are tightly scheduled, which reduces the amount of ink used.
Besides the vegetable based inks, Harris LithoGraphics runs our daily operations, from turning on the coffee machine at the home office to running our presses, on energy that is derived from wind power.
Our commitment to the environment is nothing new, we were the first printer in the entire United States to receive chain-of-custody certification from the Forest Stewardship Council for our operations in 2003.
FSC certification ensures you that the paper we use has been made from wood harvested from well-managed forests.
At Harris, we feel that committing to the environment today ensures that there’s a tomorrow for everyone.
