Yes, I just said the “P” word — Paper. I have no use for it. I still don’t have my printer hooked up and have no intentions of doing so. Eco-Office Gals has no letterhead, no business cards, no paper contracts, we won’t do any job where the end result is paper – it’s just that simple.
However, what options are available if you do have to print? Using recycled materials, FSC certified paper, or tree free paper is always a good direction. Eco-Office Gals has found a few companies out there that have taking the steps necessary to provide you with the most eco-friendly paper solutions.
- Printing for less: This company provides business cards, brochures, catalogs and stationery for your business needs. However, their paper is FSC certified, and they use vegetable based inks. It doesn’t stop there either, they’re wind powered, the building is carpet-free, they use open architecture, natural lighting, and have 25 acres of preserved wetland on their property.
