  • 6 Ways Printers Can Contribute to a Greener Planet

    Environment, Communication Design

    1. Use 100% recycled paper.

    Brands of recycled paper just keep increasing every week. And printing on recycled paper is one of the easiest ways printers can help keep the planet green. Astrolite PC 100 is the cleanest and smoothest 100% recycled paper available. It’s certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), which means it’s made of only 100% post-consumer recycled fiber.

    Paper certified by the FSC and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) means that responsible forestry practices have been followed. Only 10% of the world’s forests are certified by these organizations, meaning any printer that is certified by either group or that uses certified paper has gone to extraordinary lengths to protect the environment.

    Other 100% recycled paper brands include Genesis, Synergy, ENVIRONMENT papers and Save-A-Tree.

    2. Use paper that was not bleached with chlorine.

    In the old days in the U.S., paper was given its bright white color by bleaching it with chlorine. This bleaching process released cancer-causing dioxin into the atmosphere and into the Earth’s waterways. Now the Environmental Protection Agency has required that most paper be elemental chlorine free, or ECF, which means paper must be bleached from chlorine derivatives, such as chlorine dioxide. This significantly reduces dioxin pollution, but doesn’t completely eliminate it.

    Printers can also choose process chlorine free papers (PCF) that have been bleached with oxygen-based compounds that don’...

  • World changer needed




    I’m looking for:

    Somebody who wants to change the world with web design.

    Somebody that believes access to the web and technology can create an even playing surface and give previously unheard people, and unheard stories a voice. And can give people living in poverty a way to make a living.

    An optimist.

    A partner in crime.

    Somebody with big ideas.

    An adventurer.

    A dreamer.

    Somebody who loves travelling, and experiencing different cultures and people.

    Somebody who’s passionate about world issues, and isn’t profit centred.

    Preferably somebody who will compliment my design/ front end/ basic PHP skill set; so perhaps somebody a bit more techy… a database developer, somebody who’s good with computer networks etc.

    Somebody who currently has a source of income, so maybe a freelancer like myself, as the exciting ideas I have need months of development and won’t allow us to live off of them until the end of the year.

    I’m UK based at the moment, this isn’t a requirement, as long as you’re prepared to get up and go.
