Mimeo.com is as passionate about protecting the earth as we are about the quality of our printing. We continually strive to make responsible choices that will help sustain and preserve our land, trees and sky.
Paper Offered includes SFI and FSC® certified stocks from North American Forests
As a printing company, paper is our most important resource. We only use paper that is sourced from North American forests, and many of our suppliers are either Green Seal Certified, FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®) or SFI (Sustainable Forestry Initiative) certified. This certification provides assurance of social and environmental responsibility through the manufacturing process.
Mimeo's paper meets these standards:
Recycled Content: 100% recycled paper is available for both color and black & white printing. Mimeo's color paper used in black & white printing has 30% post-consumer content, and we offer a wide variety of optional paper that meets EPA recycling guidelines.
How digital printing supports the environment
- Reduced paper waste: print only what you need
- Higher returns on fewer pieces: leverage variable data capabilities
- Reduced make-ready and change-over waste
When compared to other printing options, Mimeo.com is an environmentally friendly solution. By submitting documents from your desktop and using our online proofing tool, customers avoid multiple trips to printing facilities and the wasted paper that comes from mistakes and overstocks.
Also, because we're located next to two major shipping hubs, our shipments travel shorter distances, reducing the amount of energy needed to deliver an order by 50%.
Environmental audits at our Facilities:
Our facilities are continually audited for energy consumption, toxins, chemicals, materials, supply chain, and employee practices. In fact our Newark print facility was built with materials from the building it replaced.
Digital Color Presses
Our Color Presses are designed to lessen their environmental impact. Many recycled materials are used in manufacturing, and the mainframes, accessories and replacements parts are designed to be remanufactured or recycled.
The presses run with virtually no emissions, do not use or generate any harmful compounds, require no hazardous waste removal, and consume a low amount of energy.
