Green is a harbinger of Spring, so it’s only fitting that Earth Day falls during this season. At Allen Press, we strive to be green all year long. A commitment to sustainability and reducing our carbon footprint has long been a part of our company’s mission in operating responsibly. Here are three ways we help our customers print sustainably every day. 1. FSC-Certified Paper: Customers can choose Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified paper. FSC-certified paper promotes an environmentally managed and sustainability focused supply chain. 2. PrintReleaf Partnership: Allen Press is proud to be a PrintReleaf partner. PrintReleaf offers customers the option to offset paper usage with re-forestation support. 3. Recycling: Did you know Allen Press is one of the largest recyclers in Lawrence, Kansas? We recycle 100% of byproducts like paper, aluminum printing plates and corrugated cardboard.
