Azimuth Print, the online Eco-Friendly Printer
Let’s face it; eco-friendly printing is the way to go today. In spite of all the technological advancements and the promise of digital, paperless offices, printing services are still among the most sought after services. Even in this age of electronic communication and ubiquitous digital glory, mankind has not been able to fully shrug off the need for paper. Printing is still needed and our printing presses are keeping busy with a steady influx of orders everyday.
This is also an age where mankind has become more aware and responsible for his actions towards the environment. There is a conscious effort everywhere to go green, stop environmental pollution and save the planet we live in. This new heightened awareness has necessitated the need to take a fresh look into industries and commercial organisations, which have long been blamed, to varying extents, for polluting the environment and depleting the earth’s natural resources. We have also started to think how such harmful effects can be diminished and keep the planet green.
Like most production operations, printing houses also produce harmful wastes. Printing houses produce what are known as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), caused by the use of petroleum-based inks, laminates, varnishes and adhesives. Studies have shown that these compounds, when inhaled, greatly increase the risk of asthma attacks. As a result, we are taking measures to comply with existing regulations and adopt environment-friendly practices.
However, this is only half of what “eco-friendly printing services” are really all about. The issue of conservation is no less important than the need to stop polluting the environment. Eco-friendly printing is all about a successful merging of the two.
Azimuth Print, a certified eco-friendly printing company, keeps track of the total energy usage and implements strategies for offsetting the environmental impact of our business. Our goal is to be a “sustainable printer”, meaning the company is carefully planning operations to minimize electricity use, put a lighter drain on natural resources and source paper from companies certified to supply paper which is virtually synonymous with well-managed forests that adhere to strict environmental standards. It also means recycling and reusing paper and other supplies whenever possible. That’s what “green printing” is all about, and this constitutes the real essence of Azimuth Print, an eco-friendly printing company.
By choosing us for all your printing needs, you can show that you really care about our environment and act as responsible citizens of the planet. It’s always comforting to know that we’re doing our part to protect and conserve the environment. It’s also reassuring to know that our printing requirements will not endanger the earth by adding toxins and harmful pollutants, or by depleting natural resources. Everybody should insist on printing green. After all, we all owe it to the planet that we can call home in this vast universe. Sending all our printing jobs to Azimuth Print can go a long way in helping conserve the environment and ensure a greener tomorrow for our children.
Did you know all paper requires the edition of virgin fibre, even the most expensive recycled papers have some virgin fibre content. Fibres can be used on average six times before they become unusable.
Paper made from virgin fibre is entirely eco-friendly. It is important to remember that recycled paper requires the removal of ink, varnishes and solvents and then the disposal of them which has a negative impact on our environment.
- All of our products are printed using vegetable based inks.
- All of our waste paper is recycled and our used aluminium printing plates are also recycled.
