At Not Just A Copy Shop we make it easy and economical to be “green”.
While all products at Not Just a Copy Shop are environmentally friendly, we also offer “Think Green, Print Green” products, which use the most environmentally friendly printing methods available. If our clients want to go the extra environmental mile, we are proud and happy to partner with them.
Not Just a Copy Shop offers a variety of printed products that are produced on 100% recycled paper using soy-based inks.
The Advantages of Soy Based Inks
Soy-based ink is, as the name suggests, made from soybeans. The oil is refined and mixed with other environmentally friendly compounds such as natural resins and waxes. The fine bright colors that can be produced with soy-based inks are a result of the soy oil – it is much clearer and less, well, “oily” than petroleum based inks. Soy ink is a frequent choice of newspapers and other mass-produced documents as it produces vivid colors, and can be more cost effective than its petroleum-based cousins.
Traditional petroleum-based inks can be environmentally hazardous, which is why many printing companies have made the switch to soy-based inks. That’s the good news. The great news is that soy-based inks do not mean reduced quality. In fact, soy-based inks are capable of producing more vibrant colors, and can help make any print media advertising campaign look outstanding.
The final result is an eco-friendly and visually appealing product that makes a statement about your business and demonstrates your concern for the environment. This is particularly true when soy-based inks are combined with recycled paper.
Why Use Recycled Paper?
Using recycled paper stock for your printed products can have significantly positive effects on the environment. According to KeepBanderaBeautiful.org, by using recycled paper, 60 percent of the water normally needed in paper manufacturing is saved. Manufacturing products from recycled paper reduces water pollution by 35 percent and air pollutants by 73 percent. Paper recycling also saves up to 70 percent of the energy needed to create paper from new timber.
Less energy consumption equals less air pollution and less mercury. Recycling also reduces the use of landfills, which keeps chemicals and gases from being produced and reduces disposal costs. Recycling any type of material conserves our natural resources, but paper in particular saves trees. Trees give us oxygen, prevent soil erosion and are home to a variety of wildlife. PaperRecycles.org reports that every ton of paper recycled saves more than 3.3 cubic yards of landfill space.
Recycled paper is not always the right choice for your printing, but when it is, it is also the right choice in maintaining the clean and beautiful Australia that we all love!
