In today’s time, where the world is full of commodities and yet it continues with production of the more and newer commodities each day. In the process of doing so, people often tend to neglect the how the manufacturing as well as waste originated from the process has a direct negative impact on the environment. One of the important contributors inthis process is through printing and how it degrades the environment. Print process is used in labelling as well as packaging of the product.
There are many key environmental issues that are caused due to print, starting from the excessive wastage of the resources be it paper or plastics and energy (like electricity) as well as the mishandling and disposing of hazardous material used in the process.
Today we are enlightened with the fact that the harm we directly or indirectly cause to the environment, does not only degrades just the environment it is actually the danger we are bringing ourselves closer to. Being known to this very crucial fact, many of us are trying to make conscious efforts towards living a greener lifestyle. Using the present resources inconservative way with optimum usage as well astaking right measures to reuse these resources in multiple ways in everyday life makes a real and positive impact on the environmental conditions.
At the print industry, the question has been laid and to redeem themselves, both individuals and businesses have found ways to act upon the environmental issues is through incorporating sustainable measures in printing process, also called as “green printing” measures.
Here are some sustainable printing practices that can be adopted in printing process for “GREEN” printing decisions.
Cut-back / lesser wastage of paper
The most common wastage at this industry is of paper. We need to make sure that we make careful decision about the usage of paper. We need to understand that wastage of paper leads to demand for more paper which ultimately leads to deforestation. Also, the additionalpollution emerges from paper creation.
Use recycled paper
As cutting back on paper waste can be a great way to help the environment and so can be re-using the once used paper. In modern times recycling of paper is a common phenomenon, and to use this recycled paper in creation something new is a difficult approach but one which needs to be followed for lesser paper wastage.
Lesser carbon footprints
In the print industry both individuals and businesses are incorporating sustainable measures with the help of technological advances like the use of UV printing etc. which allows the print suppliers to produce materials without the quality being compromised and at the same time optimising the use of energy to the fullest.
Eco-friendly inks and materials which are easier at their handle and disposal.
The printing ink is toxic for humans and goes same way for the environment, as the components of ink like heavy metals, petroleum oil and non-biodegradable plastic degrades the environment.
Ethical printing machinery
The kind of printer used in printing impacts the environment by consuming a lot of energy. Using energy efficient printing machinery is necessary and also emphasis should be made on its disposal after use. It should be wisely treatedunlike common waste.
