“I remember seeing Connie Chung state on national TV that 60% of the landfill problems were due to paper and printing waste and then the following day, Earth Day, I saw middle school and high school students celebrating Earth Day.

I was sold. I decided to merge my paper and printing business into focusing on an environmentally mindful process.”

An integral part of EcoFriendly Printer, is our Business Development Manager, Jonathan Cooper. Jonathan has been with us since 2014 and has industry experience in green printing going back to 2007. This picture if from the Go Green Expo at the Javits Center in NYC 2014.

We are constantly moving with the times and using eco based certified materials as they become available in the marketplace to achieve our goals. This is demonstrated in the evolution of paper that we offer. We first started promoting 100% post-consumer waste (paper made from paper), then moved onto chlorine free paper (which avoids producing dioxins, a deadly toxic chemical when mixed with other chemicals it can cause cancer) and now offer Tree Free Paper made from materials such as hemp, denim, sugar cane, bamboo, coffee, banana, mango, lemon. And 100% PCW (2nd generation tree free).

As with materials, we also stay current on the demands of technology. We moved into digital printing as an additional print medium since digital is the most cost effective and qualified process for the short run high quality jobs we run.
