At Book Printing UK, we try to be as sustainable as possible. We understand that the printing industry comes with a lot of waste. Thankfully, we care about the environment and aim to do what we can to reduce our impact.
We make the effort to recycle 100% of the paper that is left after each print job. On top of this, we try to eliminate the use of paper wherever possible and the majority of our admin is handled digitally. We also have around 20 recycling bins (the size of the ones at your house) dotted around our building to make sure that we are recycling any paper that we do have to use in-house.
After our paper is put into the recycling bin it is sent off to a paper mill to be processed and re-used in other paper products. As we recycle printing paper (highest grade) it can be recycled a total of 7 times before a new process is used.
In the recent weeks we have also removed shrink wrapping from being a standard addition to orders. Single use plastics like that are a major concern for environment, so we have changed our policy to ensure we cut down on them.
