When it comes to printing, a lot of people think that using so much paper is bad for the environment, so it becomes the jobs of the printers and print brokers of the world to educate their customers on the best environmentally friendly papers to use and how to aid in helping the environment.

But what a lot of people do not take into consideration when printing, is that inks used to be made out of products that were bad for the environment, so when paper was thrown into the garbage the inks were what was causing harm to the environment, as opposed to just the idea of cutting down too many trees without replacing them.

Now, most inks are made from vegetables or soy. That means the inks are natural ingredients, that when they are put back into the earth, they do not cause harm to the natural environment.

So it is important to recognize how you can continue to help the environment.
