Celebrate Earth Day Every Day April 22, 2022 Edge OneAbout Precision Educational Information Sustainability No Comments Since 1970, Earth Day has served as a global time to reflect on the beauty and health of our planet as well as how we can better protect it from ourselves. While Earth Day is celebrated on April 22nd each year, we strive to protect our environment daily. Beginning in January 2004, we took a giant step forward by becoming the first Reprographic Company in our marketplace to offer exclusively recycled stock in both large and small format document reproduction. Currently, other than specialty color graphics media, all paper products used in our process carry a minimum of 35% post-consumer recycled content. Additionally, we strive to recycle 100% of our waste products and have contracted with Weyerhaeuser to appropriately destroy and recycle all paper waste products. By doing so we are not only protecting your intellectual property that appears on these documents but are returning this unused precious resource to a manufacturer that can give new life to this otherwise wasted product. In essence, we are recycling our recycled products; including outdated bid sets and preliminary printings that we pick up from clients’ locations to add to our recycling bins. Beyond the recycling of waste products created from our printing process we also aggressively recycle our office waste by encouraging our staff to use either recyclable or reusable products whenever possible. We also encourage our staff to walk, bike, or use public transportation when commuting to and from the office. We are committed to protecting our environment, yet we give careful thought and perform extensive tests to ensure that the recycled products we utilize will produce a quality and acceptable product for our client base. This year for Earth Day, we encourage you to find ways to make every day Earth Day. Commit to making one small change today that you can maintain for a lifetime. This could be recycling more often, starting a compost bin, picking up litter, or buying sustainable goods. Making small habit changes may seem insignificant, but this is our only home – let’s make it last.
