At SunDance, we have always been committed to maintaining our environmental sustainability. We recognize the responsibility we have to the planet and strive to ensure we are low-impact throughout the entire designing and printing process.
2018 was a successful year for us in that respect. In a recent study performed by the AMT (Applied Materials Trading), we were proud to discover that our recycling program saw almost 420 tons of materials being saved and put to better use. This equates to 7,140 trees, almost 3 million gallons of water, 1,260 cubic yards of landfill space, and nearly 200,000 gallons of oil. Our commitment to working in an environmentally conscious way has created this remarkable impact in a single year.
We are thrilled to have made such positive progress toward our goals of reducing our carbon footprint as much as we can, as well as minimizing waste in our processes and for our customers, and recycling every scrap possible.
As we move forward into the future, we take this responsibility with us, just as we have carried it since the founding of our business. Being the first SGP (Sustainable Green Partnership) certified offset printer in Florida, we consider ourselves ahead of the game when it comes to environmental responsibility and conscious practices – here are some of the things we do in an effort to keep our planetary impact as small as possible:
• Our materials are derived from low-impact or sustainable sources wherever possible.
• We recycle 100% of our printing plates and waste production paper.
• We offer digital printing, which reduces waste – a benefit for our customers and for the environment.
• We’ve reduced the time it takes for our offset printer to be ready for production, which has also reduced our carbon footprint.
• We make a concerted effort to continually reduce the consumption of raw materials.
Our high standards ensure excellence for our customers, for the environment, and for ourselves. We will continue to improve our practices to become even more responsible for the well being of the global ecosystem.
