Snap Preston show us how to be Green and Proud
Snap Preston are very aware of their carbon footprint. Environmental sustainability is a significant issue for the printing industry, however even the smallest actions can make a difference.
Candi Browne, owner of Snap Preston, says "Our aim is to simply minimise the impact of our business activity on the environment in any way we can". Snap Preston uses equipment in power saving modes, uses recycled stock for stationary, researches all new equipment purchases for power consumption ratings and local deliveries are made on foot with the aid of a trolley.
''Our clients can also choose from a range of recycled stocks and we also use vegetable inks in the print process.all things we do without even thinking about it! We do a lot of little things which all add up we try to turn on the large laminator once a day as it takes an enormous amount of energy to heat up and then keep on and wastes a good half a metre of laminating film in its start-up process. Our attitude is that every little bit helps.''
Snap Preston also offset their carbon emissions. They do this with Greenfleet, a not-for-profit environmental organisation which aims to protect our climate by restoring our forests. Every year Snap Preston offset their carbon emissions from their car fleet by planting native forests around Australia. To date their commitment has helped plant over 465 native trees in forests like Laceys.
