Printing companies in the United States and all over the world should be dedicated to sustainability and to being environmentally sensitive in their day to day operations. Many use mostly recycled papers and avoid using paper made from old growth forests, using vegetable-based inks wherever possible. Printing firms should recycle any scrap papers and dispose of dangerous chemicals safely. There are of course federal regulations that must also be followed; organizations such as the Printers’ National Environmental Assistance Center exist to help printing companies comply with those regulations.
