Keeping Our Home Clean
In our continued commitment to the environment, Iconix takes every opportunity to offer consumers eco-friendly print solutions. We strive to expand the selection of recycled paper options and reduce waste whenever possible. Our industry isn’t carbon neutral yet, but we’re doing what we can to help move print production in that direction.
Recycled Paper Options
Our premium recycled stocks contain recovered fibers from post-consumer sources. The result is reduced impact on forest resources, reduced air and water pollution, reduced water and energy consumption, and the reduction of solid waste. Our FSC certified stocks are the perfect choice for our eco-conscious customers.
Our suppliers incorporate the use of environmentally-friendly inks and solvents. Our inks are vegetable oil-based and emit very low traces of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are the fumes that evaporate into the air from inks, solvents, and cleaners as they are used or while they dry.
VOC emissions from the printing process are as low as practicable due to the use of these eco-friendly materials. In comparison, petroleum-based inks and solvents release a much greater amount of VOCs than soy inks and our extremely low VOC solvents. Furthermore, the waste produced by soy inks poses a much reduced threat to the environment compared to petroleum-based inks and can be easily treated using modern methods.
