You want to send out print marketing, but you’re concerned about the impact and want to find environmentally friendly printing solutions. We'll put your mind at ease and help you show your customers that you care about sustainability through our commitment to eco friendly printing.
The third The Printing House 2018 Sustainability Report was published to show our environmental initiatives for the year. This report outlines our environmental efforts put in place for people, paper, planet, and our partnerships.
Our Paper Procurement Policy supports the development and use of papers that do not come from ancient and endangered forests. This document ensures all suppliers enlist the same environmental responsibility practices we have chosen to implement throughout the company.
Our eco printing solutions save you shipping time and costs, lower emissions, and reduce the chance of damage. We send your files to the location closest to your print job's destination using a ‘Distribute-then-Print’ practice. ‘Distribute-then-Print’ means you have access to all TPH locations Canada wide. This saves the environment one shipment at a time.
With over 70 networked locations across Canada, you’re sure to find a TPH location close by. Our sustainable print shops are ready to provide environmental printing services you can feel great about!
TPH believes in the circular economy where there is no product called “waste”; there is only materials flow. All of our TPH locations participate in recycling through subcontracting recycling services (if not provided by the landlord) and through municipalities in which we operate. If something cannot be recycled, we reuse the material by-products to create things such as note pads and packaging.
We encourage our customers to print-on-demand, this eliminates any waste as you only print what you need. Too often, print collateral such as manuals, guides and forms will be out-of-date before there all used up. With orders are done on demand, you don’t have to worry about storing bulk orders, only throw half of it out later. Printing on demand helps us save energy by printing less and decreases waste by eliminating unnecessary copies. TPH is a short-run, on-demand printer, and we do not have minimum quantity orders. Short run printing allows our Customers to order only what they need, when they need it.
Green printing is easier than ever with a large selection of environmentally friendly and cost conscious paper options to choose from. TPH is committed to the conservation of the world’s ancient and endangered forest ecosystems. As part of our commitment, we strongly support the North American commercial scale development of pulp, paper and packaging alternatives. These alternatives are derived from agricultural residues such as wheat straw as a way to diversity the fibre basket and meet our continued need for high quality, cost effective products that also look great!
All FSC® papers are certified by the Rainforest Alliance™, including papers from up to 100% recycled post-consumer waste.
All of the paper used at The Printing House head office is 100% recycled. Both head office and the locations are mandated to recycle 100% of all recyclable materials due to the zero waste systems design put in place.
The Printing House’s Health, Safety, and the Environment committee provides extensive training and education on how to divert waste from landfills. TPH practices Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and we recycle all paper and toner cartridges. The Printing House internally also recycles batteries, electronic waste, and printing plates. Sometimes it is not possible to divert waste from landfills. In these cases, The Printing House ensures that this waste is dealt with appropriately, so that there is minimal risk to the environment.
