  • all our waste paper pre and post production is recycled
  • our digital processes are chemistry free.
  • all our waste toners are collected and recycled.
  • we reuse boxes from suppliers for packaging finished products.
  • we minimise transport into Edinburgh by sourcing our products from fewer suppliers.
  • all our waste chemistry is collected and correctly disposed of.
