Twenty Years of Indigo Ink… it’s been quite the, ahem, JOURNEY. Thanks for joining us along the way. Every project you print at Indigo Ink automatically results in trees planted through our PrintReleaf reforestation program (12,605 trees to be exact). To date, Indigo Ink customers have collectively offset the equivalent of over 95 million letter pages of paper consumption since partnering with PrintReleaf in 2016 (see our current data here). From France to Dominican Republic to California, you’ve replenished forests all over the world just by trusting us to print your project. And we think that rocks.

We continue to move forward each year in reducing our environmental footprint and push for sustainability in all that we do. Here are a couple of our most recent updates:

Additionally, we have added a cardboard perforator to turn our waste cardboard into packaging material for shipping. Our cardboard was previously recycled, but now it can be repurposed for one more use before being recycled.

The Journey towards better sustainability continues on…
