Free Eco Icons

Please use these responsibly I’m the first to say that slapping a pretty picture of a leaf or a farm onto your product does not magically give it qualities of environmental sustainability. In fact, greenwashing is a pervasive nuisance in our culture, where everything from automobiles to pesticides are marketed as “eco-friendly.” But if you […]

Does Your Printer Share Your Values?

Over the past two months, Red Sun Press has been organizing to launch a Massachusetts initiative to celebrate the International Year of the Cooperatives (http://www.2012.coop/) and to strengthen our state cooperative economy. I’m pleased to say that we’ve put together a great advisory committee with representatives from national and regional co-op organizations and state cooperatives. […]

Environmental impact of print vs electronic media

It seems easy to find fault with printing for its environmental impact. Millions of trees dead. Gone to the mill to serve our gigantic needs for paper products.
