Rainforest Publications has made a considerable effort in research and development of our Field Guides to ensure that we are as environmentally friendly as possible while maintaining our high quality standards and integrity. To this end, we have done the following:
In our office we recycle all our office paper products. Our print cartridges are returned to the manufacture for reuse. We do not "out-source" in the production of our guides. We work as much as possible with local businesses reducing transportation costs. We print on Endeavour paper which features a high recycled content.
Our printer, Capitol City Press, located in Washington State, makes a concerted effort to invest in technologies that conserve raw materials and minimize waste. By keeping on top of developments in recycled papers, vegetable based inks managed through their special canister ink system and bindings, they continue to challenge themselves as a leader in environmentally friendly printing.
