Thomson-Shore is sensitive to environmental issues, is committed to protecting the environment, and therefore is participating in the movement towards respecting resources. As a printer, with paper a core part of our business, we are concerned about the future of the world’s remaining endangered forests.
We are committed to conservation of ancient and other endangered forests globally.
Thomson-Shore, Inc. confirmed its commitment to the environment by joining the Green Press Initiative (GPI). GPI is a non-profit program of Social and Environmental Entrepreneurs and is dedicated to increasing the use of environmentally preferable paper within the book industry. GPI serves as bridge to assist publishers in the process of converting to recycled and ancient forest friendly papers.
Eco Audits Available
Thomson-Shore will calculate the environmental savings of your order, based on the recycled content of the paper you choose, and the quantity of books you are printing. The audit will include the savings of trees, water, electricity and pounds of solid waste avoided. We will then prepare a PDF of the Eco Audit for placement in your book.
Only members of the green Press Initiative (GPI) may use the GPI logo. Since Thomson-Shore is a member of GPI, we have permission to use the logo for nonmembers that use us as their printers. Our interest of being environmentally responsible is mutual.
