OUR SUSTAINABILITY INITIATIVE
What is sustainability?
The EPA has defined sustainability as a simple principle - everything we need for survival and well-being depends on our natural environment. Sustainability maintains conditions where humans and nature cam exist in a productive harmony that fulfills requirements for both present and future generations. Sustainability is making sure we will have the resources to protect human life and the environment.
Print-O-Stat is committed to providing environmentally conscious products and services. We consider sustainability when we help customers recognize the environmental gain brought by the printing technology through Epson, and other services we provide like shredding and recycling. Print-O-Stat offers sustainable innovations recognizing the choices made as organizations, individuals or a society will be essential to our shared success.
Ways Print-O-Stat is helping
Thanks to our partnership with Epson, we can offer high quality and print solutions that reduce waste by up to 50%. Epson's products contain fewer moving parts and consumables compared to laser printers, which minimizes waste, making it easy for you to print more consciously. With Epson's Heat-Free Technology, there is no big electricity draw to warm up the machine and wait for that first page out because with the Epson, it uses heat-free Precision-Core technology.
Through our HP product line, specifically with our PageWide XL series, plotters use water based inks that generate no ozone or dust emissions as well as convenient recycling.
Additionally, Print-O-Stat's own scanning, archiving and shredding services offer more capabilities for reducing waste. In a world of online collaboration, hybrid workplaces and remote schedules, having your files stored digitally allows you to have all of your documents at your fingertips.
Reducing Energy Consumption
In addition to reducing waste, as a partner of Epson, we serve to help reduce energy consumption with Epson’s complete product line of Business Inkjet Printers. Their Precision Core Heat-Free Technology is designed to achieve low energy consumption, which uses up to 85% less energy than other top selling laser printers. From the desktop model to the robust, high-speed enterprise units, Print-O-Stat offers the Epson to fit every print need while cutting energy consumption in the process.
Did you know?
Small and mid-size offices average 15 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity per year. That's why focusing on reducing energy consumption can free up dollars that can be better used toward growing your business.
Office equipment and computers represent 31% of electricity use. Epson Business Inkjets eliminate heat from the ink ejection process, lowering power consumption. And, they require practically no warmup time to start printing.
The PageWide XL from HP also is ENERGY STAR® certified while seeing up to 10 times lower energy consumption to comparable LED printers.
Reducing CO2 Emissions
Thanks to our partnership with Epson, Print-O-Stat is dedicated to ‘Turn Down the Heat’ by choosing energy-saving technology. "Choosing Heat-Free Technology to lower energy consumption can help reduce green-house gas emissions and help us slow permafrost thaw in the arctic." - Katey Walter Anthony, Arctic researcher and future National Geographic Explorer.
Unlike LED technology, HP PageWide Technology operates without a fuser, reducing heat and noise generated—and producing no ozone.⁶ HP PageWide XL printers can be seamlessly integrated into the workplace with typical ventilation. HP water based inks generate no ozone or dust emissions.
Partnering with One Tree Planted
We are passionate about supporting our customer’s business needs, and we feel strongly about doing so in an environmentally conscious way. In addition to using and offering these incredible eco-friendly technology and services, we’ve also committed to planting a tree for each Epson sold!
To date, Print-O-Stat has been awarded a certificate of 1,000 trees planted and counting and has been named a privileged and distinguished partner whose contributions have been and continue to be essential to the reforestation, conservation and protection of endangered forests around the world
Reducing CO2 Emissions
Recycling is another big part of our company’s initiatives. We provide professional shredding services to ensure your confidential documents are not only securely disposed of but they’re also completely recycled once shredded. We’re always looking for new high quality recycled media options and we even offer seed paper that can be printed on now and planted later!
In addition to recycled media, many of the printer manufacturers we represent like Epson and HP now provide their ink in recycled packaging rather than plastic cartridges or offer recycling programs to ensure waste is at an absolute minimum.
We are thrilled to work with eco friendly partners who are focused on keep our customers’ hardware and ink cartridges out of landfills
