Few Notes On Environment – Friendly Printing

The main purpose in peoples life should be saving the earth. You can save the world by utilizing products like printers, papers, ink which are friendly to the environment. As you all know that tons and tons of trees are being chopped off for making papers which is bad for environment. You can save trees by using recycle papers. The quality of this paper is not that good when compared to virgin papers. But the lifestyle and technology in this century have changed the mind of people a lot regarding the friendliness for the environment. Printing industries are considered to be the most unsafe industry. These consume lot of energy and water and also pollute the air and water with dangerous toxins.

These industries use petroleum ink which produces carbon emission gas from it. Inhaling of this gas can cause you problems like asthma. They are the major cause for damaging the environment by polluting the air with poisonous gas. These also cause the volatile organic compounds which contaminate the soil and underground water. So instead of this ink try to use eco – friendly inks (soy or vegetable ink) which is extracted from natural environment. The soy ink is extracted form soya and the quality of color is better than normal printer color. You can refill your printer cartridge ink than spending extra money on new one.

Green printer is a form of printing objects and words with friendly colors and papers. This printing saves time, currency and also the subsistence cost of the printer. Printing uses a lot of energy, so print when you feel it is necessary. Global warming can be saved if you publish on both sides. These printers are very costly but are very good for investment. The printing industry utilize on an average of 35,000 liters of water everyday.

If you really want to save the globe then stop using non friendly printers. Thats because these are free from all kinds of chemical composition. Now the technology and science has improved a lot in past 10 to 15 years. But there are still many people who fail to see the need of these printers. Why dont people take advantage of these technologies and save the world from global warming? For example you can find most of the books on net which are known as e – book. You can easily read the whole book on computer than spending money and damaging the environment. When the non recycled papers are burned, methane gas is produced in the air. This gas is very poisonous and dangerous for plants and trees and even for human beings which again brings us to destroying environment. So wake up and save the environment before its too late.
