  8. 8. Green Initiatives Foster Printing Service works diligently to create products that have a minimal impact on the environment. Our house stocks are made up of 10% post consumer materials. In an effort to utilize renewable resources, we are currently utilizing vegetable oil based inks that are classified as low VOC including linseed, canola, and soy bean. We also use water based coatings. Currently, Foster recycles paper, aluminum plates, all plastic jugs, cardboard, plastic shrink wrap, plastic stretch wrap, bubble wrap, and plastic banding material. We reuse any wood pallets that are in good condition. Any pallets that are unsuitable for reuse are recycled. Boxes that come into Foster containing special order stock are reused in shipping to send out printed jobs. Based on employee interest, Foster has set up a recycling center in the break room, allowing employees to recycle a large portion of their lunchtime waste. Maintenance and pressroom personnel are all using cleaning chemicals that are low VOC and are considered environmentally friendly. Foster is committed to providing high quality products that minimize our environmental footprint for years to come.
