Sustainability Be Green
At B&B we have made a commitment to minimize our environmental footprint. We continually assess what additional practices could be implemented to ensure a sustainable future to better our community for generations to come.
Responsible Forest Management
We are one of the few printers in the Portland area supporting the growth of responsible forest management worldwide by encouraging the use of recycled papers and substrates.
Our energy source is 100% Wind Power. Our purchase of wind power credits equal to the amount of electrical power we use in our production facility.
B&B encourages the use of high post-consumer content recycled papers, as well as papers from responsibly managed forests.
Committed to Recycling
Recipients of the BRAG award (Business Recycling Awards Group)
In 2019 we recycled 340.5 tons of waste paper and 14.1 tons of cardboard.
We recycled 4.84 tons of aluminum plates in 2019.
We also have LED High Bay 5000K Lighting in both facilities.
All expired and unused ink is recycled too!
All of our offset process and PMS inks are vegetable-based.
Our direct to plate system is water soluble which eliminates the need for harsh chemicals.
Our state-of-the-art KBA 6 color plus aqueous press uses the Sentinal Ink Management System for consistency of color and reduced ink waste and allows for less solvents in the cleaning process and much less waste of make ready stock.
Our multi-color presses have computer interfaced ink fountain keys to reduce make ready waste.
Energy Efficient Building
Concurrent with our environmental policy, we strive to provide our employees with a safe and comfortable workplace, competitive wages/benefits, and well maintained quality equipment.
We’re always looking for new ways to reduce waste and help the environment. Feel free to ask us about our practices and let us know if you have any suggestions.Get an Estimate
