McNaughton & Gunn – committed to EarthCare

Green printing is not just a trend at book printer McNaughton & Gunn. Inc. (M&G), Saline, Michigan. Being a good corporate citizen, environmental stewardship has been a conscious effort for M&G even before it came into vogue. M&G was the first Michigan Great Printer, is the recipient of multiple environmental awards and supports multiple earth friendly programs locally and nationally.

Because paper plays such a large role in the making of books, M&G offers a variety of eco-friendly paper options. Recycled papers in both white and natural with a minimum of 30% post consumer waste (PCW) are available for earth conscious authors and publishers.

M&G EarthCare is a company wide commitment to continually strive to improve in the areas of waste reduction and pollution prevention. In 2007, they became certified in the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain of Custody program. Chain of custody certification ensures the integrity of specified papers from the forest, to pulp mills, to paper mills, through the distributor to the printer and finally to the printed piece. You can also support green printing by purchasing other wood products such as building supplies and furniture marked with the fsc logo.

M&G EarthCare recognizes environmental protection is everyone’s responsibility and initiatives need to include more than recycled paper choices. A number of steps have been taken to cut down on the waste throughout the manufacturing process. Over the years, M&G has drastically reduced the amount of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) generated during the printing process. Technologies and methods, which substitute non-hazardous materials and utilize other source reduction approaches, are given top priority.
