How do I provide eco-friendly design services?
I aim to educate clients on sustainable products such as recycled papers, alternative sources, inks, and green printing options. I work with a variety of printers, ranging from printers who use all American-made products to printers who have extremely green printing practices. In addition, I provide non-print services such as e-newsletters and databases for e-marketing, website designs, web advertising and more.
I believe the most successful way to market to your audience is a careful balance of PRINT AND WEB design.
Because I am a supporter of The Designer’s Accord, I make an effort to follow their basic code of conduct: Do no harm; Communicate and collaborate; Keep learning, keep teaching; Instigate meaningful change; Make theory action.

- Use only this uber-sustainable paper, Step Forward Paper, in my printer for administrative printing. It is made of the leftovers of wheat production. This amazing paper is 80% tree-free wheat straw, FSC CERTIFIED, and 100% committed to a better planet… not to mention founded by Woody Harrelson.
