We aim to enable and inspire our clients to make more environmentally friendly choices in their work.

Crop can give you advice on how your choices of design, paper and print influence the environment. We point out the steps you can take to reduce your designs' impact, we can take you through the process of choosing a recycled or more sustainably sourced paper, and we can ensure our suppliers conform to the appropriate regulations.

Our printers have ISO 14001 and 9001:2000 environmental standard accreditation as well as being FSC certified (less than 5% of the UK's printers have this). We also offer consultations on print and mailing, to bring them into line with Corporate Social Responsibility schemes. We want to educate and inform people about the best ways to do this and explain what all the jargon means. CSR schemes can be so much more than just recycled paper. We can talk you through our green check list, which can reduce unnecessary waste. Examples of recycling myths can be found below:

  • MYTH: Chlorine is used to bleach recycled paper to make it look clean and white.
  • MYTH: Recycled papers are usually poor quality.
  • MYTH: Recycled paper is more expensive than virgin paper.
