Reduce

Pufferprint is implementing a Reduction Action Plan to reduce emissions from within its own operations and supply chain.

  • We are working with our supplier/suppliers to source more recycled content, and also to push them towards a path of climate neutrality themselves.

  • We're asking our customers who are able to wait, to opt for sea-freight shipping of their books, which has a much lower carbon footprint than air-freight.

  • We're actively in discussions for manufacturing partners that are closer to our customers, to reduce overall carbon footprint of our shipping.

Other Sustainability Notes

Climate change presents the greatest challenge, and conversely, the greatest opportunity of our generation. We are down to the most critical 10 years to reducing emissions and so we all must decide what type of business we want to be. Pufferprint is dedicated to a "do no harm" business practice that gives back more to the planet than it takes. We're a young company and new on the our sustainability path but can't imagine doing business any other way. We hope our customers, authors a publishers, also appreciate having a choice in the industry that accepts responsibility for our global impact and is dedicated to taking steps to address those impacts.
