Real Green Printing
Just as California Lutheran University is reducing its carbon footprint on campus, the University is contributing to a cleaner environment through its printing processes as well.
According to Michael Adams, Director of the Creative Media Center, CLU Magazine and virtually all other campus publications are printed on recycled paper with nontoxic inks and are recyclable. Custom Printing of Oxnard, which prints most of CLU’s publications, has received Forest Steward Council certification because of its green printing methods. “Custom Printing uses nontoxic soy- and vegetable-based ink and water-based cleaning solutions, and recycles all its parts and paper, reducing our carbon footprint to nearly zero,” Adams says.
