The Ligature is a pioneer in the use of renewable resources. Sustainability is an essential part of our core values. We are committed to minimizing our environmental footprint while offering you sustainable options such as environmentally friendly papers and inks, while simplifying the procurement of your stationery, marketing materials and other printing needs.
Sustainability does not mean you are choosing between being cost-effective and being conscious of environmental impacts. It integrates the two.
Our environmental focus includes minimizing energy consumption, producing less waste and using alternative energy sources. And we are partnering with firms who share the same commitment to our sustainability principles. We’re looking out for future generations.
Papers used for printing are primarily made from trees that come from tree farms; trees are a renewable resource. Paper is made from cellulose fiber, the source of which can be pulp wood, or a variety of other materials such as cotton, sugarcane bagasse, rice or PCW paper. Unlike plastic water bottles, computers, PDA’s etc., paper decomposes in a landfill.
Research shows that reading from paper is 20% - 30% faster than reading from an electronic screen? And that viewing a screen results in lower accuracy and causes more eye fatigue? Evidence suggests that comprehension and the ability to facilitate favors paper over viewing.
