Eco-Friendly Packaging Expert

May 28, 2024

Calitho, known as an eco-friendly packaging expert, with a commitment to sustainable and environmentally responsible practices. We are making printing processes more sustainable!

  • Calitho is an early adopter of green printing technology. By investing months in configuring locally available inks and chemistry to this brand-new technology, we acted as a Beta test site for the US market.
  • We are significantly invested in keeping our pressroom technologies environmentally friendly. This includes using a printing process that uses 80% less energy and emits zero Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).
  • The inks and coatings we use in production do not contain harmful chemicals like perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA) or perfluoro octane sulfonate (PFOS). Instead, some materials are plant-based, making them repulpable, biodegradable, compostable, and recyclable.
  • Calitho has been a FSC certified printer for over 16 years. Our recent renewal of FSC certification demonstrates our commitment to the continuity of the chain of custody for paper usage from responsibly managed forests.
  • Calitho’s CAD department engineers efficient designs to reduce the amount of materials used in product packaging. This reduction in weight leads to less fuel consumption during shipping.

Green Printing Technology

  • Calitho’s digital printing capabilities allow for on-demand printing, reducing the need for large inventories. This minimizes the environmental impact associated with excess production and disposal.
  • Further, liquid inks, instead of dry toners, are environmentally conscious as it reduces the amount of liquid required.
  • Calitho operates in the San Francisco Bay Area, subject to strict environmental measures from the state of California and the United States government.
  • Our compliance with these measures ensures that we function as green as possible and always aspire to be an eco-friendly packaging expert.

Calitho’s commitment to sustainability extends beyond their printing processes, making us a responsible choice for environmentally conscious printing projects. Calitho is a commercial printer and visual communications company serving the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. Let us help with your next project by requesting a quote today.
